WELCOME TO Rosslyn Academy

Rosslyn Academy is a vibrant community that sits on 40 acres of land located in Nairobi’s beautiful diplomatic suburb of Gigiri, approximately one mile from the UN complex and the US embassy. Rosslyn has a rich history of over 75 years as a school. Though those who attended Rosslyn in its beginning years would hardly recognize the campus, the purpose and mission of the school remain the same. That mission to inspire and equip each student to develop their God-given gifts for Christ-like service in the world community.
