Akim Asafo Senior High School is situated in the East Akim Municipality of the Eastern Region on the major Accra - Kumasi road, just about twenty minutes’ drive from Suhum.The school is named after the historical town 'Akyem Asafo' which is located on the Asafo-Maase Feeder Road 11 Km from Kukurantumi and 8 km from Apedwa junction.

The School was established as a community school on 18th February 1991, under its first headmaster Mr. Kyere Alexander Kofi. The school started at the present Methodist JHS premises with seven (7) students. The first student enrolled in the school was Master Karim Ibrahim. Later the school was moved to its present site in1994.

In 1996 some Baptist Missionaries from America visited the school and decided to adopt it. As part of an arrangement, the name of the school was changed to Akim Asafo St. Paul’s Community Secondary School(ASPACSS). The school however lost contact with the Missionaries. The previous Government decided to rename all the Secondary Schools as Senior High Schools, hence the name of the school metamorphosed to Akim Asafo Senior High School.

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.
