PREPARATION OF STUDENTS FOR EXAMINATIONS
We are very mindful of our responsibilities and the fact that our students must succeed through the concerted efforts of all concerned: the College, the students, and the parents. Where necessary, the College and the PTA pay consultants to upgrade the knowledge of students. We make sure that all areas are well addressed and God continues to crown our efforts with success.
INTERNAL EXAMINATIONS AND PERIODIC TESTS
The Continuous Assessment system is operated as in the National Programme. There are three tests each term.
THE STINT REPORT
To enable teachers and parents monitor the progress of students closely, regular tests and examinations are conducted and two reports are sent to parents each term. The Stint Report is the total result of the two tests conducted during the first half of each term. Each student takes home a Stint Report every mid-term. End-of- Term Examinations.
The cummulative result of the two tests and the end-of-term examination form the end-of-term's report.
The End-of- Year Examination
This is the average of three terms' reports for the year.
THE COLLEGE SYLLABUS
The College uses the WAEC and NECO syllabi
There are open days (once in a term) for parents to come into the College, inspect the work of their wards and discuss any issue concerning their wards with either the Teachers, or with the Consultant Guidance Counsellor (Rev. V. O. Adedipe) who comes in at intervals to give talks, free of charge, to students and when necessary to both students and parents on such topics as Study Habits, Choice of Subjects, Career Guidance and other behavioral habits that would put the students on the right path. These steps help to build the confidence that parent have in the educational system of the College. This improved in 2003 to one-on-one talks with parents, intense guidance and counseling and tutorial groups. This has also produced positive results.
THE PRINCIPAL'S CHAT WITH EACH STUDENT AND HIS/HER PARENTS
During the first term of the JSS 3 and SS3, some weeks are set apart to invite parents to discuss the weaknesses and strengths of each child in the presence of the child concerned. We discuss and agree as to how we should work together to improve the weak, and encourage the strong areas in the academic life of the student The career of the student is also discussed during this meeting because SS3 students would be preparing for JAMB examinations during the year. The Vice-Principal, the Guidance Counsellor, and the Administrative Officer are usually present at such discussions.
CAREER GUIDANCE APTITUDE/PSYCHOLOGY TEST
At first, after the chat, our Consultant Guidance Counsellor (Rev. (Prof.) V. O. Adedipe) administers the Career Guidance Aptitude Test. Each student then sees the Vice-Principal and the Guidance Counsellor for further discussion and follow-up on the results of the Aptitude Test These steps help our students immensely in their choice of career and they fit well into their courses at the university.
In place of the external Guidance Counsellor, the College now makes use of its own Guidance Counsellor and other senior members of staff.
LOW STUDENT/TEACHER RATIO PER CLASS
Our founding fathers emphasized that the number of students per class must be low. We have therefore constantly made sure that our classes are not crowded: not more than 30 students in a class. The teacher is able to know each student by name, which makes supervision easy and thorough.
TEACHERS/STUDENT CLASS ATTENDANCE REGISTER
We keep a Teacher/Student Class Attendance Register. This enables us to see, at any given moment or at the end of the day, the teacher or student who did not attend class, the topic taught, the teacher who came late, and the teacher who came but did not teach.
Students are divided into tutorial groups (about 12 in each group) Each group is taken care of by one teacher. The teacher inspects the work of the students in their assignment books, and gives advice and help where necessary. This is done on Thursday afternoons on alternate weeks.
WORKSHOP FOR TEACHERS
In the early days of the College, the Rev. (Prof.) V. O. Adedipe gave lectures to teachers. Later on, teachers started to attend workshops, seminars and short courses in areas such as Computer Education. to upgrade their skills, personal knowledge, attitude to work, improved Teacher/Student relationships, etc. within and outside the College.
LABORATORIES AND WORKSHOPS
The College has four well-equipped laboratories for Biology Chemistry, Physics and Agricultural/Integrated Science respectively, including four preparatory rooms for WAEC and NECO Examining Bodies. Home Economics Workshop The Home Economics workshop is also well-equipped and approved by both WAEC and NECO Examining Bodies. Computer and Computer Room The College has a well-equipped computer room for practical training for students.
There is a well-equipped typing pool for training in typewriting.
THE COLLEGE LIBRARY
The College was gradually building up the library with books purchased by the College, the PTA and donation from private individuals but we were restricted by inadequate space. However we are now happy that a modern library is under construction, donated by the Oyediran/Morgan families who are members of All Saints' Church.
INSPECTIONS AND APPROVAL FOR EXTERNAL EXAMINATIONS

(i) Three Boreholes
(a) One borehole donated by an anonymous donor;
(b) One borehole donated by the British American Tobacco Nigeria (BATN) Foundation, at the instance of Chief Olu Akinkugbe, who is the Chairman of the organization.
(c) One borehole financed by the College itself through WATSAN
(ii) Additional Bus
In the 2002/2003 academic year it became necessary to have a bigger bus for the College as the student population had increased. A bigger bus was acquired by the College at a cost of N2.3million.
The College acquired the underlisted assets soon after moving to the permanent site:
(i) Three brand new Toyota Coaster buses.
Two of the buses were financed by the Equitorial Trust Bank just a few days before movement to the site in February, 2008 while the third was financed by WEMA Bank PIc soon after, in March, 2008
(ii) A brand new 20 KVA generator.
This was bought in March, 2008. It is presently the only source of power supply for the College. The College is yet to acquire its own transformer and be connected to the public grid.
The history of the College will not be complete without the mention of some illustrious members of the Church who, at one time or the other, served the College meritoriously on the Board of Governors, and are now deceased.
1. Chief E. O. Ojo
He served on the pioneer Board of Governors
2. Mr. Ademola Augustus Babalola
Mr. Babalola made immense contributions as Second Chairman of the Board of Governors of the College and Chairman of the Task Force for the construction of buildings on the permanent site of All Saints' College. He died in active service while still holding both positions.
3. Mr. M.A. Adesiyun
He was a member of the pioneer Board of Governors and a member of the Establishment Committee of the Board. He also rendered free legal services to the College on all occasions he was called upon.
May their gentle souls rest in perfect peace. (Amen).
