When do schools in Ghana re-open?

The key academic calendar dates for high schools in Ghana are usually only announced shortly before the school year begins.

The academic calendar is different for Ghana Senior High Schools, Ghana Junior High Schools, and Ghana Primary Schools.

For Senior High Schools, the calendar is even more complex: The academic calendar, thus the re-opening and semester recess calendar, in Ghana Senior High Schools depends on whether the selected Senior High School is a “Single Track SHS” or a “Double Track SHS”. For “Double Track SHS”, students can be on the “Gold Track” or the “Green Track”.

School opening periods for all types of Ghana High Schools are shown below.
