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. As the school continues its march toward spiritual vibrancy and academic excellence, its 500 students bring diverse background from around the globe, including: the Americas, Africa, Asia, Europe, and Australia. This accredited and highly respected international Christian school focuses on developing graduates who apply biblical truth and develop intellectually, develop and express God-given abilities, and lead healthy lives.”
