The Education Board of the Cameroon Baptist Convention, in collaboration with the Cameroon Government, seeks to provide Christian education to young Cameroonians as an expression of Christís love to them. This mission is achieved through careful planning, judicious implementation and regular objective evaluation. We seek to develop the whole person academically, spiritually, morally and socially to be God fearing Cameroonians. Currently, the Education Board of the Cameroon  Baptist Convention has over One thousand employees and about 32.800 pupils/students in her education system. Over the past 10 years, CBC schools have constantly obtained good result in public examinations organized by the  Ministry of National Education and the Cameroon GCE Board. On the average, the primary schools graduate 3,125 pupils with a percentage pass of about 89.13 annually, while the colleges graduate about 342 ordinary level students and 292 advanced level students with percentage passes of 88.88 and 80.13 respectively.

 Background of the Education Board of the CBC

 Baptist education started in 1844 through the efforts of Rev. Joseph Merrick who opened the first school in the coastal town of Bimbia. In 1928 the Cameroon Baptist Mission started providing organized schooling in order to fulfill the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and assist the government of Cameroon in providing education for all. Salaries of personnel and other financial implications never used to be a problem since the missionaries who formed the larger proportion of the staff, were paid from their home country, and government subventions used to come in full and regularly too. In 1970, the provision of this education to young Cameroon became the sole responsibility of the Baptist Christians of Cameroonian Nationality. The missionaries then decided to concentrate more on evangelism and health. Since then the efforts of the CBC have developed into the creation of and running of 6 managerial  areas with 11 nursery schools, 103 primary schools, 7 secondary / high schools ad 1 teachersí training college. These services are provided in four of the ten provinces of the Republic of Cameroon. This growth rate was made possible because the government subventions were still regular.
