In the last few years Kenya has grown exponentially. Reforms in many areas have brought out the need for better education as well. Thus, educational quality has recently received a lot of attention in Kenya. Although many children don’t attend school there are those who are lucky to have a quality education.

The education system in Kenya adopted the 8-4-4 system, which consists of eight years of primary education, 4 years of secondary education and 4 years of university education. Though some schools have also adopted the British curriculum where they deal with 7 years of primary, 4 years of secondary and 2 years of A level and later proceed to university.

One of these schools is Light Academy where two systems are offered to the studens. Light Academy was founded in 1998 in Nairobi and currently situated at the conducive learning environment of Karen, Nairobi. The school is committed to meeting the diverse needs of students from different cultural backgrounds by offering IGCSE & 8-4-4 curricula and Day & Boarding school together.

The school was built brand new and offers students a sound learning environment. The facilities are high quality and accomodate students in the best manner.

The teacher-student relationship in the school is another important aspect that both students and teachers value the most. Their relationship makes them achieve great victories together and prepare them for the future.

Despite having a short history, the school managed to attain remarkable achievements each and every year at both national and international levels.
