Ghana National College

Average Ratings

It was founded on 20 July 1948, staffed by dismissed teachers from St Augustine's College and Mfantsipim School. The college was founded by the first Ghanaian President Kwame Nkrumah using his own funds, for eight students who had been expelled by the British colonial administration from St Augustine's College. The expulsion resulted from a protest march, held in solidarity with Nkrumah, who was then imprisoned. Ghana National College was established on Friday, 16 July 1948, in Cape Coast, during a period of agitation for self-government in the then Gold Coast. Ironically it was named Ghana National College nine years before The Gold Coast achieved independence in 1957, and the country was named Ghana.
