Adamjee Cantonment College (Bengali: আদমজী ক্যান্টনমেন্ট কলেজ) also known as ACC is an educational institution in Dhaka Cantonment, Dhaka, Bangladesh. The institution was established in 1960 following the ideology of originally renowned public schools of England – Eton and Harrow. It is managed by Bangladesh Army[1] and primarily for the children of Army personnel. But students from the civilian section can also study in this college.[2][3]


On 16 February 1960, Adamjee Cantonment College started its journey as an English medium school that was founded by Gul Muhammad Adamjee (son of Sir Adamjee Haji Dawood, founder of Adamjee Group). The institution was later renamed Adamjee Cantonment College. A public school attached to the college served students in first to tenth grade. The school was separated in 1995 and was made a totally independent institution.[4]

Location and infrastructure[edit]

The college is located in the center of Dhaka Cantonment, Dhaka, the capital of Bangladesh.

Spread across nearly 10 acres of land, the college has an administration building, a science building, a library building, a BBA building, a Masters building, a playground, a mosque, a garden, a cafeteria, a Shaheed Minar and a stage (Shaheed Rumi Moncho).



The college authority publishes an admission circular every year after the publication of the SSC results. New students (both boys and girls) are admitted to the 11th grade via online applications.[5] They are admitted to the college according to the merit list based on their obtained marks in the SSC examinations. The children of Army personnel have a special quota for admission.

Examples include hosting science festivals and Model United Nations (MUN) assemblies,[6][7] participating in debate competitions and sports tournaments,[8][9] and so on.

The college holds annual sports competitions that help students develop mental and physical toughness.[10]
