Haatso is a newly developed neighborhood in Accra, located at the Ga East Municipal District in the Dome Kwabenya Constituency. It has emerged as a popular route for commuters in neighbouring environs because it has a taxi rank and "mini" bus station. Some known landmarks include Ecomog, Block Factory, Yam Market and the nearby famous Achimota Golf Course. Haatso, which initially started as a plantation community of banana farmers is now home to supermarkets, shops and banks. An ecosystem of education has built up in recent years, with Brainy Bairn School, Mannieson Christian School, Sunrise Montessori and Wisconsin University all situated here. Nearby hospitals are Medifem, Lapaz Community Clinic and Achimota Hospital. The presence of community police, neighbourhood watchdog service and the proximity of Atomic Police Station make Haatso a safe and secure community to live and work in.

Educating Students in Ghana Since 2009

Academic City College, a National Accreditation Board accredited institution, was launched in 2009 by the Eureka Africa group, with a mission to deliver much needed affordable modern education to develop a competitive labor pool in Ghana.

Since 2009, Academic City College has been a standalone facility in Ring Road, Accra that was popularly known for its affiliated programme with Sikkim Manipal University (SMU). Over the course of 9 years, Academic City College has graduated over 3,000+ students from over 23 countries in Africa. The College's alumni have established themselves as distinguished professionals in various fields, working at reputed organizations such as international banks, manufacturing firms, corporate offices, government departments, financial institutions and educational institutions in Ghana and West Africa. 

In 2017, the group recognized the re-adjusted need for premium quality tertiary education infused with entrepreneurial thinking, innovative problem-solving, application-based learning, and an emphasis on ethical practices, within the African context. Henceforth, the Eureka Africa group re-positioned Academic City with a renewed purpose and a brand new campus, to deliver transformative, modern-day tertiary education.
