St. Louis Senior High School is a Ghanaian educational institution for girls in the Oduom suburb of Kumasi in the Ashanti Region.
It is regarded as one of the best schools in Ashanti Region and the nation at large. St. Louis Senior High School is one of 7 Category A schools in the Ashanti Region.
In Ghana, just a few girls’ schools have the credibility to contend with their male counterparts, and even a handful are able to keep that status over the years.
The school has a lengthy tradition of distinction. St. Louis Secondary School has established a reputation for outstanding outcomes, notably in mathematics and science, over the years.

On 18 October 1947, the first St. Louis Sisters arrived in the country. They were to continue the running of an already-established elementary school, the St. Bernadette School, now popularly called ‘Roman Girls‘. True to character, the St. Louis Sisters, who never do things by the halves, decided to establish a new secondary school on the same compound.
St. Louis Secondary School first opened its doors in 1952, with a class of 12 females. Only a few of this group made it to the second group in 1953, which totaled 42. When the remaining group took their “O” Level Examination in December 1957, there were 11 of them.
The Sisters’ income, cash collected, and Diocesan contributions were mostly used to develop the compound and acquire necessary inputs.
The church desired that the Apostolate of Education focus on the critical job of developing strong and enlightened Christians capable of wielding significant influence in social and political matters. Perhaps no branch of education required greater attention than female education.
St. Louis Secondary School moved to its present site in 1960. The foundation stone was laid by the late Otumfuo Osei Agyemang Prempeh II, Asantehene, on 25th March 1960 (the feast of Annunciation) and was blessed by Rt. Rev. Andrew van den Bronk, the then Bishop of Kumasi.
The uniform of the school has been selected to match the colours of the school and reflect the mission of the St. Louis Sisters.
