Who We Are?

Our Story

St. Adelaide International Schools, formerly Lighthouse Christian Mission School, is the vision of the presiding Bishop of the United Denominations Originating from the Lighthouse Group of Churches (UD-OLGC), Bishop Dag Heward-Mills (http://www.daghewardmills.org). The school was started as a Nursery School with two pupils, about twenty-two years ago, at the South Odorkor division by Bishop Dag Heward-Mills’ wife, Episcopal Sister Adelaide Heward-Mills, under his guidance and leadership. By the grace of God, the School currently runs a Nursery, Primary and Secondary division on three separate campuses, with over five hundred pupils. At SAIS, we are uniquely committed to producing great intellectuals and professionals who know Christ and serve God in their generation. We also emphasize the holistic nurturing of the spirit, soul, and body of every learner who comes to us. The family atmosphere of SAIS provided by our dedicated teachers and aided by our small class sizes and sufficiently resourced campuses makes the learning experience effective and enjoyable. Together our faculty and staff of St. Adelaide offer a high-quality international educational experience. The main campus of the School is located in Sampa Valley. This campus houses the Primary division and Lower Secondary division, the east campus houses the Nursery division, and the west campus houses the Upper Secondary and Advance Level division. Our campuses are well-equipped and staffed with qualified, experienced, and caring teachers.
