Kenya has some very expensive and exclusive schools that have attracted the children of the who-is-who. The type of schools where school fees for one semester is worth more than a lot of Kenyan households earn in a year.
And the crazy thing you wouldn’t believe is that some Kenyan celebs actually studied at such schools. Yup, they attended schools where their parents had to pay north of half a million shillings per semester.
Let’s dive right into Kenyan celebs who attended Kenya’s most expensive schools:
#1. Nick Mutuma
The actor attended Braeside for his high school education. The school is a part of the Braeburn Group of Schools. The school fees per term of Braeburn International school is Ksh. 782,310 per term.
#2. Joey Muthengi
She attended Rift Valley Academy which is one of the most exclusive schools in the entire East African region. Interestingly enough, her brother, Holy Dave attended Machakos Boys… I laughed so hard when a good friend of mine revealed this fact. Talk about disparity.
#3. Anne Kiguta
She attended Rusinga School. Interestingly, she was classmates with yet another well known and celebrated Kenyan who also became a media personality; Waihiga Mwaura.
#4. Size 8
The gospel singer turned evangelist attended State House Girls before transferring to Hillcrest. She attended the school on a scholarship.
#5. Edith Kimani
Like Size 8, Edith Kimani started her high school education at State House Girls before transferring to Hillcrest on a scholarship.
#7. Michelle Morgan
She attended Hillcrest where the lowest amount of school fees a student would pay (or rather, have their parents cough up) is 567,000 per semester.
#8. Fena Gitu
The singing sensation too attended Hillcrest school. It’s almost like they were vying in an unknown contest to create the most Kenyan celebs.
#8. Almasi (Ian Nene)
The Machachari actor attended school at Brookhouse. This school whose main building looks like a castle is one of the most expensive schools in Kenya. Parents of a Grade 5 student have to pay 2.07 million Kshs per annum.
#9. Janet Mbugua
She too attended school at Brookhouse. And just to give you how bonkers the fees can become, Grade 12 parents pay a minimum of 2.37 million shillings a year as fees.
And when it comes to school fees, do you know a partner that can help you pay is Co-op Bank. Why? Because school fees are all about planning.
