Happy Valley Academy

Happy Valley Uganda’s purpose is to have the Enrichment Program (EP) and Happy Valley Academy (HVA) work in a complementary way. The Enrichment Program, located in Nyaruhanga, Uganda, prepares its students for admission into secondary school which can only happen by passing the primary leaving exam (PLE). The students graduate from the EP after passing the PLE and matriculate into secondary school. The graduates of the EP are offered admission into Happy Valley Academy.

Happy Valley Academy is a non-profit, co-educational Christian secondary school that enables the youth of western Uganda to fully develop their social, emotional, and intellectual potential. HVA provides a six-year, tuition-free secondary education to young adults, with the goal of getting them admitted to a university or specialized vocational training of their choice. HVA is located in Rubanda District, Uganda.

To realize this, HVU set up the academy about 1 km from the Enrichment Program. The Happy Valley Academy maintains a rigorous curriculum, including 15 courses: history, math, physics, English literature, biology, chemistry, geography, physical education, Kiswahili, agriculture, fine arts, Rukiga, entrepreneurship, computer, and Bible study.

Quality secondary school education is indispensable in creating a bright future for Ugandan children. We believe that the Happy Valley Academy impacts our students for the better. HVU gives 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.
