To provide access and affordable quality education to the marginalized and deprived rural pupils who would have otherwise been deprived of secondary school education due to high level of poverty.


The school is aimed at providing a secondary and Technical school course for the award of West African Secondary School Certificate Examination (WASSCE). A firm foundation is laid for acquisition of knowledge, skills and attitude, first, for practical life and, second, for pursuing courses in any tertiary institution (University, poly techniques, colleges, etc.


The school crest consists of a Book, Hoe and a Deer on to of an Elephant.

The Book signifies a store of knowledge that the youths must identify themselves with, the Hoe reminds the students of a common traditional tool that serves as souses of wealth and food to the rural poor and the Deer standing on the back of an Elephant, explains that even though the elephant is a huge animal, it is ruled by the Deer, which is quite a small animal compared to the size of the Elephant. This demonstrates that it is not in all things that size is paramount.

The Crest is supported by the motto of the school as “BE THE BEST OF YOURSELF”.
