The construction of the school was made possible by both the interest and support of the Mount Kenya Academy Foundation, USA, whose directors are Cindy Candler, Scott Hawkins and Sarah Hawkins, and the Coca Cola Company, all of Atlanta, GA, USA. The Senior School is founded on Christian principles and is run by The Mount Kenya Academy Foundation (a non-profit organisation) for the benefit of the children of East and Central Africa.
The Senior School has been equipped and furnished to fully satisfy the range of every student’s intellectual and physical needs. Scholarships are offered based on merit and need. Providing the finest education possible for the future leaders of Africa and beyond, Mount Kenya Academy prides itself on providing students with a strong foundation for a fulfilling and successful life. Our vision, to help nurture future generations of well balanced and morally grounded leaders, fills our campus with positive energy. When you visit you will find a community of friendly, hard working people who care about each other, who are focused on discovering the world we live in, and thinking of ways to improve it.
