History of SASCO

Saint Augustine’s Seminary was founded in 1958 by His Lordship Most Rev. Dr. T. McGettrick of blessed memory for then Ogoja Diocese.

The land was leased in 1957 from eight families of Amechi Ezzangbo viz, the families of Nweke Agbo, Obere Nworie, Otuoku Ituma, Agbo Okpoto and Omah Uzoke. This twenty acre piece of land was rented at £14 per annum.

Our Core Values

Three legged Stool of SASCO formation: Academics — Our students are trained to be academic giants. This enables them to pass their examinations, internal and external. Discipline — Students are not trained just to pass exams, but to lead a good life worthy of emulation. The Seminary Code of Conduct is the Guide. Spiritual — And lastly our formation helps students to be in good communion with God through our liturgical activities. The absence of any leg leads to the eclipse of the remaining two and the subsequent collapse of the stool.
