School compound


Welcome to the official website of Adisadel College in Cape Coast, Ghana. It is our hope that you enjoy your visit to this great educational institution.

As Adisadel College looks towards it's 100th birthday in 2010 it is worth noting that this institution has not only made itself felt but actually contributed its share to the development and progress of the nation in diverse ways.

Over the years, the School has turned out into the world a steady stream of keen, capable young men, filled with enthusiasm and dedicated to the service of the country and of mankind - men who have contributed and continue to contribute their quota to the enrichment of the life of the nation, in practically all fields of human endeavour. This can be attributed to the life-long preparations given to it's students through education.

In 1977, W. C. Tandoh rightly stated at the Speech and Prize Giving Day...

"Whatever a person decides to do in life demands preparation, the qualities of courage, zeal, dedication and devotion to duty. Each day is a new day that imposes on us new demands and new responsibilities; each dawn has to be faced with renewed vigour and determination. Our suitability for the challenges of each day rests on our sustained endeavours in the acquisition of knowledge and experience and on our preparedness to adapt and utilize them profitably to suit the varying circumstances of life..."


98th. Speech Day...


The 98th Speech and Prize-Giving and Founder's Day celebration was held on  Saturday and Sunday March 8th. & 9th. 2008. His Excellency, Alhaji Aliu Mahama, the Vice President was the Special Guest of Honour with Mr. Prince Kofi Amoabeng C.E.O. of Unique Financial Services as the Guest Speaker.

The 1983 year group of Santaclausians who were the main sponsors worked untiringly to provide the school with a cold store. A lot of painting, repair and maintenance works was undertaken to usher in the day in a grand style. The special awards instituted by the1988 year group of Santaclausians motivated not only the students but also the teachers towards academic excellence.

Adisadel Congratulates Hon. Alhaji Mahama...


Latest Honourary Santaclausian

n Saturday 8th of March, 2008, Adisadel College celebrated her 98th Speech and Prize-Giving day with all the pomp and pageantry. The college was privileged to have as her Special Guest of Honour the Vice-President of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Alhaji Aliu Mahama. The Vice President, besides delivering a thought-provoking, inspiring and heart touching speech, also came to the aid of the college by

  1. Donating an amount of Five thousand Ghana Cedis (GH¢ 5,000.00) towards the centenary building project

  2. Pledging the release of one school bus through the GETFUND secretariat to the college.

  3. Accepting to see to the construction of a 4-storey 8-unit block of flats for the teaching staff.

In March 2005, when Adisadel College recounted her achievements and contributions to national development during the 96th Speech and Prize-Giving Day Celebration, it became amply evident that, of the three arms of government in Ghana, two of them were headed by Adisadel products-Santaclausians

  1. Judiciary-Chief Justice George Kingsley Acquah

  2. Legislature- Rt. Hon. Ebenezer Begyina Sekyi-Hughes

The third arm, Executive, became part of Adisadel exploits when His Excellency, John Agyekum Kufuor, President of the Republic of Ghana graciously had the Honourary Santaclausian status conferred on him in his role as the Special Guest of Honour by the then Board Chairman, Mr. Hero Bhavnani.

In keeping with tradition, His Excellency, Alhaji Aliu Mahama was similarly decorated with the Honourary Santaclausian badge by the Board Chairman, Mr. Solomon Abam Quartey. The Vice-President accepted an invitation from the 1983 year group of Santaclausians who were the main sponsors of the 98th Speech and Prize-Giving day Celebration (twenty five years after leaving school) to be a member of their year group. Hurray!!!
