St. Andrews is a secondary day school - forms 1-4 (senior High School). Currently there are 202 students. The school year in Kenya begins in January and consists of 3 months in school, 1 month vacation,for 3 terms.
The required Kenya curriculum covers English (all classes are taught in English as it is the national language of Kenya), KiSwahili (the official trade language), Math, History, Geography, Agriculture, Biology, Physics, Chemistry (two sciences required), Business Studies and Christian Religious Education.
2012 is our first graduating class - the pioneer students who began their studies in a rented mud-walled room in Kasarani. They will take the Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education examinations, and it is our prayer that many will qualify for University.
In addition to the required curriculum, the Board of Governors recognizes that not all our students will be equipped or able to access a formal University education. St. Andrews is in the process of evaluating programs that will help prepare students for vocational careers in order to become self-sustaining members of families and society. These additional programs would involve mentorships and apprenticeships in outside businesses such as mechanics, carpentry, welding, plumbing, hospitality and tourism, cooking, childcare, tailoring, gardening, etc.
