While speaking at the school's speech and prize giving day, Mr Yeboah said the directive was approved by the school's board due to inadequate accommodation facilities and the dissolution of one of the houses of the school, New House One.

According to Mr Kusi Yeboah, the school will continue to reject students until a solution to the infrastructure problems facing the school are addressed.

He added that the stakeholders of the school agreed the directive is necessary to maintain the school's standard of quality education it has been noted for over the years.

However, the minister for works and housing, Samuel Atta Akyea who was a special guest at the ceremony and also a former alum of the school stated, President Akufo-Addo had valid reasons for initiating the Free SHS policy regardless of the uncertainty of resources to support it.

"After all, it is the educated mind at every level that will ultimately drive GDP upwards," he said.

Mr Atta Akyea also commissioned a remodeled dining that was funded by the 1992 alum.

Meanwhile, Adisadel College is not the only school planning to reduce its admission intake in the next academic year, as Ghana National College, Wesley Girls High and Academy of Christ the King school have also said they will initiate such directives.
