  3. Pre-Primary section
  4. Norway-Kenya Christian Center for Youth Counselling and Empowerment (NORKEN)
  5. Sports Center

This is a new school located in Kiptugumo area in Kericho County in the Republic of Kenya, expected to be operational from February 2017.

Although the school is for both boys and girls, it will give rare opportunity to underprivileged girls in the region whose chances to acquire education on their own is minimal due to many hinderances, among them forced early marriages, pregnancies and poverty.

Kericho County is located in the Rift Valley, bordering the following counties; Nandi to the North, Uasin Gishu and Baringo to the North East, Nakuru to the East and South East, Bomet to the South, Nyamira and Homa-Bay to the South West, and Kisumu County to the West and North West.

  • What you get for choosing to study in our Academy:

Choosing our Academy will give you a bright future if you are a hardworking student. You will get a chance to acquire a scholarship to proceed to university on completion of your 4-year secondary education in our institution.

The Jubilee Academy will prepare students to understand the importance of a positive contribution to the development of the society they live in, and ensure they acquire behaviours of national patriotism, respect and to rely on their own judgement in cooperation with others in adapting a sense of purpose and discipline in life.

Upon completion of their studies, the students may choose to proceed to college. The competition for admission to colleges and other post-secondary education is high and costly, so the choice of a secondary school matters alot, when weighing options for further education.

In this regard, The Jubilee Academy Community Institution students will be lucky because they will benefit from different categories of scholarships, that will be awarded in order to enable those who pass their KCSE well, to proceed to universities or other institutions of higher learning.

Program Description:

The Jubilee Academy, Secondary School section, is a school for boys and girls who are high achievers and need financial help one way or another. Many schools in rural areas of Kenya are unable to give secondary students the necessary quality education, especially when students have limited interaction with their teachers, required to share learning materials such as textbooks because of shortages that also curtail them from taking materials home to study.

The fees is another hurdle affecting many Kenyan families. The Jubilee Academy’s curriculum will focus on math and science as well as improving students’ self-confidence. The Academy will employ university graduates and other supporting staff and while doing this will give teachers from the local community a priority.

Students will receive their own textbooks for every subject and a light lunch so that students are able to concentrate on studying. In 2017, the school seeks to enroll 80 students and more than 20% of them will be awarded scholarship grants while the rest will have their fees reduced in their second year as a student in the Academy. Students who attend without paying will be sponsored by donors who will have the right to receive progress reports twice a year.

The Academy will follow the Kenyan National Curriculum, but will offer a cultural shift that is unique from traditional Kenyan schools. This shift will include adopting teaching and learning methods which emphasize critical thinking and active class participation. The school’s approach is to develop skills which will prepare students for life-long learning and for adapting to a rapidly changing world. Lessons integrate the national curriculum with character development, citizenship, and attention to physical and emotional wellbeing. Through this whole-child approach, students both meet the requirements for passing the national exams and are given tools which will serve them throughout their lives.
