A Brief Calvary Science School History

An application was made on the 4th of June 1982 for the establishment of Calvary Nursery School and approval was granted on the 5th of November 1982. Miss Julie Owusu Ansah was the first headmistress. The School’s first temporary location was in Rock Haven Layout, located towards the Utan area along Zaria Road, in Jos, Plateau State.

The first school makeshift premises was located in a servant’s quarter in a rented accommodation on plot No BP 2228/27. A letter of authority was given by the property owner Major Julius Akinwande and the occupant (Tenant) of the property Engineer O, C. Adiuku-Brown, as required by-relevant authorities, to ensure that the school approval was obtained.

A piece of land, PL6835 was later allocated for the development of the school by the Plateau State government in the Rock Haven New layout area, a government reserved area but with no infrastructural provision as at the time. With a first bank loan in 1986, it was possible to move the school to its permanent location, with Mrs Bassey Otti, as the headmistress and later George Agyapong became the headmaster after Mrs Otti moved to St John’s College and later to Baptist High School. Following the hardships of the late eighties and early nineties, such as fuel scarcity, the school was moved to yet another private but more accessible property on Utan road.


In 1992, The Calvary Science College was established in the Rock Haven New layout premises with late Joseph Salsie as principal. Access to the college remained a major problem so the college was moved to its present location in 1998, along with the nursery and primary schools. Subsequent school principals include Mrs Charity Mgbeafuluba, James Ogodo, and now Mrs Beatrice Akande.

The Motto of the school is education for National Development
