Claret Academy Secondary Scool is a private educational institute established, organized and directly administered by the East Nigerian Province of the Religious Congregation of Missionaries, Sons of the Immaculate Heart of the Blessed Virgin Mary, otherwise known as the Claretian Missionaries. Claret Academy was formally opened in September 1998 as a nursery/primary school. The title "Claret Academy" was given to it because of the rapid growth of the school and the intended plan to develop it into secondary and tertiary levels of education, perhaps with different campuses in several places.
The purpose of the school is to impart knowledge and education to minors in the levels of pre-nursery, nursery, primary and secondary school.levels, as a contribution to the development effort of the Catholic Church and the Nigerian government in the formation of children and youth of the country and beyond.
Claret Academy Secondary School, which is the secondary arm of Claret Academy, started in 2004, and so far four sets of Senior Secondary School finalists have graduated from the school. Claret Academy Secondary School is the first among the secondary schools in the secondary arm of Claretian Educational Project. Our school brings to practical realization the basic rights that the Constitution of the Federal Republic of Nigeria grants to all natural or artificial persons to found Educational Centers, within the constitutional provisions and principles.
