There has been for a decade ben a need to create a girls high school that emulates the educational excellence and character buildingphilosophy and ethos of the renowed Starehe boys centre. Despite various attempts in the past, this initiative has been unsuccessful. The found of Starehe boys centre, the late Dr. G.W.Griffin, had himself on several occasions appealed to charities and the authorities to set up a corresponding Starehe girls high school. Now with the backing of a dedicated team of proffesinals, provision of 50 acres of land by the limuru girls centre in Nairobi and substantial government support, Starehe girls centre has now become a reality.
To establish a national centre of academic excellence for bright but disadvantaged girls incorporating high standards of discipline, responsibility, integrity and service.
To provide a homely, supportive environment within which girls from disadvantaged backgrounds can develop their full potential in academic and personal development. Also to redress the imbalance in access to quality education and leadership opportunities for disadvantaged adolescent girls.
