Abetifi Secondary was formed and managed by Abetifi citizens, as the first Secondary School to be established on the Kwahu Ridge on 6th February, 1956, with about fifty (50) students and two (2) teachers. It started as a private co-educational institution.

In 1963, it became necessary for the school to enter into partnership with the Presbyterian Church of Ghana for the Administration of the school.The school was therefore renamed Abetifi Presbyterian Secondary School (APSEC).

In 1965, the then Government of the country took over the school.In 1978 the school which was initially housed in a temporary building in the heart of the town moved to its present site.The first Headmaster was Mr. Odoi Sykes 1956.

The vision of the school is to implement the pre-tertiary aspect of the goals of the Ministry of Education in such a way as to achieve high quality education and training that could improve the manpower needs of the country.

New pupils are admitted in September every year through a computerized system under the control of the Ghana Education Service. The system works based on the results of an entry examination known as the Basic Education Certificate Examination (B.E.C.E). This examination is held for junior high schools at various centres throughout the country. Entry Forms for the above examination are obtained from the West African Examination Council (W.A.E.C) through the headteachers of the respective junior high schools within the country. Once the computerised selection process is completed, the list of admitted students are made available by the Ghana Education Service to the school. The list is then made public through the school’s notice board.

An opportunity is given to foreign nationals wish to apply for admission into the school through a written entrance examination organised by the school.

After a student gains admission, he is given the school's official prospectus. This book helps new students about the school and all that is required of them.
