Primary Schools

The Diocese of Ikot Ekpene is blessed with many primary schools.  Some are boarding schools and serve children from across the State and beyond, but most are parish based schools serving the local community.

Primary schools serve children from ages of around 3 to 10 depending upon the child’s ability.  Many people seek out Catholic schools in Nigeria because of the dedication of teachers and administrators in addition to the formation in the Catholic faith.

Some of the greatest needs of these schools includes running water, books, electric generators and better infrastructure.  If you would like to assist a particular school, especially a new and growing school, please contact Fr. Gerald Akata directly so that he can help connect you and inform you of the needs.

Below is a short video and pictures highlighting a couple of our schools.
