We are glad to welcome you to the Federal Government Girls College Akure's website.
At FGGC Akure, academic excellence is our watchword. We put character first as the cornerstone to building intellectually sound, globally competitive and morally upright learners. We encourage our girls to inculcate those worthwhile values that will enable them to become leaders and shapers of history, women of honour and great problem solvers. From the point of entry through graduation, every child is exposed to a first-rate knowledge-driven environment, characterized by highly skilled teaching and non-teaching staff operating with a rich and all-inclusive curriculum to enhance the academic and overall development of learners.
Federal Government Girls College Akure is a co-educational day and boarding, basic and post-basic institution owned by the Federal Ministry of Education.
The College over the years has been in the forefront of academic excellence within the geographical region and across Nigeria as a whole. An outstanding performance in various Educational, Social and Sporting activities cannot be farfetched. This is as a result of an enabling learning and sporting environment existing in the school, with the existence of modern features such as; a Standard library, School media/ICT laboratory, Multipurpose hall, Tuck shops, Standard Football pitch, Badminton, Volleyball court, and Lawn tennis facility. A good and secured housing plan in form of dormitories/hostels is in place to accommodate the boarding students, under the supervision of caring and experienced housemasters and mistresses.
Our History is therefore incomplete without our past Principals and vice principals of the school up to date. Making our graduates continually being distinguished through the benchmark they make in different sectors and strata of the economy within and outside the country; including careers in business, engineering, law, medicine, arts, and the media.
