Kumasi Academy

Kumasi Academy is one of the top senior high schools in Ghana noted for their excellent performances in both internal and external examinations and this birth their nickname, the academicians.

In 1954, a group of American Baptist Missionaries acquired land at Asokore Mampong. They used the land to establish a seminary, then a secondary school and the rest as they say is history.

Started in 1957, the year of Ghana’s independence – Kumasi Academy Secondary School, then called Sadler Baptist School was formed as a seminary. In 1960, they separated the seminary from the secondary school.

The seminary was then moved from Asokore-Mampong to Abuakwa, leaving the secondary school at its present location in Asokore-Mampong. Apparently, with time and several enrollments, the school gained some popularity which caught the attention of the then government.

The government wanted to have a “say” in the administration of the school. The Baptist founders of the school who were great believers of “let’s separate church and the state” initially found it difficult to accept such an offer.

They gave it a thought and came to a conclusion; is ideal we separate the church from the state but there can be some compromise.

So, they later thought it wise to hand over the affairs of the school to governmental control but on two conditions;

  1. the government can change the name of the school, but
  2. religious matters in the school should be managed and controlled by the Baptist mission.

Against the backdrop of these two conditions, the government accepted the offer. The name of the school was changed to Asokore Mampong Secondary School in 1964  and later in 1966, it was renamed Kumasi Academy.
