About St Austin’s Academy

St. Austin’s Academy was founded in 1970 by Academic Services Limited as part of a programme to establish centres of academic excellence in Kenya. Founded by the first African Director of Education following independence, the Academy was a deliberate attempt to break the segregated educational systems of the day and to offer a truly integrated programme. The original vision has been extended so as to provide a values-based programme for the uncertain, international world into which our students are entering.

The Academy consists of four main areas: the Pre-Primary (Nursery and Kindergarten), Primary (Years 1 – 6), Lower Secondary (Years 7 – 9) and the Upper Secondary (Years 10 – 13). These schools share the same generous compound in Lavington, one of Nairobi’s most exclusive residential areas.
