About “ASASS”

Asanteman Secondary School is a second-cycle educational institution in Kumasi, the Ashanti Region of Ghana. 

Asanteman Senior High School was founded in 1954 for two basic reasons.

  1. To provide Day Secondary education to boys and girls who could not attend the traditional boarding schools in Kumasi. 
  2. In response to the growing demands for more second cycle institutions in Asante. 

Therefore, the school was established through the initiative of the Asante Youth Association(AYA) and named it AYA Secondary School in response to the clarion call by many for more schools in Kumasi.

On June 7, 1962, this co-educational day school was absorbed into the public system by the government and re-christened into Asanteman Secondary School.
