A Decade a ago, a group of academics, in a quest to popularise the idea of social service, set up a non-profit making organization intended to establish a boarding secondary school at Shika, near to the new Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital. About four years later, this group, with the assistance of other public-spirited individuals made a donation with which a site was acquired. It took roughly five years for the group to get 70,000 cement blocks moulded. This was enough to construct the basic facilities, including the perimeter wall. These efforts encouraged more people and organizations to make donations, and construction was able to begin. The construction was and is being handled by a competent contractor. Sometime later the search began for a competent principal who would be able to set the Intellectual tone for the school. This search ended, mercifully, in our own backyard, at the Kaduna State Polytechnic, where Mr. Malcom F. Forsyth was discovered and employed. His resourcefulness is responsible fed a hitch-free preparation for the initial and supplementary entrance examinations, which were conducted in six centres. Similarly, interviews were conducted smoothly and the results released without delay. At the same time, the principal organized the recruitment of teaching and non-teaching staff. We believe that we have a team that will encourage our students to learn. The Academy is now in its first half of the second decade. Our students have made history, and we trust that our standard will remain as high in the years to come. In the over twelve years(12) of our existence, Zaria Academy has been exposed to the national Junior secondary School Examinations conducted both by National Examination Council ( NECO) and WAEC. We have been recording over 95% pass in these public examination.
