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 categorization.
