The institutions will offer the Kenya National Curriculum, delivered in world-class teaching methods that develop character, skills and connection, preparing students to lead and innovate in the 21st century.
Speaking during the launch, Nova Pioneer East Africa Managing Director, Ms K. Danae Pauli noted that the move was informed by the rising need for world-class education to compete in today’s world, thanks to the technology that has made it a global village.
‘‘We are a Pan-African network because we believe that change that will make a difference in the continent goes beyond a single school. By connecting our students across our network and the world beyond through our international standard education adopting the Kenyan curriculum, we will make the necessary difference in our students lives” added Ms Pauli.
