The school was founded by Dr. Gabriel Amoateng-Boahen and his wife Mrs. Agatha Amoateng-Boahen who is currently acting as proprietress of the school. The aim of establishing the school was to provide affordable and accessible holistic education for the deprived children, especially those living within Daban and the surrounding townships like Sokoban, Ampeyoo, Krofrom, Asagoe, Ampabame, Kronkomase, Atasomanso and many more. These communities are all located on the outskirts of Kumasi City in Ghana. The school is duely registered with the appropriate authorities. The school was originally known as Maranatha International School. With changes in time, the school also changed its name to Young Apostles International School to reflect the founder’s vision. Despite the new name, the community still referred to the school as Maranatha to the extent that the area where the school is located is called Maranatha junction. This affirms the school’s popularity within the community. In view of this and various requests from the community including the royal family of Daban, the school’s authorities have decided to name the school, Maranatha Young Apostles International School (MYAIS). And all the necessary documents to this effect this has been duly applied to the appropriate institutions. The school’s community reflects the diversity of the Ghanaian society, with families of different ethnic and religious background but predominately Christians and low economic background.
