St. Ann’s College is the successor to St. Ann’s Training Institute which was established in March 2000 in Kisii Town. The college is a private training institution and was started as a result of the growing demand for higher education in the area.
Although the college started as an Information Technology (IT) training centre, it was later expanded to offer other courses in 2007 in the areas of Mass Communication and Journalism, Business courses, Accounts and Early Childhood and Development Education (ECDE).
The College is FULLY REGISTERED under the Education Act (Cap. 211 laws of Kenya), by the Ministry of Higher Education, Science and Technology in 2009 vide certificate number MOHEST/PC/1201/2009.
Examinations done at the college come from both National and International reputable bodies such as KASNEB, KNEC, ABMA and LCM among others. All the examination bodies have established an Exam centre at the college. The college is currently seeking affiliations with local universities to provide degree courses.
Currently, the college has a number of satellite branches in and around the Kisii region. These branches offer a limited array of courses at certificate and Diploma Level.
The first graduation ceremony was held on Friday 19th December, 2008.
