Kolej is the Turkish word for college though it is used as a supplementary title for private high schools in Turkey. The name originates from Robert College, the first American educational institution founded outside of the United States. Though founded as a college, Robert College has been operating as a private high school since 1971. According to the Turkish education system, official name for a private high school is the direct translation, özel lise, not kolej.

The word "Kolej" is regularly used to refer to TED Ankara College in Turkey. Additionally, Kolej is a neighborhood named after Ankara Koleji, in the Çankaya district of Ankara, the capital of Turkey.
