Liberty American School (formerly LAS Liberty School) is a non-denominational, private, co-ed, day and boarding American Christian school founded on the three core values of Christ, Community, and Excellence.
It services students ages 3 months through 18 years. It is located in East Legon, in the Greater Accra region of Ghana in West Africa.
It is governed by a Board of Directors, and administered by a sole principal who also serves as head of school.
Liberty American School was founded in 2012 and opened on August 14th, 2013. The vision for the school began in 2012 with families seeing the need for a strong, independent Christian school in the East Legon suburb of Accra. The desire of the founder was to bring strong academic, high-quality, Christian teaching, operating in a well-informed and progressive environment and developing the individual child. Inspired by this vision, Mrs. Cynthia Agyepong, School Founder and Executive Director, took prudent steps to open the doors of LAS.
LAS is an abbreviation of Liberty American School as well as being an acronym for Live Above Standard, which is our expectation of all within our school.
A new building was constructed and purpose built for the school, located just 2 minutes from American Houses - East Legon. It houses the full school- from Crèche to Grade 12.
Currently LAS holds an award from West Africa International Press for being one of the top 10 private schools in Ghana, an award from African Leadership Magazine for African Academic Leadership Excellence, and an appreciation award from the first annual African Prestige Awards. It is quickly becoming known for education reform and innovation on a global scale.
