THE LEWIS CHIKHWAZA CHRISTIAN ACADEMY was established to give the children within Kondanani the best possible education and chance to excel in the future. It was named after the co-founder of Kondanani, Lewis Chikhwaza who was a prominent Malawian leader, Member of Parliament, businessman and pastor.
The school has its own seven acre piece of ground within Kondanani and is completely secured with electric fencing. Aside from the various learning centres, offices and ablutions within the school premises, we also have a football field, running track, a dodge ball court, netball hoops, and various other playground equipment.
We use an American curriculum called Accelerated Christian Education(ACE) This is an individualised system which allows the children to work at their own pace and gives them one-on-one time with the teacher (supervisor / monitor) to overcome any personalised struggles. We also have a full time remedial teacher who spends dedicated time working with any children who have special needs.
The children between Grade two and matric are schooled within three large open-plan learning centres (classrooms) which are supervised and monitored by a trained staff.
At the moment there are just short of 100 children being educated at the Lewis Chikhwaza Christian Academy.
