Citizens of Nigeria at home and in the diaspora always complained about the unsavoury state of affairs in the country, especially with regard to the poor system of education. Few Nigerians went beyond talking about the endemic corruption everywhere. Some citizens chose to leave the country for "greener pastures" or send their children abroad for sound education.
However, a group of visionary, God-fearing Nigerians decided to do something to solve the problem by establishing a school where Godly attributes, morals, cultural value and ethics would be taught to the students with academics. Thus the primary school – Straitgate Nursery/Primary was founded in 1998 as a place where a Godly generation would be built.
Having succeededed with the primary, they decided to establish Straitgate College in September 2004 as a continuation of a laudable vision of bringing up a crop of young Nigerians who would be made to see the reason why they must make a positive difference in the universe. On this note, we welcome you to navigate through this site to get yourself more acquainted with what we have to offer you as you decide to make your child/children one of the catalysts of change in this 21st century.
Straitgate College is under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Education,Science and Technology, Ogun State.
At maximum capacity , the school is capable of accommodating:
- 500 Students , all boarders.
- 45 teachers , 90% of who are resident in the school.
- 25 non-teaching staff, 50% of who are resident in the school.
The library opens to students from 7:40 a.m and closes at 9:30 p.m daily.
Straitgate College started at the premises of Straitgate Nursery and Primary School in Magodo GRA Lagos (a temporary site) in September, 2004. By September 2007, the College moved to her permanent site (an expanse of 68 acres) situated at km 82, Lagos-Ibadan Expressway, Isara-Remo, Ogun State.
According to the God-Given Vision, the College was founded to make a difference by structuring the curriculum in a way that high level academic activities are heavily spiced with ethics, values , morals and a total Christian life package.
Each child is made to imbibe and cultivate Christian Principles and Precepts such as a total belief in the Holy Bible; a knowledge and understanding of Christianity; development of a personal relationship with Jesus Christ; personal life-long commitment to Christianity; development of Christlike qualities of humanity, truthfulness, integrity ,etc.
Student Code of Conduct
The Straitgate College System is committed to providing a safe, engaging, and supportive learning environment where all policies are enforced fairly and consistently. Student disciplinary regulations emphasize instruction and rehabilitation rather than punishment, and are designed to foster and reward appropriate behavior and keep students connected to school so they can graduate college and career ready.
The SGC Student Code of Conduct provides a framework to support behavioral goals and disciplinary policies. All students are expected to be aware of and abide by this Student Code of Conduct. Parents/guardians are encouraged to read the Student Code of Conduct carefully and to discuss the information with their children.
Schools should provide the instruction and support necessary to meet students’ academic and behavioral needs, and identify fair and developmentally appropriate behavioral expectations for all members of the school community. Educators and other adults in the school should teach students to behave in ways that conform to these policies and contribute to academic success. This is achieved by reinforcing positive behavior, preventing misbehavior before it occurs, supporting students in overcoming challenges, and fostering positive relationships among all members of the school community.
Research shows that students are more likely to accept responsibility for their actions and the consequences of their behavior when school discipline is administered fairly, equitably, and consistently. Schools must also employ due process protections when enforcing discipline, and must not allow harsh or exclusionary discipline to disproportionately impact specific groups of students, including but not limited to students of color, students with disabilities, economically disadvantaged students and male students.
Students share responsibility with school staff for maintaining an environment of mutual respect and dignity in the school. Students take an active role in making school a supportive, safe, and welcoming place for all students and staff in these ways:
Demonstrate pride in self, in the future, and in school by arriving on time, dressing appropriately, and being prepared to focus on your studies.
Be respectful and courteous to fellow students, parents/guardians, and school staff.
Seek the most peaceful means of resolving conflict, and obtain the assistance of teachers, administrators, parent/guardian, or school staff, when unable to resolve conflicts.
Follow school rules and policies, and contribute to a positive school climate by behaving appropriately, even when not specifically asked to do so.
Recognize how your conduct affects other students and school staff, and make every reasonable effort to restore relationships and correct any harm caused to others in the school community.
Seek access to and complete make-up work while out of school for disciplinary reasons.
