What sets us apart from the rest is, our Christian Values and our disciplinary system. At the beginning of every term, we incorporate a value of the term that focuses on a specific Christian value, we include a bible verse and songs that make the children understand it in depth. The children reflect on the value and practice it in their daily lives.
Jonathan Gloag Academy offers the 8-4-4 curriculum and the Competency Based Curriculum (CBC) . Through our trained and dedicated teaching staff, we are able to offer our pupils the set curriculum and focus on the progress and needs of each pupil. We assess the students with exams every term and monitor the student’s performance with each assessment. Our language teachers also incorporate library lessons that help the students develop their vocabulary, boost their creativity skills, develop critical thinking and enhance their imagination.

At Jonathan Gloag Academy we strive to play a role in the community by touching the life of someone and impacting it positively. We put this in action by providing education to the children of Thomas Barnardos Home. We also have a project that funds the education of children in Mashimoni, Kibera. The school fees paid by parents goes a long way in educating these children. The students also get to socialize and learn with children from a different background.
We don’t just give students an education and experiences that set them up for success in a career. We help them succeed in their career—to discover a field they’re passionate about and dare to lead it.
