This college is one of the 4 new Model Schools constructed by the state government to decongest public secondary schools in Ado Ekiti.
This model college will give pupils, who presently enjoy free education, access to more learning facilities including functional laboratories (chemistry, physics, biology, home economics, and others), an ICT centre, toilet facilities, and pipe-borne water.
Governor Fayemi has also approved the establishment of three new model colleges which would be located in Ikere, Odo-Oro and Ado-Ekiti. The Model College in Ado-Ekiti which is named after the Anglican Missionary, Late Rev Thomas Harding is designed to have 36 Classrooms and is to be located in the heart of the State Capital. The College is created as an alternative option for primary school pupils who would have attended the three mission schools recently returned to their original owners in Ado Ekiti by Government.
