St. John’s Seminary Rakwaro was registered as a double stream school by the Ministry of Education on 12th July 1965. Today, it is a single stream school due to the changes and development that has taken place in the education sector in Kenya, such as:

  • The introduction of subsidized secondary school education fee by the government.
  • The availability of computers in public schools which enhances IT.
  • Low payment of school fees by the parents/guardians.
  • Teacher turn-over for green pastures.
  • Students transferring to other schools with better facilities.
The foregoing information poses a challenge to the future of the seminary unless we respond with speed to solve them. We are particularly interested in Information Technology today. We have three computers used in the offices within the Seminary, which is not sufficient to adequately serve our needs. The student population is 120 instead of the recommended 600 utmost by the Ministry of Education. Availability of computers for students learning process can attract many to the seminary. We would wish to have other partners in education sector giving us some support on computers. One computer would be shared by three of four students for effective learning and teaching process.

We welcome any charitable organization, individuals of good will or foundations to come to the aid of young people who are eager to learn and be relevant today in the fast developing society.
