Edo College, Benin City was established in February, 1937 and it is the oldest Secondary Grammar School in the then Mid-Western Region. It started as the Benin Middle School with forms I, II, and III. In April 1937, the school, with a total student enrolment of 76 pupils, moved from its temporary site at the old Government School, Benin City to a permanent site, the present Idia college premises. In 1973, the school further moved from Idia College premises to its present site along Murtala Mohammed Way, Benin City.
With the Government take-over of schools in the state in 1973, the management of the College went from the direct control of the Ministry of Education to the Board of Education with particular reference to the appointment and development of staff to the school.
The specific aims and objectives of the college have always been:
(I)To provide students of the college with the opportunity for education of a high quality.
(II)To prepare them both for useful living within the society and of higher education elsewhere.
(III)To inculcate in them high moral spiritual values in interpersonal and human relations.
(IV) To promote and develop their emotional, physical and psychological health.
(V)To inculcate national consciousness in them.
(VI)To help them to utilize their leisure well through teachings of Nigeria culture, art and language as well as the world’s cultural heritage.
In life, one is usually faced with varying situations. Many of these changing experience such as the one we are facing in Edo college today are often challenging. Being at the helms of affairs, makes me see myself on a mission and this has given me a vision.In a nutshell, it is a vision to make Edo College an academic citadel par excellence, whose graduates are detribalized, who are spiritually, physically, intellectually and socialized developed to face the challenges of the modern world.Our hope is to create an academic environment that is challenging and rigorous. It is our hope to challenge our students to stretch themselves beyond the ordinary both in curricular and co-curricular activities. We will set goals that are both high and real. We shall strive to monitor progress in every facet of the student’s program to see that they are working to the best of their abilities.Not only do we want the students to discover their talents and to develop them, but also to use them in the service of humanity.We believe that parental, legal guardians and other interest groups’ involvement are essential in the overall development of the school. So, we intent to integrate all in fostering high academic excellence of the school.Ideally, Edo College should be a place where people are believed in, honoured and cared for, where the natural talents and creative abilities of persons are recognized and celebrated; where individual contributions and accomplishments are appreciated
