Faujdarhat Cadet College, is a military high school (grade 7 to grade 12), modelled after public schools in the UK (according to the Public Schools Act 1868), financed partially by the Bangladesh Army, located at Faujdarhat, near Chittagong, in Bangladesh.


Faujdarhat Cadet College boards 300 boys between the ages of 12 and 18, 50 in each year for grades 7 to 12. Admission is through a nationwide test composed of written, oral, medical examinations & ISSB.

It was the first cadet college to be established in erstwhile East Pakistan. It was established on 28 April 1958[1] by New Zealander William Maurice Brown. Until 1965, it was known as the East Pakistan Cadet College.

The Principal of the school is ranked Lieutenant Colonel, and is appointed by the Adjutant General's branch of the Bangladesh Army.[citation needed]

From 2003, the cadet colleges in Bangla Desh were converted to the English version of the National curriculum.[citation needed]
