Each year KenSAP selects fifteen to twenty students to join the program from hundreds of candidates. Once admitted to KenSAP, the students are given preparation for the American SAT examinations and guided through the elaborate university application process. This preparation takes place at KenSAP’s base, where the students and their instructors live together for about 15 weeks. The students pay nothing. All costs, including examination fees, are met by KenSAP.

Admission to the universities to which KenSAP students apply is extremely competitive. The best students from all over North America, and indeed all over the world, aspire to join these universities. For that reason, KenSAP is extremely selective in choosing the students to join the program. Only the students with the best chance of gaining university admission are taken into the program.

With this in mind, each year KenSAP stipulates a minimum score on the previous year’s KCSE exam as a requirement for all students who apply to join the program. The minimum KCSE score is just the first hurdle in a long application process, which is explained to qualifying applicants as they proceed through the process. All that is needed to begin the process is a scanned copy of a student’s KCSE results slip emailed to KenSAP.

Prospective applicants should keep in mind that applying to KenSAP is a long process involving a detailed application form and, for short-listed applicants, a diagnostic test and an interview. The process begins when KCSE results are released, and it goes on until the final selection of KenSAP’s class is announced.

Any student who has failed to achieve a score of 74 or better need not apply. No such application will be considered.

  1. KenSAP does not award university scholarships. Rather, once KenSAP students are admitted to the American universities, it is the universities themselves that offer the scholarships, which are based on the admitted students’ financial need.

  2. KenSAP has nothing to do with either post-graduate studies or transfer applications from students who have already begun university studies. KenSAP is strictly a program for NEW high school graduates seeking first-year admission for undergraduate study in North America.

  3. KenSAP does not work with students seeking athletic scholarships. All KenSAP students apply for need-based financial aid, which is awarded only by the most academically competitive universities to students who meet their extremely high academic standards.
