First Star Academy had a humble beginning. It was started by a devoted Christian Mrs. Grace Awua as a Day Care Centre at her home on 11th January 1988, with an initial capital of ¢10,000.00.
The Centre was named “KIDIES DAY CARE CENTRE” to reflect the age of the children, ie. Three months to five years group.
Kidies Daycare grew steadily at the proprietress home. As the number of students increased, the proprietress built more classrooms behind the house to accommodate the children at the school.
Due to the proprietress vision and drive to provide the best Daycare Centre in the Tema Metropolis that instilled in the children the importance of God and the fun in education, the Day Care was mentioned as one of the best Daycares in the Greater Accra region in 1993.
After running the Daycare for some few years, parents expressed their wish for the Daycare to have a continuation school to avoid parents from sending their children elsewhere when their children turned 6 years and were ready for Primary school.
The management of the Daycare heeded to the calls of parents and decided to acquire a plot of land at community 12 to have the continuation school from Primary to JHS. A new name befitting the development of the school that is First Star Academy emerged.
The first block of the school that served as the Primary one and two classes, was completed in 1994 and occupied in the same year. The first block of classrooms now serves as the Kidies Department after the Kidies Daycare was relocated from the proprietress house.
Since its inception, First Star Academy has grown leaps and bounds to its current status of being one of the best schools in the Tema Metropolis. Over the years the school has won several awards such as the Ayekoo National Basic Schools Excellence Award, Tema Excellence Award and placing first in Environmental and Sanitation assessment to mention a few.
With some of the best, dedicated and well trained teachers you will find in the field, it does not come as a surprise to see First Star Academy rising to the highest heights.
