ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS FOR Archbishop Porters Polytechnic

Archbishop Porter Girls’ Polytechnic was started in a very humble way on the premises of St Mary’s Primary School, Cape Coast, by the Sisters of Our Lady of Apostles (OLA) in 1940 to provide training opportunities for teenage girls who for one reason or the other could not access secondary education.  The school was originally named St. Mary’s Vocational School and it provided young girls with appropriate skills in dressmaking and embroidery. This was in keeping with the primary aim of the OLA sisters to train young girls and women in practical and professional skills to make them employable and also earn decent livelihoods.
