At our site in the foothills of Kenya's Aberdare Mountain ranges, our students receive access to a highly- competitive education, characterized by small classrooms, progressive material, and gifted teachers. Our LaunchPad initiative helps students enter adulthood as self-sufficient leaders, ready to multiply their impact as agents of change in their communities and beyond.
At our primary school, we track student outcomes based on attendance, engagement and exam performance. We collect baseline data on students at the beginning of each academic year and track their development in reading comprehension and math, using the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA) and the Early Grade Math Assessment (EGMA). In addition to monitoring individual student's performance in core subjects, we are committed to developing our students critical thinking skills, study skills, communication and creativity.
In addition to operating a primary school on-site, we partner with 14 private and public schools to offer over 80 scholarships to students throughout Kenya. We currently support students in nursery school all the way to university.Our secondary school students attend schools across Kenya and our LaunchPad team works with each institution's infrastructure to determine a students' academic progress through: national exams, class placement, school reports/grades, attendance, participation and self-surveys completed by secondary students.
