Marist Preparatory/JHS, Sabin Akrofrom


The establishment of Marist Preparatory/Junior High School was the brainchild of Rev. Bro. Hyacinth Okoro. The idea received the blessing of the then Sector Superior Rev. Bro. Andrew Iwuagwu, who charged Rev. Bro. Daniel Osei Kwadwo to put things in place for the takeoff of the school.

The school was started on 15th September, 1997 in a small hall built by the Marist Brothers’ Formation Centre, Sabin - Akrofrom. The hall was partitioned in order to get rooms for the eighty pupils in the nursery, kindergarten and primary one classes.

In 1999 the primary classroom block was built.

After about four years Bro. Daniel Osei Kwadwo was relieved by the late Rev. Bro. Joseph Owusu Afriyie who worked tirelessly to get the junior high school classroom, the administration and ICT blocks constructed.


Marist Preparatory/Junior High School exists to build a Christ-centred learning community committed to academic excellence and moral values that prepare children and young people to become good Christians and good citizens.


Marist Preparatory/Junior High School seeks to become one of the top performing basic schools in Ghana that combines academic excellence with high moral standards grounded in faith formation in a conductive learning environment.
