Mbozi Secondary School
The Mbozi Secondary School, located on the beautiful countryside of Mbozi, is one of the oldest private schools in the Mbeya region. It offers courses in all levels (Forms 1-6).

Moravian Teachers Training College
After the state launched the campaign “one school for each village” in 2000, a lot of schools have been built. Unfortunately, the number of teachers could not respond to the demand. There was a significant increase in the demand for qualified teachers. In response to this need, the Teachers’ College of the Moravian Church was opened in Mbeya city in 2009.
