4. BRIEF HISTORY OF INSTITUTION
In the early fifties there were only three Senior High Schools in Ashanti Region. One of the schools was jointly owned by the Presbyterian and Methodist Missions while the other was established by the Catholic Mission. The third was privately owned Asante Collegiate which metamorphosed into Osei Kyeretwie Senior High School.
Due to the limited number of Senior High Schools in the region, boys and girls who wanted Secondary education had to travel to the Coast.
The Asante Youth Association at its meeting at K.O. Methodist School in 1952 therefore mooted the idea of establishing a Secondary School in the locality to reduce the risk and cost factors involved in seeking Secondary education down south. Members of AYA (made of young, energetic, bold and visionary men who at that time recognized the growing importance of Secondary education responded positively with the establishment of Asante Youth Association Day Secondary School in 1954. Members who contributed towards the construction of the school buildings included Messrs Kwame Adjei and
A.R. Boakye. The project was personally supervised by Mr. KSP Juantuah the then president of AYA. The first acting Headmaster, Mr K. S. P. Juantuah was appointed Ghana’s Ambassador to France that very year. Mr. J. Owusu Ofori therefore took over as the first substantive Headmaster in 1954 with additional responsibilities as the French and English tutor. Asante Youth Association Day Secondary School remained under the jurisdiction of A Y A until the 7th of June in the year of our Lord 1962. It was absorbed into the public system and “baptized” as Asanteman Secondary School. It was then confirmed by the 2007 Educational Reforms on Asanteman Senior High School.
