Calabar High School is constantly in need of material and financial support.  In recent years, the buildings have suffered severe damage from hurricanes and its infrastructure has significantly declined.

The school receives financial support from The Jamaica Baptist Union and the Government of Jamaica.  However, the school’s ability to make repairs and to purchase equipment is often limited, due to inadequate funds.

The school relies heavily on contributions from parents, friends and well wishers, and alumni organizations such as COBA ATLANTA
