Adana American College was one of the many missionary schools that were founded during the late 19th century in the Ottoman Empire.


The school was opened in 1880 after the construction of the first building, now located at the east side of the school campus. The larger building was built just next to the Cemal Gürsel street in 1914. American High School was closed by the Government of Turkey in 1927, and the school building was used as a state high school since then.
