History

Our Lady & St Francis Catholic College (OSCCO), Osogbo is a co-educational school, under the Proprietorship of the Catholic Bishop of Osogbo Diocese. It was established by the old Oyo Diocese but taken over by Osogbo Diocese at its creation in May, 1995. Having secured the required approval from the Osun State Ministry of Education, the College officially opened for academic programmes in the 1993/94 Academic session with Chief P.A. Famoyin (JP) as its first Principal. The School was established to achieve moral and academic excellence, thereby providing qualitative secondary education opportunity for the increasing number of primary school pupils irrespective of sex, social, religious or ethnic affiliations; preparing the students for higher education, useful living and effective leadership roles in the society. 

Since 1996, the College has been graduating students with excellent performance so much that it ranks among the ten best Secondary Schools in Nigeria by performance in West African Senior School Certificate Examinations since 2002. It has equally won several laurels at various levels of different competitions. In 2009, the International Academy for the Gifted LTD/GTE certified the College as a viable Training Institution for Gifted Pupils as a result of its performance in the 2009 May/June WASSCE. More than that, it is a training ground for the average and ‘below-average’ students as well. The present Principal of the College is Revd Fr. Felix Olaniyan.
