5 - 0 Lord, to Thee we dedicate Accra Academy. Esse Quam Videri, we say and Bleoo, Accra Aca.

THE SCHOOL MOTTO: Esse Quam Videri - translated as "To be, rather than to seem."




Welcome to Accra Academy Alumni Web site!!!!!      Esse Quam Videri - To be, rather than to seem.!!!!!                Accra Aca Bleooo!!!!!!!!


Reminiscing about the period of my life at Accra Academy always result in an inexplicably warm feelings of great achievement. It sure looks like only yesterday when I arrived at the prestigious school setting in August of 1968 and was assigned to Aglionby Hall – I hear the name of this student hall of residence has been changed, hopefully for reasons that are justifiable and warranted.

I remember fondly as a fresh man, the rituals one has to go through and the nickname that was bestowed upon me. I am sure my mates will also remember.

Accra Academy, I can say with the utmost confidence, afforded me such a solid foundation in terms of the discipline, work ethic, responsibility for one’s action and understanding that quality results always emanate from hard work, singleness of purpose and dedication.

I remember vividly the interest, dedication and concern exhibited by the teachers like Mr. Halm Addo, Mr. Quao, Monsieur Nesse during those early years; Mr. Aryeetey, Mr. Boye and Mr. Quartey-Papafio during the twilight years.

I always reminisce about the early years and the friends that I made. It is just unfortunate that circumstances have not allowed us to meet. I hope and pray that these friends are doing fine. Friends like Andy Annan, Adjin Sackey, Felix Ashong, Lawrence Alormene and Charles Ossom.

It is a thrill to be part of the exercise that aims to facilitate the gradual re-surfacing and regrouping of all the alumni everywhere. Thanks to modern technology, it is my hope and desire that through this medium we will be able to come together to form a fraternity to enhance our need to stay in touch and more importantly to gather all necessary resources, individually and collectively for the ultimate betterment of our alma mater.

I am sure, hoping this is not so presumptuous on my part, that we all hold true to the tenets of our motto – Esse quam videri. Wishing you all positive life, healthy family and strong community. I will always be an Academician.

Accra Aca … Bleooo!!!!!
