our values

A-Level Overview

The A Level programme was started at Rusinga in 1994 and over the years, we have produced graduates who have joined world class Universities in the UK, USA, Italy, Canada, Australia, Switzerland and South Africa. Many students have also opted for the private and public Universities in Kenya. The Rusinga A Level Campus offers students an environment and experience which bridges the gap between School and University study. It brings a University approach and maturity to the students' work and broadens and deepens the academic and intellectual perspectives of the student which is of benefit to their tertiary education.

The students at the A Level Campus are encouraged to cope confidently with greater personal responsibility and freedom. Students are expected to develop effective study, research  and presentation skills and to take responsibility for aspects of their learning. Emphasis is placed on a firm Christian foundation, self discipline and good study skills.
