Adonten Senior High School recognizes and respects the uniqueness of each student. Adonten Senior High School was started as a private senior high school at Aburi - Akuapem on 10th January 1957 by Mr. Moses Agyare Kwabi.
From 1957 to September 1963 the school was run and organized by the proprietor, who was then the part-time Headmaster and General Manager. However, on 1st October 1963, the Ministry of Education absorbed Adonten Secondary School into the public system as a day secondary school with hostel attached.
At the beginning of the 1972/73 academic year, the government fully took over the running of the school... Students learn to follow their curiosity, to think creatively, and to work both independently and cooperatively with others.

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.
