Mara Hills Academy
Mara Hills Academy, located near our headquarters in the Indoyion Oloip area of the Maasai Mara game reserve, is a boarding school that enrolls 100 girls and 50 boys, ages 5- 16. At a time when most Maasai girls are preparing to get married and raise a family, MHA provides a safe haven for all students, especially girls, to engage in academics, sports and arts and develop life-long friendships. MHA’s goal is to graduate confident, well-rounded young people who are armed with the tools they need to make good life choices. The school’s academically rigorous liberal-arts program covers math, science, social studies/religion, English and Kiswahili. In 2012, MHA placed in the top five schools in the Narok district (which includes 38 schools) for its national test scores.
