With thirteen students and four members of staff, the gates of Ota Total Academy were thrown wide open for the commencement of school activities.
The founder, Chief A. A. Babasanya (the former Principal, Iganmode Grammar school) had envisioned a school which will uphold the principles of high academic and moral standard which Iganmode, a public school which he administered typified. And on Monday, 17th of September, 2001, the dream was born when the then Principal Mrs. S.O.A. Ayeni stood to address the inaugural assembly of O.T.A students.
To prepare students for success in the 21st century by engaging them in relevant learning opportunities that will develop their innate potentials.
To create a pathway to assist students in achieving their educational and personal goals, thus leading to a fulfilling future within the greater community.
T – Team-focused
O – Optimism
T – Technology-driven
A – Academic Excellence
L – Learners Specific
Little wonder, the school waited to present its first set for the Ogun State JSCE in June 2004, and three years later, for its first WASSCE. In the end, outstanding performances were recorded in both examinations; the fruit of a six-year experiment was worth the long wait. This record established the school as one place where prospective students can seek top-level secondary school education, graduate with good grades and gain admission into choice tertiary schools within and outside the shores of the country.
We have much to be proud of as

I am proud to be a part of the tradition of success that has been built over many years at Ota Total Academy and am elated to be your Principal.
