Baku Private Turkish High School (Azerbaijani: Bakı Özəl Türk Liseyi , also abbr. BÖTL), was a private, boys-only, secondary school in Baku, Azerbaijan. Established in 1992, it was considered one of elite schools in Azerbaijan which had competitive admissions, where only 6th grade students who passed the admissions test were accepted. Tuition fee varied yearly and was about USD$ $7000. Courses were taught in Azerbaijani, English, and Turkish. Achievements included more than 203 medals in international competitions and olympiads and 98% university acceptance rate. School's graduates have continued their studies at universities of more than 15 countries including USA, Canada, Turkey, Germany, England, and Japan. Baku Private Turkish High School was a chain in a network of similar high schools across Azerbaijan run by Çağ Öyrətim İşlətmələri A.O. which was owned by the Azerbaijani state-owned oil and natural gas corporation of SOCAR.

In June 2014, the school was dissolved as part of the Azerbaijani government's crackdown on the Gülen Movement.[1][2][3]
