There are a number of private senior High schools in Ghana providing secondary education to students from different backgrounds. But this article only looks at the Top 10 private senior high schools in Ghana you can attend or send your ward to.
There is this notion alot of Ghanaians have about private senior high schools that has to be changed. In the minds of many Ghanaians, it is only those who fail their Basic Education Certificate Exams who apply to such schools hence are seen as not so bright by some section of Ghanaians.
Another perspective also is that such schools are for the rich because of the relatively higher tuition fees that are charged in these schools. However, all these perceptions are not entirely true as admissions to these private schools are open to all, provided you meet their entry requirements.
But the introduction of the Free SHS program in 2017 sort of threatened their existence to a large extent. However, the numbers seem to be increasing again which is good for them and the government as well. NB: not everyone can attend the public senior high schools! Not because you are not bright or something but the public schools is just not enough to admit all the BECE graduates.
