Thank you for attending our Overseas Boarding Schools Expo in Nairobi.
We’ll help find the right school for your child to attend overseas.

Tap into our education expertise and global network
We understand how important it is to find the best boarding school for your child no matter where that might be in the world. From our UK office, we regularly meet with pupils and parents as well as school admissions staff. We understand what they are looking for when they evaluate student applications.
Thanks to our personal connections and experience with hundreds of schools in the UK as well as some of the best in Europe and North America, we can expertly guide you through the boarding school admissions process to ensure your child enrols in their top quality dream school where they can happily thrive.
We match schools to your child
We work on behalf of families and students. Unlike many international student recruitment agencies, we don’t represent certain schools. Instead, Academic Families has deep knowledge and experience with a huge variety of boarding schools and we match the schools to your child based on their strengths and weaknesses.
We offer both admissions and guardianship support
We can support you and your child from your initial interest until their last day at school, and we treat every child as if they are our own. Academic Families has 10 years of experience looking after international students from over 40 countries.
We’re a friendly team and have lived or travelled extensively outside the UK, including 37 years of living in Kenya, so you can rely on our excellent understanding of East African students as well as our international outlook and experience. Many of our staff are also mothers who have sent their own children to study abroad. Meanwhile, our younger staff have studied, lived or taught overseas and all enjoy a special connection with the children and teenagers we look after.
Quality you can trust
We’re highly respected by families and schools, and have been awarded the highest gold standard accreditation from AEGIS (Association for the Education and Guardianship of International Students) and the Boarding Schools’ Association. We are recognised by the British Council, English UK and Youth Mental Health First Aid for our professionalism, expertise, in-depth knowledge and experience of the UK education system. We are also certified Safe Recruiters, so our team and host families are all recruited according to strict safeguarding guidelines.
