Blantyre-based Maranatha International Academy has dangled 20 scholarships to outstanding students at the school.
The academy’s managing director Ernest Kaonga said the move is expected to increase competition in classes and improve performance in the Malawi School Certificate of Education (MSCE) examinations.
Said Kaonga: “As we proceed with our aim to produce the best results at secondary school level, we have decided to reward outstanding students with scholarships and for a start there will be 20 of these.”
This development is coming at a time when 70 percent of students who passed their 2012 MSCE examinations at the school qualified for University of Malawi entrance examinations.
Kaonga said the academy will conduct entrance examinations for those interested to repeat Form Four as part of ensuring quality.
He stressed that the school will continue to aim at increasing the good results through management of quality assurance drills which will continuously ensure that education delivery services at the institution are not compromised.
The academy enrols both boys and girls and it offers MSCE as well as the Cambridge International General Certificate of Secondary Education (IGCSE) classes for both Ordinary and Advanced levels, including computer lessons.
