Mwangaza College Nakuru is a reputable tertiary educational institute in Nakuru Kenya. Mwangaza college is a middle level tertiary institution of the Catholic Diocese of Nakuru and managed by the Brothers of the Christian Schools (De La Salle Brothers). The college adheres to the philosophy that education is one of the fundamental ways by which the Church fulfills its commitment to the dignity of the person. A key responsibility is that of providing a positive environment that offers experiences which are both spiritual and academic, theoretical and practical for people to develop their unique talents and leadership potential. Mwangaza seeks to serve the community in presenting a challenging atmosphere towards the attainment of life preparatory through comprehensive training.

Mwangaza draws its uniqueness from the educational philosophy of St. John Baptist De La Salle which echoes the three interlocking dimensions of the Church’s mission: First and foremost education is ministry; one personal commitment to spiritual and vocational formation is a means of living a Christ-centered life. Secondly members of the Mwangaza community come together in an association based on a common acceptance of Gospel values and on a shared desire to foster these values in their lives of those they touch. Thirdly the experience of community leads to service.

A common vision shared by the Catholic Church and Mwangaza is the importance of religious instruction, vocational training and cultural development of those whom it serves. In the presence of God, Mwangaza strives to create a challenging atmosphere which stresses personal responsibility and mutual respect. The resulting community, with its diversity, proclaims this common vision: the Gospel of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
