Current position of the school

St Monica’s Cape Coast, is made up of Kindergarten, Primary and Junior High School (JHS). The JHS is headed by Dr Vivian Sabah who took over from Philomena Forson on 14th April 2023. The deputy is Jemima Acquah-Dadzie. The Kindergarten and the Primary section is headed by Victoria Kwenin. She is deputise by Elizabeth Otopia and Gifty Sofoa.

The kindergarten and Primary school, currently has two streams with an average of 45-65 pupils and a capacity of 642 four to twelve-year-olds. The Junior High School (JHS) has a capacity of 392 twelve to fifteen-year-olds. Students of JHS graduate to Senior High Schools in and around Cape Coast and other regions further afield, after taking the Basic Education Certificate Examinations (BECE) and undergoing a selection process.

St. Monica’s Cape Coast was graded the First Public school in BECE in 2016 with 117 students. It has a very good academic reputation and also excels in zonal level sports particularly in volley ball, netball, football and interschool athletics.

Due to large enrolments the old school block is being occupied by the primary division. In terms of facilities the entire old building needs refurbishment. The primary school with the junior high school moved to a new building with nine additional classrooms occupied by JHS with the average of 45-65 pupils in a class.

The school currently lack resources such as Teaching and Learning Materials (TLM) to enhance learning and teaching. It needs a convenience facility, a school canteen and a better recreational area.

As a public school, pupils and students do not pay fees but contribute 5 Cedis a year; as the government approved levy (PTA dues) to help pay the bills of the school.
