Olivet Baptist High School, Oyo, Nigeria (formerly Oyo Baptist Boys High School) located on a hill crest named Olivet Heights, was founded on 29th January, 1945 by Oyo and American Baptist Missions on its temporary site in the premises of the Old Baptist mission house at Oke-Isokun, Oyo (now occupied by Baptist College of Theology, Oyo).
The school has a versatile alumni association. The association has been particularly helpful in providing facilities for the current students of the school. A massive perimeter fence and a well-equipped health center were built in 1985 to mark the school’s 40th anniversary, while a memorable 60th anniversary in 2005 was marked with an overhaul of the physical structures of the school.
