Course Name : General Science

The study of Science and Technology is vital, primordial and crucial precursors for rapid sustained national development in a globalized modern society. In tandem with the vision of the Founding Fathers of ‘The Academy’ the General Science Department was established as far back in the 1930s and has since been training top-class scientists for leadership positions in Science and Technology as practitioners in industry and Senior faculty in academia globally. The department has undergone a myriad of transformations in its course content, coverage and scope- from General Science, Health Science, Core Science and Integrated Science as compulsory subjects for learners over the years. In furtherance of the laudable dream to excel, elective subjects taught till today are Biology, Chemistry and Physics across space and time spanning the various educational reform dispensations- 5-year GCE O’ Level and 2 -year A’ Level, 3-year SSCE, 4/3-year SHS, the latter which runs today.

The General Science Department of Accra Academy has trained both male and female Science professionals and continues to train young boys into formidable specialists in Life and Bio- Sciences like Medicine, Pharmacy, Physiology, Microbiology, Virology and Surgery. Equally, a number of old students are veterans and authorities in Physical Sciences, including Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Computer Science, Engineering, Security, Meteorology, Astronomy, Aerospace industry, Criminology, Forensics and many others in wider field of science. Today, the Department has about 30 experienced and result-oriented staffs with a wide range of academic and professional credentials and in all frankness, the highest holders of postgraduate qualifications. The General Science Department is undoubtedly a harmonious and peaceful place in the school, for God Himself is our head and all staff stewards in His courtyard. The department has six laboratories for Biology, Chemistry and Physics recently refurbished and re-equipped for cutting-edge Science practical lessons and basic research. To your excellencies BLEOOBII, we remain eternally indebted and our very least is to say, God bless you and keep you blameless unto the Great Day of Reckoning.
