Luyanzi College has an educational experience of over 20 years derived from the former Progressive Secondary School Bweyogerere which started way back in 1988 with an idea of coaching ‘A’ Level students who wanted to make it to the prestigious Makerere University on government sponsorship. Due to the growing number, in 1990 the space at Mitchel hall could not hold, so it moved to Namirembe road in a commercial building for some time and later in the same year moved to Rubaga road and rented Aunt Mary Kagwa Nursery school premises.
In 1991, 12 acres of land was acquired in Bbuto Bweyogerere, 2.4 Kms off the Kampala-Jinja highway. In 1993, Progressive SSS had 600 boarding students (both ‘O’ Level and ‘A’ Level) under the stewardship of Mr. Jjuko as the first headteacher, meanwhile the Rubaga campus was still operating under the leadership of Mr. Lawrence Mukiibi the current proprietor of St. Lawrence Schools.
In 1997, Progressive SSS got a UNEB Center No. U0731 and among the best private secondary schools in terms of performance and structural setup.
On the 28th August 2009, Luyanzi Academic Foundation Ltd (LAFL) acquired the land and properties of Progressive SSS from Barclays Bank and on the 21 st May 2010 Luyanzi Academic Foundation Limited took over the school.
On the 30th June 2010, Luyanzi College, Bweyogerere Campus was registered by the Ministry of Education and Sports as a boarding and partly day school for girls and boys offering both ‘O’ and ‘A’ Level classes. UNEB Center No. U0731. Therefore, a new management structure and better maintenance of the college was put in place to its current smart outlook and good academic performance. The college now is being headed by a Headteacher Mr. Kyanzi Joseph a re-known educationist and a Social Anthropologist.
The college is managed by a Board of Governors headed by very senior and experienced educationists. It is chaired by Br. Joseph Tinkasimire of Kisubi Brothers of Christian Instruction and deputized by Hajj Swaibu Mbaziira, the Headmaster of Lubiri SS.
