The College was founded on the 14th of November, 1973 with a total student population of 80 and 10 tutorial staff. The pioneer class was form one, which was later followed by a lower six class in 1975. At inception, the college started with a few buildings some of which were inherited from Government College, Owerri. The inherited buildings were two laboratory blocks which house the Biology, Home Economics, Physics and Chemistry laboratories and four staff quarters, one of which was used as the administrative block.
It is important to mention that the outstanding milestone the College has been witnessing has not been without the contributions and efforts that individuals, groups, corporate bodies and government have always rendered to her. In this regard the supports of our host community, Old Girls, PTA, members of staff, the Imo State Government and the Federal Ministry of Education are quite appreciated. It should be put on record that your continued dedication and unflinching support to the college have helped to give her one good History: "Success". Over the years, the success of the college has been made manifest in the crop of successful and well-meaning individuals she has been producing.
