About us

Ave maria school

Is a co-education basic school located in Accra, Ghana. The school runs from Crèche to Junior High School with boarding house facilities.

The school was founded in 1982 by the late Mrs Mary Ama Kyem Antwi of blessed memory. She started the school initially with three children in the garage of her home but gradually, as the good name of the school spread, so did the number of the little ones grow.

After completing their early childhood education parents were having problems getting vacancies for their wards in the schools. To solve this problem Mrs Antwi decided to establish a primary school so that after completing the nursery here children could have easy and continuous access to primary education.

In January 2009, the boarding house was commissioned under the leadership of the Managing Director, Mr Michael Antwi. School bus services were also introduced to assist parents and carers who lived in surrounding communities enroll their children at the school. 

What started in the garage of Mrs Antwi’s house has now grown into a world-class educational institution nationally and internationally. Our ever-growing school community consists of learners from Nigeria, Togo, Sierra Leon, Liberia, Canada, the USA and the UK just to name a few.

Our core values


We believe that bringing up our students, as kind, compassionate humans, will only increase their overall value in society. Thus making them sought after wherever they find themselves in life.


We instill into our students a fundamental maxim of life; “The only way to successfully reach heights in life, is by raising others up”.


Our students are given leadership training skills which prepare them for future leadership roles. This is evident in our well-structured student leadership system. Ave Maria School provides the fundamentals of leadership for our student community.


We believe that the best form of leadership is service, but how can you serve others when you do not strive to bring out the best in you? It is with this mindset, that we keep our students on their toes, to continually be the best in all they do.


“A dream does not become reality through magic; it takes sweat, determination, and hard work.” This is what the students of Ave Maria School are noted for. Hard work! We nurture our young learners and empower them to work hard and break all difficult ground.



Our strict but friendly facilitators coupled with our zero-tolerance for indiscipline have made our students the best within our catchment area and even beyond when it comes to student self-discipline.
