Nova Pioneer provides students with opportunities beyond the classroom to nurture their talents and abilities. We recently partnered with The True Talents of Africa Football Academy to offer professional football within our schools. The program provides students with different opportunities such as soccer scholarships.
This year, we are extremely proud of Peter Kolenyo from the Tatu Boys Class of 2021 who just committed to join Cardinal Stritch University on a 67% soccer scholarship.
Peter is a graduate of the True Talents of Africa Football Academy residential program at Nova Pioneer Boys where he excelled not only on the field but also off the field, scoring an A-in his KCSE Exam.

Peter made the decision after receiving various offers from several universities including Amherst University, Manor college, Irvine Valley, Whatcom University and others.
Cardinal Stritch is one of the most consistent NAIA(National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics) Men’s soccer programs in the United States having qualified in the NAIA National Tournaments in 4 out of the past 6 years.
We are extremely proud of him and we wish him well in his journey! He is set to travel to the US in August and is currently training with the TTA Football Academy’s Under 21 team. He joins the list of Nova Pioneer TTA Graduates headed to the US this August on Soccer scholarships which includes Cedric Mucui, Kennedy Obanda and Derrick Onyango.
