Wisdom International School came into existence when Kennedy Aboagye, a trained teacher living in Accra, was introduced to an area not too far from the city that lacked a single private school. Ken moved to the village of Kitase and immediately began work to benefit the children of that region. At first, he was handling all educational aspects of running a school and hired another teacher to handle the financial side of things. Ken started with just five students in his first class.
By 2004, the Wisdom Academy reached over 100 students. Over half of them pay a reduced tuition or none at all. The school added boarding accommodations, a nursery, secondary school grades through nine, and hosting space for several international volunteers. With 35 students sitting for the national examination and all of the students receiving placement in senior high school, the Wisdom Academy gained a positive reputation and enrollment took off.
Now the school has the following curriculum:
