Madhya Maha Vidyalaya (Sinhala: Central College) in Sri Lanka is a type of government school. Originally established by the Hon. Dr. C.W.W. Kannangara, Minister of Education in the State Council of Ceylon as part of his initiative in establishing free education in Sri Lanka in the 1930s.

Since then several schools were granted status of a central college and at present most colleges are funded and administered by the local provincial council. While a few which have been designated national schools are funded and administered by the Ministry of Education.[1]
