He then got admission into the undoubtedly best secondary school in Ghana and West Africa at large– Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (Legon PRESEC) where he studied as a Business student till he completed the school in 2011 with a WASSCE (West Africa Secondary School Certificate Examination) certificate.

Currently, Sean Taylor is a proud alumnus of the University of Ghana having graduated with a Second Class Upper Degree in Adult Education and Human Resource Studies- which he gained in 2015 after completion of a four-year programme at the university.
