Sam Sharpe Teachers' College

The Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College founded in 1975 by the Ministry of Education and funded by the World Bank II is located in Granville, St. James, approximately six kilometers (6 km) from the centre of Montego Bay, the tourism Mecca of the Caribbean.

Built on a hill amidst the villages of Granville, Irwin, Tucker, Pitfour and Retirement, the College was envisioned to be a catalyst in community and human development. As it carried out its prime mandate of Teacher Education, it would give leadership, mentorship and encouragement to a young and problematic population of Granville and its environs. Its main mission was to the western end of the island - to increase opportunities in education at the tertiary level, thereby improving the quality of life of its people.


The "Sam Sharpe Teachers' College" is based on a rich tradition of academic excellence and intense engagement outside the classroom. Our students thrive in an educational community offering exceptional opportunities; great programmes, activities, organizations, and services are available to help students create their personal path to success at Sam Sharpe Teachers' College and beyond.
