When Bangladesh and Pakistan were a joined country, the Pakistan Military Force established cadet colleges in West Pakistan (now Pakistan) and in East Pakistan (now Bangladesh). After the Bangladesh liberation war in 1971, Bangladesh Armed Forces established six more cadet colleges. Mymensingh Girls Cadet College was one of the six cadet colleges established in 1984. It is situated in the north eastern part of Bangladesh in Mymensingh district, and was the first girls' cadet college in Bangladesh. Since 2006 two more Girls' Cadet Colleges have been established. Its total area is about 21 acres (85,000 m2).
Students take Secondary School Certificate (SSC) and Higher Secondary Certificate (HSC). Usually most of the students take Science but a few take Arts. More than 98% of the students get A+ in SSC and HSC. In 2001 only 77 examinees in SSC secured GPA 5 in the whole country, and out of them 72 were from Mymensigh Girls' Cadet College. Last year (2011) they gained the 4th and 1st positions in SSC and HSC results respectively.-->
