About Cherub

Cherub College is a private non-profit college that is the educational arm of the Independent Episcopal Church that was founded in 1999 with one goal: To prepare students for a successful future. Today, we are recognized as a leader in providing a focused, career-oriented, and quality education that integrates the classroom with real-world experiences. We offer an array of Bachelor's degree programmes in several disciplines. As a college, Cherub focuses on developing the person as a whole through a broad education. In requiring our students to learn in several disciplines, we aim to produce graduates who are aware, perceptive, critical, and creative. It also gives students the tools that they need to thrive in an ever-changing world. 

Cherub College's founder, The Honourable Dr. Joan Rolle-King, who also served as the institution's first President, returned to the Bahamas and recognized the need for a state-of-the-art private tertiary institution to serve the needs of Bahamian students. Since it's humble beginnings, and three Presidents' later, Cherub continues to flourish as an institution of choice for students in The Bahamas.

Academic Excellence

Cherub College values its heritage, just as we value the diversity of our students, staff, and faculty, who hail from many backgrounds, faiths and heritages. 

The college strives to make Cherub affordable for all students through the offering of scholarships, need-based aid, work-study, and loan programs. 

Cherub College offers a myriad of programmes in 4 schools leading to Bachelor of Science and Bachelor of Education degrees. The college's learning philosophy highlights connections between disciplines. Its thoughtful and rigorous curriculum moves beyond immediate interests toward engagement in the larger world. This approach to education helps Cherub earn its inclusion in the top tier of educational programs in the region. Our graduates have earned numerous awards and Postgraduate scholarships. 

Passionate Faculty

Cherub's faculty is committed to their areas of expertise and over 90 percent of them hold the most advanced degree in their respective fields. Because the majority of our faculty are tenured or tenure-track and have earned a permanent position here, they're also committed to Cherub. This means that Cherub students receive an education from qualified professors who are passionate about what they teach and fully invested in the college and its students. 

A student-to-faculty ratio of 18:1 gives students an exceptional classroom experience, and Cherub's faculty also mentor students, act as advisers, and learn and research in collaboration with students. 

Learning Away From The Classroom

Cherub values learning beyond the classroom. Internships, externships, and opportunities to collaborate with the faculty on research are vital components of a Cherub education - and they help test career goals and build résumés. This experiential learning contributes to the stellar career outcomes and postsecondary education rates of Cherub graduates. 

Study-away experiences are another way that students learn beyond the classroom, and they're key to the global perspective that Cherub promotes. Each year, Cherub students study abroad. Many undergraduates take advantage of study-away opportunities during the January Term, a three-week period between semesters that allows students to study a particular subject in depth. 

An Open-Door Culture

An open-door culture is part of the Cherub ethos. Faculty and staff are enthusiastic, accessible, and focused on student success. Cherub professors enjoy being a part of the community.

An Active Student Body

Cherub's students are highly engaged in college life. Almost 25 percent of them compete in one or more of the college's extracurricular programmes. 

Student involvement, a Cherub hallmark, is also evident in our student organizations, including a campus gazette, as well as several service and honor societies. 

Sustainable Practices

Cherub takes seriously its mission to be good stewards of the resources around us. Green operations, partnerships with local businesses, and academic courses that incorporate sustainability have earned us a number of awards and commendations.
