St. Augustine’s College, Cape Coast

Our Vision & Mission
Contrary to popular belief, Lorem Ipsum is not simply random text. It has roots in a piece of classical Latin literature from 45 BC, making it over 2000 years old. Richard McClintock, a Latin professor at Hampden-Sydney College in Virginia, looked up one of the more obscure.

Who We Are
St. Augustine’s College is an all-male boarding academic institution in Cape Coast, Ghana. The school started at Amissano, a village near Elmina, in 1930. The Roman Catholic institution was established to serve as a training college and seminary. The school was named after St. Augustine of Hippo (354 – 430 AD). The motto of the college is Omnia Vincit Labor, meaning “Perseverance conquers All”. The school has a total of 11 houses.

Our History
On 6 August 1933, the Roman Catholic Church and the Bishop of Cape Coast Vicariate Monsignor W. T. Porter felt the need to have a separate Roman Catholic school and Cape Coast was found to be the most suitable location. A commemorative foundation stone was laid in late 1935 at the present site. Fr. Maurice B. Kelly, the Dean of the Training College at Amissano which is now St. Teresa’s Seminary, Amisano, became the first Head Dean or Headmaster.

Our Culture
St. Augustine’s College, popularly known as “AUGUSCO”, calls its old students “APSUnians”. Due to the historical association and their common catholic antecedents, there is a tendency for Holy Child High School, Ghana old students (HOPSA) and St. Augustine’s old students (APSUnians) to get married. The church believes marriage between old students of the two schools will perpetuate the Catholic traditions.

Student Body
The students are among the highest performing in the WAEC exams. St. Augustine’s College are two time winners of the National Science and Mathematics Quiz. Winners in 2007 and 2019. In the 2007 edition of the National Science and Mathematics Quiz the college won, and two out of the school’s three contestants represented Ghana. Team three won the West African Science and Mathematics Quizzes.

Participation in inter schools competitions
The college won the finals of the 2019 edition of the Ghana National Science and Maths Quiz. This was the second time the college had emerged winners of the competition, after having won it for the first time in 2007.
