Ofori Panin Secondary School was established by the Ghana Education Trust (G.E.T.) of the Nkrumah government on 22nd September, 1961. The land for the school was provided by Nana Kena, chief of Kukurantumi and Adontenhene of Akim Abuakwa who later became Ghana's High Commissioner to India. The founding fathers christened it Tafo-Kukurantumi Secondary School; Takusec. The school's name was changed to Ofori Panin Secondary School (OPASS) in 1962, in memory of Nana Ofori Panin, the great Akim Abuakwa chief who led his people down from the Adansi land to the present site.
