  1. VISION

To aspire to be the best institution in Ghana that would give an all round education to form and train young men to be morally upright, academic giants and to build confidence in themselves to face the future with hope.

  1. MISSION

To create an atmosphere that would ensure the provision of quality formal education through effective teaching and character transformation to young boys for true service to God and the society.

  1. BRIEF HISTORY OF INSTITUTION

St. Charles Minor Seminary was first opened in 1953 at Wiaga in the Builsa District of the Upper East Region, by the Missionary of Africa (White Fathers). It was later moved to Tamale in 1955 where it is now situated. The school was moved to Tamale in 1955 perhaps because of its strategic and central position as the administrative capital of the north. In Wiaga, the school started with 12 students as a pinion class, and 8 in the second batch, and the third batch of 21 students were moved to Tamale.  The forth batch which was made up of 29 was reduced to 15 students by the end of the year, 14 of them having been withdrawn for various reasons. Not until the late 90s when things became very difficult for the school to be continuously sustained by the church single handedly; that a decision of going into partnership with government which eventually resulted to the absorption of the school by the government in 2001.

STATUS OF INSTITUTION: Boarding
