Accra Academy

Accra Academy

Accra Academy is one of the leading secondary schools in Ghana. It is in Accra, on the Winneba Road, and was founded as a school which would provide good tuition at a reasonable cost to children from less fortunate homes whose parents could not afford the more prestigious schools like Achimota, Mfantsipim and Adisadel. The founders were Dr. K. G. Konuah, G.N. Alema (BA, Oxon.), S.N. Awuletey (inter BA, Durham) and J.A. Halm-Addo. Accra Academy was officially opened on 20th July, 1931. The school started with a school population of 19 in forms one to three. These included A.K. Konuah (later Headmaster), C.S. Duah (later a member of the teaching staff), R.Q.E. Blankson (later Town Engineer, Accra Municipal Council) and F.G.Torto (later Professor of Chemistry at the University of Ghana, Legon)
