Nana Kwakye Tutu founded Agogo State Senior High School in 1963, however it is more commonly referred to as Agogo State College. Agogo State Senior High School is a private college. At first, it was held in a temporary location, and there were 24 day scholars and 4 scholars who lived at the hostel.
The Presbyterian Church expressed an interest in becoming a part of the school’s founding, and the institution was intended to serve as a laboratory for exploring how the State and the Church may work together.
The Omanhene of Agogo Traditional Area at the time, Nana Kwaku Duah, played a very vital part in the establishment of the school and also gave enormous acreage of land on which the school is currently situated.
The school enjoys a particularly picturesque setting thanks to its favourable location on top of a hill, which is surrounded by lush vegetation and colourful flowers. The breeze from the land is extremely wonderful. Students are consequently encouraged to make the most of this calm environment in order to put in significant study time.

The school Motto is inscribed beneath the Crest in Latin “Domini Nisi Frustra” which translates as “With God nothing is impossible”. This extract from Mark 10 vs 27 refers to the Omnipotence of God in all human undertakings. Conscious efforts are therefore made to imbibe in the students the strong belief in God. With God problems and challenges can be surmounted.
