About Us


Providing an excellent, Christ-centered international education.

Haven of Peace Academy is a Christian school admitting students aged from 5 to 18+years. It is situated on a twelve acre campus overlooking the Indian Ocean in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Haven of Peace Academy was founded in 1994 by five missionary families who wanted to create a place where their children could receive academic and spiritual education in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. The school opened in Oyster Bay with 47 students and 4 teachers. Today, our school has grown to become a student body of more than 300 from over 30 nationalities. Our campus is now situated on a beautiful property in the Kunduchi Beach area.

From the start, Haven of Peace Academy has shared the blessing of high quality education within a Christian environment with Tanzanians and other expatriates. Whilst the children of missionaries have a priority for admission, other children are made welcome. Haven of Peace Academy provides spiritual, academic and physical development while emphasizing the importance of service and leadership.
