College Maranatha of Nyanza is now under the management of UNILAK as part of a bigger plan by the Federation of Adventist Parents Associations for the Development of Education in Rwanda (FAPADER) that owns both establishments to develop the high school into a school of excellence.
“FAPADER sought our expertise in education management and entrusted in us the implementation of the vision it had for the school,” said Dr. Jean Ngamije, the Vice Chancellor of UNILAK.
UNILAK assumed management of the school situated in the center of Nyanza town in the South of Rwanda since September last year.
The University has since embarked on a number of initiatives aimed at developing Maranatha’s infrastructure and improving the experience of students.
“We are working on improving the quality of education offered by the school by instilling in our students the spirit of hard work and most of all focusing on practical teaching as dictated by the competence based curriculum we follow,” said Ngirabakunzi Felicien, Maranatha’s new headmaster.
UNILAK says it has a plan to increase the number of students who pass the secondary leaving exam, and those who continue with university studies.
College Maranatha offers four programs, namely computer science, computer science and management, accounting and computer applications.
UNILAK intends to use its expertise in teaching the subjects to grow the high school into a school of excellence.
Maranatha is just a kilometer away from UNILAK Nyanza Campus, making it easier to transfer knowledge and technology.
