Educational aspirations are linked to
academic achievement at all school levels. Educational
aspirations among secondary school students are formed
and developed not only in the school social environment,
but also in the out of school social environment. At the
secondary school level, individual educational
aspirations are a major determinant of progressive
academic achievement and career choices. However,
educational aspirations formation is a social process.
This paper developed a social interaction model or
framework that can enhance acquisition of social capital
necessary for educational aspiration formation in Kenya.
The study recommends the need to put in place formal
programs at home, school and the community for day
secondary schools, which could go a long way in bridging
the resource disparities entrenched in the school
