Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Adult Education, Education, Educational Services

Mission: Henricus Colledge (1619), "America's 1st College", was originally founded by the historic 1619 First Virginia General Assembly, convened in the wooden church on Jamestown Island [a year before Plimouth Rock, 17 years before Harvard, 74 years before Wm & Mary, and 200 years before Jefferson's UofVa!]. The Colledge grew from the English Reformation...which placed high value on literacy, representative government, private property, individual responsibility, free enterprise capitalism, and the co-equality and constraint of state and church, i.e. American Civilization's "Liberty Under Law". Henricus Colledge (1619) was revived in 1992, to tell the [no longer well-told] story of the purposeful development of American Liberty, especially as designed by the Virginia Company.
