Facilities include two libraries, fully equipped science laboratories, networked computer rooms, swimming pools, squash and tennis courts, a multipurpose hall, and outdoor amphitheatre.
The campus, set on an 18 acre (7.3 hectares) site overlooking the Indian Ocean in the Kizingo area of Mombasa, was inspired by Swahili architecture and built with great attention paid to the surrounding natural environment as well as esthetic considerations. Conceived by a renowned architect, the campus is designed to be attractive, self-contained and secure, and features a variety of best practices in facility design, including construction techniques that allow multiple uses of interior spaces as well as classroom environments conducive to interactive learning.
The Academy features fully equipped laboratories for the general sciences, two libraries ( Junior School and Senior School) and resource centers, a design and technology workshop, art rooms, a cafeteria and covered dining area, an outdoor theatre and an indoor multi-purpose hall. In addition to the two computer laboratories, the Academy is networked and computers are a common resource for teachers and students. The large multi-purpose hall is used as an indoor gym for basketball, badminton, volleyball and gymnastics, as well as a place for theatre productions, parent-teacher meetings and other gatherings and events.
In addition to the large outdoor field for sports such as football, cricket, and athletics, other facilities for sports include a swimming pool, a dive pool, a dance studio, a weights room, tennis courts, and four squash courts, three of which have public viewing facilities.
