The Amazima Secondary School

Our secondary school exists to equip Ugandan students with the tools of learning to enable them to live fully for the glory of God.

Our Story

On February 13, 2017, after four years of planning, designing, building, and much prayer, The Amazima School opened for its first day of classes. Located on 70 beautiful acres just off the Nile River, approximately 800 vulnerable children will receive an exceptional Christ-centered classical education from a Ugandan perspective.

Academics & Training

The Amazima School is a classical Christian secondary boarding and day school located on 70 beautiful acres near Jinja, Uganda. We offer a top-notch academic education for students from S1 – S6 and our current plans include an exceptional two-year vocational school. The Amazima School focuses on excellent academics, critical thinking, servant leadership, nurturing relationships, and a Christian worldview. We believe every child is made in the image of God and has infinite worth. Our well-trained school staff are life-long learners and come from all over the world. We all share a passion for giving Ugandan high school students the tools of learning, so they will be able to live life fully for the glory of God.

Student Life

We provide every student with a loving home, invested family mentors, excellent teachers, nutritious food, great extra-curricular opportunities, strong academics, and vocational studies all within a biblical worldview. 

A Day In The Life

We believe God made each of these children in His image, which gives them infinite and eternal value. The Amazima School is a unique and transformational opportunity to educate and empower the young people of Uganda with God’s love. The video below shows you what a typical day looks like for our students.

Profile of a Graduate

The Amazima School desires to graduate young Ugandan men and women who will love the Lord with all of their heart, mind, soul, and strength. We expect graduates to be skillful in using the tools of learning: to think critically, listen carefully with discernment and understanding, reason persuasively, and articulate precisely. We intend for our graduates to be exposed to the Classical virtues of Truth, Goodness, and Beauty in order to demonstrate those through the Spiritual virtues of Faith, Hope, and Love. We endeavor for our graduates to be socially graceful and spiritually gracious; having strong integrity and a lifelong passion for learning. We strive to produce graduates who will not conform to the pattern of this world, but are being transformed into the likeness of Jesus Christ: serving sacrificially, profoundly impacting their families and communities in Uganda, and boldly bringing the message of Christ’s salvation to a broken world. Ultimately, our desire is that all Amazima School graduates, through the indwelling of the Holy Spirit, will do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with their God.
