Primary School – Roots Academy (K-8)

The South Sudanese refugees start their formal education at Roots Academy, a large K-8 school that attracts both boarding students and those from the local area. Roots encourages the students to celebrate their heritage through learning songs and dances of their culture, as well as religious songs.

“The Seeds of South Sudan students are gifted academically and are role models,” said Mr. Collins, head teacher at Roots Academy. He noted that the 1,000 Roots students often elected the South Sudanese students as Head Girl and Head Boy, even though they constitute a fraction of the student body.

“I urge people to support Seeds of South Sudan,” Mr. Collins continued. “They are going to change their nation and make it into one of the best nations in Africa.”

Secondary Schools (Grades 9-12)

At the end of eighth grade, all students in Kenya take a national placement exam.

The government of Kenya decides which high schools the students attend. The national high schools are the most prestigious, followed by provincial high schools and local high schools. Many SoSS scholars have attended national high schools, including Koelel and Emining Boys High Schools and Njonjo and Kipsigis Girls High School.

Below are the 21 high schools our SoSS scholars attend.
