HAPPY VALLEY ACADEMY
HVU’s main purpose is to establish the Happy Valley Academy, a non-profit, co-educational Christian secondary school that will enable the youth of western Uganda to fully develop their social, emotional and intellectual potential. The Happy Valley Academy will provide a six-year, tuition-free secondary education to 240 young adults, ages 14 – 19, with the goal of getting them admitted to the university or specialized vocational training of their choice.
To realize this vision, HVU will obtain ten acres in Nyaruhanga, Uganda, adjacent to the current Enrichment Program's location. Once the funding goals have been achieved, the Academy is expected to launch with a class of 40 students, and enroll an additional 40 students per year until maximum capacity of 240 students is reached. The Happy Valley Academy will maintain a rigorous curriculum, to include history, math, physics, English literature, biology, chemistry and Bible study.
Quality secondary school education is indispensable in creating a bright future for Ugandan children. We believe that establishing the Happy Valley Academy will immediately impact our students for the better. HVU will give rural Ugandans an opportunity to develop the intellectual abilities that they require to succeed in a knowledge-based economy and to become advocates for positive social change.
