List of Category C Schools in Ghana

Prior to the arrival of European immigrants, education in Ghana was largely informal and centered on apprenticeship. Ghana’s pre-independence name was the Gold Coast. The pre-colonial Gold Coast economy was based on subsistence farming, in which farm products were shared among households and members specialized in providing essential services.

However, when the Europeans and missionaries came to Ghana, they opened new frontiers in the area of education, and over the years, the Ghana education sector has greatly developed.
