ademy was established on July 20, 1931 by four young men all under the age of 30, G.N Alema 29, J.A Halm Addo 29, K.G Konuah 27, and S.N Awuletey 26.
Accra Academy was started in a building donated by Madam Ellen Buckle in the slums of James Town purposely for brilliant but needy students who couldn’t afford the Mfanstipims, Achimotas, Adisadels and the like.
The four young gentlemen were the first to establish a secondary school in Ghana as all the earlier schools were either established by the colonial government or missionaries.
The school has come a long way after 82 years and has produced a Head of State, back-to-back Speakers of Parliament, back-to-back Chief Justices, as well as host of ministers, doctors, engineers, ambassadors as well as entrepreneurs.
