History of Konadu Yiadom Catholic Senior High

With the realization of the importance of education to development and in order to assisting the youth in preparing adequately for their future lives, the Chiefs and Elders of Asamang deliberated on establishing a Secondary School (now Senior High School). This was to augment the Basic schools within the township and her catchment so that candidates who are able to make it through the BECE can obtain their secondary education without having to travel long distances to other schools outside which brought about financial burden on the parents.

When the Chiefs and Elders put this to the community, most of the citizenry agreed and in 1975, they commenced the establishment of the school. Through hard work and commitment, members of the community through communal labour begun to build the school’s infrastructure AT its current location (old site). In the same year it was absorbed into the Public system with Mr Ben Owusu becoming the School’s first Headmaster from 27th October, 1975 to 28th November, 1982.

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 also given to foreign nationals who wish to apply for admission into the school through a written entrance examination organised by the school.

Students from other senior high school or fresh senior high school starter who wishes to continue the education at the school can also contact the school's adminstration through the contact list provided in the contact section of this page.

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.
