Category A schools in Ghana are considered the top senior high schools and few schools move up into this category each year. WASSCE academic performance, school achievements, infrastructure, population, and facilities are among the major ranking criteria used by the Computerized School Selection and Placement System (CSSPS) and the Ghana Education Service (GES) to rank Senior High Schools in Ghana.
Junior high school graduates and parents desire their children to enter Ghana’s top senior high schools. If you’re reading this, I’m guessing you’re looking for a senior high school that’s right for you.
Keep in mind that prospective candidates for senior high schools in Ghana would have to choose from seven different categories of senior high schools: category A, B, C, D, E, F, and G.
Many candidates desire to attend government or public senior high schools, which are classified as A, B, C, and D. Private Senior High/ Technical Vocational Institutions are included in Categories F and G, while public Technical/ Vocational Institutions are listed in Category E.
The following is also important to remember:
- A candidate must select five (5) schools (1st to 5th choice).
- In each school of choice, a candidate must choose programs and accommodation (Day/Boarding).
- In order of preference, a candidate must list options 1 through 4.
- A candidate’s 5th fifth option must be a category D compulsory day school in a catchment region. This implies that compulsory day school choice is now restricted to candidates’ 5th choice.
- A candidate may choose four (4) schools from category C and one (1) from category D schools.
- A candidate may choose no more than two (2) schools from category B schools.
- A candidate may choose no more than one (1) school from category A schools.
- If a candidate wishes to pursue solely technical programs that candidate may select all 1st to 4th schools from category E and must still select the 5th choice from category D schools.
- A candidate must arrange your selected schools in order of preference.
