    This paper draws on various previous academic research and focuses on Ghana’s education and the impact of traditional cultures on students Learning in the country. This article uses the country Ghana as a case study. The main purpose of this paper is to explore both the positive and negative impact of culture on students learning in Ghana. Students in Ghana are likely to be influenced by cultural beliefs. There are several cultural beliefs which Ghanaians have trust or hope in them. This paper explores deeper into some of these cultures. I think the beliefs of certain groups of people could have a greater impact on the behaviours of such people. Such believes could be a positive or negative aspect. To make this clearer, in Ghana, supports parents may provide on their children’s education in various communities are usually linked to parents’ traditional cultures. There are over a hundred various cultural groups in Ghana. Not forgetting that, each culture has its own degree of trust in formal education. Some cultures believe formal education is very relevant other cultures may think the opposite. This implies that Ghana as a country has a very complex cultural lifestyle which all students in Ghana find themselves. Hence, there is a feeling that some cultures beliefs may be strong, rigid and therefore should be a liability when there is the need for adaptation. Some older traditions are still part of the current culture of Ghanaians and may have positive or negative effects, especially on students’ education in various school in Ghana. The focus here is on students in Ghana. But it is important to state that, way of life of people in Ghana cannot be taken for granted. Because generally, this adds up in developing, forming attitudes and identity of Ghanaians.
