Marc Anthony Alix

Co-Founder of Le College de Cote Plage


Marc Anthony Alix was born in a little village in the North East of Jacmel (Haiti), at five kilometers away from that city. While attending Lycee Pinchinat, his native village high school, he began raising chicken and teaching young kids in the community so as to be economically independent. Teaching was the career he pursued at the Ecole Normale Superior, a Teacher College, in 1968. From 1971 to 1991, he worked as a teacher in several private and public secondary schools in Port-au-Prince, before he dedicated himself entirely to Le College de Cote Plage, a school he co-founded with some friends in 1978.

He was the first principal of Lycee Louis Joseph Janvier in the county of Carrefour. He ran that school from 1983 to 1987. Mister Alix helped set up several professional educational associations. They are as follows: L’Association des Ecoles Privés d’Haïti(1987) –The Association of Haiti Private Schools, Le Groupe de Reflexion et d’Action pour l’Education 1993 – The Action Group for Education. Le Consortium des Organisations du Secteur Privé del’Education 2007 – The Federation of the Organisations of the Education Private Sector. He is the running president of that federation. From 1994 to 1996, he was Ministry of Education CEO.
