Chapel and Spiritual Emphasis Week
A wide range of opportunity for spiritual growth is available and encouraged for Rosslyn Academy High School students.
Students participate in weekly chapel services which are designed to teach, disciple, and encourage from Scripture those who already have a personal relationship with Christ while inspiring and drawing to faith those of other faith backgrounds. We develop unity as we worship and pray together.
In addition, each year the high school dedicates a week as Spiritual Emphasis Week (SEW). During this week, guest speakers challenge students to evaluate their spiritual life and to dedicate themselves more fully to God’s purposes for their life.
Christian Religious Education
Each student also participates in Christian Religious Education (CRE) courses each year of attendance. A variety of age-appropriate courses provide opportunities for students to interact with Scripture and to better understand the teachings of Christianity.
The courses focus on topics such at Old Testament (9th grade), New Testament (10th grade), World Religions (11th or 12th grade), Ethics (11th or 12th grade), Christian Leadership (elective) and Christianity and Culture (elective).
Finally, our faculty members are committed believers who provide a devotional time and prayer at the start of each school day. Many students also participate in student-led Bible study and prayer groups. These are usually started by students motivated by a passion to know more of God. Teachers and our school chaplain readily facilitate these opportunities.
Another avenue for developing spiritual growth is loving and serving our neighbors through many grade and school level programs. We have a school-wide effort which is our annual Christmas Project. Over the last 8 years our school has raised over 4.5M Ksh to support the local efforts of organizations such as Thika School for the Blind, St. Peter’s Orphanage, The Nest, Life 4 Kenya, and New Dawn Education Center.
