Established in 1931, Accra Academy stands as a beacon of educational excellence in the heart of Ghana. Located in Bubuashie near Kaneshie in the Greater Accra Region, our non-denominational day and boarding boys’ school has a storied history of shaping young minds and leaving an indelible mark on the educational landscape.
Accra Academy’s journey began as the first private academy in the Gold Coast, driven by a noble mission to provide quality secondary education to those who aspired for it but lacked the financial means. In 1950, it attained the esteemed status of a Government-Assisted School, solidifying its reputation as a premier institution in Ghana’s educational fabric.
Our curriculum is diverse and comprehensive, encompassing courses in business, general science, general arts, agricultural science, and visual arts. Through rigorous academic pursuits, we lead our students on a path toward the West African Senior School Certificate, an accolade that opens doors to future successes.
At Accra Academy, our legacy is deeply intertwined with the pursuit of excellence. Our founders, including the visionary Kofi Konuah, dedicated themselves to offering opportunities to brilliant yet financially challenged students. While our admission process has evolved over time, our commitment to nurturing talent and potential remains unwavering.
Throughout our history, Accra Academy has earned accolades that mirror our commitment to excellence. We were ranked 8th among Africa’s top 100 high schools by Africa Almanac in 2003, a testament to the quality of education, student engagement, and the remarkable achievements of our alumni.
Our achievements stand as a testament to the impact of Accra Academy. We have proudly produced successive Chief Justices of Ghana, consecutive Ghanaian speakers of parliament, and even a head of state and deputy head of state in the same government.
