Seje Glory Center Academy is the only private primary school in the community, and has a vision to provide a high standard of quality Christian education for students from grade 1 to grade 8. The school is achieving in the top five in the region for private schools and thanks to donations from generous donors the facility continues to grow to meet the needs of the growing enrollment.

Many of the students in the region come from the poorest of the poor and the dream of completing school is unatainable without this academy.

The school also has a feeding program for students, providing a nutritious breakfast and lunch during the school week. For many students, this is their only reliable source of food.

Latest update

School year closed

The 2021 school year closed out in March of 2022. The little Pre Primary students had their annual graduation ceremony and celebration as they moved up to Primary level and enter Grade one. They celebrated with the PP students from Yogo to form one exuberant preschool celebration complete with flowers, gowns, speeches, special presentations and food!

The Class 8 students finished their regular classes then spent the next two weeks in dawn to dusk studies to prepare for the Kenya Certificate of Primary Exams. The school staff have been really struggling with the covid restrictions, extreme increases in the cost of living that forced four of them to make the decision to leave Seje primary.  

This left the school in a bind as they sought out more teachers who would fit the excellent program and endure the terrible wages. Each teacher makes about $100 Canadian per month. This staff change really affected the C8 program and it took months for the teachers and students to find their sync and move ahead well. The end result was a school result of 313.11, far down from last year’s 344.79. The board and staff are so proud of the work the C8 teachers and students put in to get this year finished and are celebrating in the midst of the disappointment of the overall result.
