Message from Joseph Dzamasi in Ghana
Sonrise Christian High School is happy to announce that its best student for the academic year 2017, Aisha Adamu, has been admitted into the University of Health and Allied Sciences in the city of Ho. She will pursue her dream of becoming a medical doctor. Over 71% of Sonrise’s 2017 graduating class have qualified for admission into various post-secondary institutions. Nationally only 24.9% in 2017 qualified for admission to post-secondary institutions. We are proud of this batch of graduates as they ensured that Sonrise Christian High School remains consistent in terms of academic performance. We are also happy to announce the near completion of a new building on our campus, the Boatright Health Center.
