5th: Top Senior High Schools In Ghana For 2017

5. Adisadel College (Adisco) – Cape Coast


Adisadel was founded on January 4th, 1910 by the Society for the Propagation of the Gospel (S.P.G.). The school was then named SPG Grammar School.

In 1924 the name was changed to St Nicholas Grammar School. When the school was relocated to its present location in early 1936 from downtown Cape Coast, it assumed its current name-Adisadel College.



There are ten dormitories that serve as student housing.



Most of the student housing have housed family generations that passed through Adisadel, thus generating a loyalty unmatched on any Ghanaian secondary school.

The headmaster's residence, which is located on the highest point of the Adisadel Hill is affectionately known as the "Acropolis". 

It is linked by a narrow corridor, known as "The Appian Way", which runs parallel to the chapel. 

The Acropolis offers a stunning panoramic view of the Cape Coast township and Adisadel village, including the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding suburbs. Students are forbidden from loitering around this area of campus. 

The fringes of Mfantsipim School are also visible from this high point.
