Welcome to Rift Valley Academy
We educate and disciple students toward their potential in Christ, thus enabling families to serve across the African continent.
RVA is a Christian boarding school in central Kenya with over a hundred years of rich history. We serve about 500 missionary children representing 30 nationalities and 80 mission organizations and churches. We also accommodate a small number of Kenyan national students and expatriate, non-mission students.
Our role is dyadic: supporting current mission work while investing in the next generation of missionaries and gospel-bearers. As a branch of Africa Inland Mission, we exist to see Christ-centered churches established and thriving among all of Africa’s peoples.
We invest in the next generation of missionaries and gospel-bearers.
“I feel like there’s no better place to raise our kids. The character and quality of the people that make up this close-knit community, the simpler way of life, the greater mission, and the overlap of our family life and ministry is a unique and powerful combination.”
–Jill Wills, RVA staff member
