Overview: The idea of a high school began in 2013 with Mr. Prince Obiri-Mainoo, a resident of the beautiful city of Worcester, Massachusetts. This was at the time when he was a teacher at the Harvard University's African Language Program and had gone to Ghana, his country of birth to explore possibilities of establishing a high school there. He had the support of some individuals, particularly, Drs. Emmanuel Awuah and Samuel K. Kyeremeh who had been on the board of the National Africa Foundation (NAF) for several years and had been thinking together with him about what NAF could offer in Ghana and Africa generally.
Based on his expertise as education technologist, and coupled with the fact that the cost of building and other necessary resources was so prohibitive everywhere in Kumasi and Accra, the two cities earmarked for the school project, Mr. Obiri-Mainoo approached the Ministry of Education (MOE) to find out if he could register an online high school as an alternative. He got the nod from the director of secondary education at the MOE who explained that, though there was no such school in Ghana, an online school would definitely be registered, provided it would first be registered with the Registrar General's Department (RGD). So in June 2014 the registration of NACOHS with both RGD and MOE was completed.
Vision: To prepare and produce students who would be upright in character and be able to pursue advanced academic and professional careers and contribute towards the development of Ghana and Africa in general.
Mission: To deliver high quality, affordable, and relevant 21st Century high school education to prepare students for university (tertiary) education and qualified professionals for the health and business sectors of the Ghanaian economy and Africa at large.
