First Class Academy was founded by two scholarship recipients in 2016. The goal was to provide the most affordable education without sacrificing quality. The private education market in Trinidad and Tobago is plagued by exorbitant prices with many losing sight of the primary goal which should be educating the future generations.
The vision of First Class Academy is to provide a dynamic and creative environment for students to achieve academic excellence.
The mission of First Class Academy is to provide academic excellence in the form of well qualified teachers and a safe, learning environment, thereby helping our students develop and excel in their respective programmes. Its aim is to prepare students with the necessary skill sets for success in all future endeavours.
