Eseyan Armenian School

The Eseyan Armenian School is founded by the brothers Hovhannes Eseyan and Mıgırdiç Eseyan, who responded to the aid campaign initiated by the Beyoğlu Executive Board to meet the community's need for school. The philanthropic siblings demand that their surname name to the school before starting construction work. Upon the acceptance of this request by the congregation, the construction of the Eseyan Armenian school, whose foundation was laid on Taksim Meşelik Street, started in 1893 and completed in 1895 as a result of two years of work, the school begins to accept its first students.

The school, which was administered in the form of coeducation in its first years, then provides education only for girls. During World War I years, in the school which was allocated to the training of nurses, lab established Turkey's first post-war.

The historical school in Istanbul, which was also used as an orphanage for a while, was renovated with various repair works in 1923 and reaches the present day. During the renovation works, the destroyed/ruined Surp Harutyon Church, located on the school's land, was also renovated.

The school, which was switched back to coeducation form as of 1993 and renovated with a major repair in the 2000s, continues its education life today.
