CEGAB was founded in September 2000. During its first three years, the school was situated at a mission MEBSH. However after 3 years they had to leave the mission and set up the school in the local cultural center.
They spent four more years there. Although they were grateful for space difficulties such as constantly packing up the school to allow for the center to be used for community functions often arose. Throughout those four years the School tried to get help from various institutions to no avail.
On July 7th, 2007 DIGICEL took the accepted the application to build a school for that community. On September 13th the school was inaugurated and named CEGAB.
