Antigua and Barbuda Education


Schooling is free of charge and in principle compulsory. The education system is mainly a state concern, but there are also a few private, fee-paying schools, some of which receive state support. The school system is divided into three stages: elementary school six years, continuing school three plus two years and post-secondary level. Twelve years of compulsory schooling prevail from the age of 5-16, but only about half of the pupils go on to the higher level after compulsory school.
