Rosslyn Academy, an international Christian school founded in 1947, is a private coed day school with a North American curriculum for grades K-12. Approximately 34% of the 538 students are American, and more than 41 nationalities are represented in the school.
Situated within a kilometre of the United States Embassy and UNON (United Nations Offices) headquarters, Rosslyn Academy sits on 40 acres of former coffee plantation in a residential area on the outskirts of Nairobi. Rosslyn provides a beautiful and calm refuge from the bustle of the capital city. In the center of the campus the original plantation house serves as the administration building. Although the elementary, middle and high schools are located on the same campus, each school has its own administrator, facilities and culture.
Rosslyn Academy is accredited with the Middle States Association of Schools and Colleges and the Association of Christian Schools International. The Academy is also affiliated with the Association of International Schools in Africa.
The high school building includes academic and fine arts classrooms, while the theater houses an auditorium, individual practice rooms and music classes. The secondary media center houses 13,000 volumes as well as the secondary school technology lab.
Rosslyn’s high school program uses 14 regular classrooms, 2 science labs, 2 music rooms, 2 art rooms, computer room, and a sporting complex. In addition to classroom space high school students use a modern media center, computer resource lab, home science facilities, and theater.
A guidance center contains offices for the MS and HS chaplains as well as the college guidance counselor
The Middle School
The Middle School is situated on one edge of the Rosslyn campus only a short walk from the Media Center and Lab. It has a nice view to the adjoining valley. The main section is two blocks of rooms separated by a multi-leveled commons. There are 3 classrooms in the lower block and two science labs on either end of the upper block. In the center of the upper block is the science storage rooms and offices. Then there is a separate building with two stories consisting of two classrooms, two offices, and one Middle School workroom/lounge. There is also a small building for male and female toilets.
Rosslyn’s Elementary School facilities are built around a central, tree shaded courtyard which makes an enjoyable meeting place using the outside seating areas. The Kindergarten through 5th grade classroom spaces include eleven (11) core classrooms and then specialist classroom areas for instruction in Art, Music and Science.
Additional facilities include computer labs, a large library/media center, and reading labratory & special needs offices. Outdoors we have a lunchroom/assembly building, three (3) basketball courts, a soccer field (used for physical education and intramural activities), and 3 playground areas.
