Annual Conference

Sustainable Living in a Big City

The 33rd annual CEI Conference will be hosted by the TED Istanbul College Foundation Private High School and the Turkey Branch of CEI


The network of TED schools dates back to 1928 when the Turkish Educational Society (to become later in 1946 the Turkish Educational Association) was set up to carry forward the  guiding principles of modern, technological, investigative, innovative and collaborative education in the light of the founder of Turkish Republic, Mustafa Kemal Ataturk. TED Ankara Koleji was the first school to be established in the early thirties and there is now a network of 40 TED schools throughout Turkey, sharing these common principles and providing quality education in a contemporary, democratic structure.   TED Istanbul Koleji was the ninth co-educational TED high school to be founded in September 1998 and has grown into a fully-fledged educational establishment, with its first graduates in June 2003.

 Current TED Istanbul facilities include computer labs, a campus network with internet access, two libraries, science labs, performing arts center, dormitory, outdoors tennis and basketball courts, multi-court sports hall, and several academic and nonacademic buildings. TED Istanbul campus, occupies a land area of approximately 40,000 square meters (10 acres) and an indoor area of 28,000 square meters (311,000 square feet) on the Asian side of the Bosporus.

There are 184 full-time teachers, 17 academic administrators including the deans, one overseas college counselor, two librarians, and 74 administrative staff. Turkish teachers make up roughly 80% of the faculty, while the remaining teachers are native-English speakers.
