If you or a family member is enrolled in one of the premier international schools in Kenya, it may be pertinent to acquire information regarding the academic schedule for the year 2020. The Ministry of Education in Kenya is responsible for establishing the term dates and holidays for schools. The official schedule for the academic term and holiday dates for the coming year is customarily announced by the MOE towards the conclusion of the present year.

The school year in Kenya starts in January and ends in late October or early November, just before the Kenya Certificate of Primary Education (KCPE) and Kenya Certificate of Secondary Education (KCSE) exams are conducted. The school year is divided into three terms, and primary and secondary schools, as well as colleges across the country, follow the holiday and term dates set by the MOE.
