“Eyüboğlu Educational Institutions, which we founded with the awareness of the enormous responsibility to educate, in the best way possible, the young people who have been entrusted to our understanding of education, have now left behind 34 years of academic endeavors. Our graduates who are still continuing their education in various parts of the world and those who have completed their education and have gone on to start careers in various positions without ever compromising on the principle of serving humanity as their top priority, are a source of pride and hope for us.
Cherishing Atatürk’s principles, these creative and self-confident young people, endowed with up-to-date knowledge and able to think and act appropriately, deem it an honor to work for the future of their people and country and as such, they have become role models for all Eyüboğlu students. Despite all the difficulties in the art of education which is based on working with the most difficult of raw materials, i.e. humans, Eyüboğlu Educational Institutions are committed to raising young people to serve humanity as innovative, modern and successful individuals who cherish Atatürk’s principles.”
