ABOUT ACCRA ACADEMY

The prospects of new way of ‘respectable living’ and of social advancement held out by education created in the country’s youth a thirst for knowledge that remained strong and insatiable in the later part of the nineteen century. However, educational facilities at the time could not match the youth’s enthusiasm for school. If elementary school education were grossly inadequate, those for secondary education were virtually non-existent, and nearly all ambitious young men who wanted higher education went to overseas or Sierra Leone. It was to satisfy the urgent need for a secondary school that would provide good tuition at reasonable cost to the non-affluent sector of Accra and its environs that four young men all below thirty years of age established the Accra Academy.
