Rift Valley Academy
  • Kijabe, Kenya

With a history spanning back to 1906, RVA hosted its first graduating class in 1950 and has become a cornerstone in the Kijabe community. The Academy sits on 90 acres of the upper escarpment overlooking Kenya’s vast and sunlit Rift Valley. At an elevation of more than 7,000 feet, RVA is sometimes referred to as the school in the clouds, and the campus is frequented by monkeys, baboons, and exotic birdlife. RVA is comprised of an elementary, a junior high, and a senior high school.
