Alpha Institute is located at 26 South Camp Road in Kingston, Jamaica — the same location as when Alpha Cottage opened in 1880.  Alpha is also online and working with partners around the world.

Tee shirts and wood products are available for sale at the gift shop daily and the Alpha Live! tour of our campus is available upon request (at least 24 hours notice is requested). Business hours are 9am-4pm. For more information or to request a visit please call 928-1345.

Take the tour! You can walk the very places where trombonist Don Drummond learned his craft. Tour the grounds that Dizzy Reece, Joe Harriott, founder members of the Skatalites, Johnnie Osbourne and Winston Foster called home before becoming household names.
