4. BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SCHOOL
Adventist Senior High School then known as Adventist Day Secondary School was founded by the S.D.A churches in Kumasi in 1983 with 80 students grouped into two classes. It operated as a private mission school until 1994 when it was abs9orbed into the public school system. In 2003, the boys dormitory was put up to meet the needs of those boys who wanted to live in the school. This called for the deletion of the word ‘day’ from the name of the school to reflect it new status. There are plans afoot for the construction of a girl’s dormitory. The school offer courses in the following programs. General Science, General Arts, Visual Arts, Business Studies and Home Economics
