ICT DEPARTMENT

In an increasingly technological dependent society, ICT proficiency is a must have credential for young people. Our task is to equip all learners with the crucial hands-on skills and knowledge necessary in everyday life. The department is also charged with providing reliable access to the IT infrastructure for both students and staff through a stable and effective IT network, appropriate to their learning and teaching needs so that they can reach their full potential.
The introduction of Interactive Boards has made the learning process much more vivid and exciting for all subjects. We strive to make Nairobi Academy a model institution as far as embracing and adopting new technology goes.
