The Wilberforce Academy was officially founded in February 2009 and launched in April 2009 by Dr. Robert Osburn. The Academy was the culmination of 18 years of reflection and scholarship which attempted to answer the question: “How can the best and brightest amongst us, especially those from foreign countries who study in North America, be empowered to bring the redemptive, healing influence of the Gospel of Jesus Christ to bear on the deepest problems facing their home societies?”
