Central High International School is the brain child of late Mrs. Sakker Sacranie.  She convinced the then Head of State Dr. Kamuzu Banda and other prominent members of the community about the need for an international  school  with a motto of quality education at affordable  fees. Classes were initially held in big houses at different places and moved to the current location with all its infrastructure in the year 1968.

At the very outset the institution was registered with the University of Cambridge Examinations. The test of time has been admirably withstood and a vision has been fulfilled. We are a fully fledged international school whose students are taught and entered as candidates with Cambridge International Examinations at Checkpoint level, IGCSE, AS and A level for a full range of subjects.


Within the School Community, we aim to help each students to achieve his or her potential to the full. To prepare students for life in the ever-changing world of the 21st century, the school promoted those values that will enable them to be life long learners.


Students are encouraged to develop an approach to learning in which they increasingly achieve independent. The school provides a range of learning opportunities, as well as guidance and support in exploiting these, but students should be able to take advantage of these opportunities using their own initiative.

We believe that Education is the right of all young people. The Learning environment we offer at Central High International School is privilege.
