A School that is part of CCAP

Hoya Secondary School began as part of Hoya Basic School. The local community is made up of about 20,000 people who are mainly involved in farming and trading. Most of the population only has a primary ("basic") level of education, and health facilities and schools are not readily available here.  In response to community need, the school grew to serve grades 1-10, accommodating up to 700 students.  The facilities of Hoya Basic School were very tight even just for the primary grades, but the need was great for a secondary school as well.

The Zambian government has changed the education policy, requiring separation between basic and secondary schools. Many basic schools have been be limited to primary grades (grade 1 – 7), and others have been changed to secondary schools. Hoya Basic has been upgraded from Basic to a Secondary school (grade 8 – 12). CCAP acquired enough land to develop Hoya Secondary school, separating it from Hoya Basic school, so that the Secondary school could operate on its own, as required by the government, but on the same campus, and as needed by the increasing demand for education.  The Hoya community is now able to provide grades 1-12 within the two schools, with students benefiting from Christian Education from basic through secondary within the same campus.

The construction included community involvement.  The community provided upfront materials such as building sand, crushed stones, bricks, concrete sand and some of the unskilled labour.  With the help of EduDeo Ministries, the Secondary school facilities now include four classrooms, four offices and a staff room.
