About the Academy
In pursuit of excellence, Chariots for Hope Academy exists to empower students to be men and women of character and to equip them with knowledge and skills through integrated curriculum, small class sizes, and devoted teachers.
What makes Chariots for Hope Academy distinct?
Small Class Size
At the local public school in Maai Mahiu, class sizes ranged from 80 – 110 children per teacher. This is incomprehensible to our American mindset. In many classrooms there were not nearly enough desks and children used slabs of wood piled on rocks to complete their assignments. At Maai Mahiu Academy the class size is limited to 30 students per teacher.
Leading Chariots for Hope Academy at Maai Mahiu is Victor Oyoo. He brings to the table both the expertise on school administration as well as deep relationships with the children and an understanding of their needs.
Joining Victor are qualified teachers who are dedicated to helping our children learn in creative and interactive ways. They are teachable themselves and eager to learn ways of educating the children beyond the typical rote memorization methods that are often used.
Chariots for Hope Academy fulfills the requirements for the standard Kenyan curriculum including studies in math, history, science, religious studies, and language. The Academy is committed to taking our curriculum a step farther to include teaching life skills and Christian values that apply to everyday life.

Where is the academy?
Is the Academy only for children at the Maai Mahiu Children’s Home?
No, there are children from the community that attend the Academy alongside the children in our homes. The school desires to be a resource for those in the community as well.
