About the Uduvil Seminary

Half an hour outside the city limits rests a special school for Sri Lanka and South Asia as a whole. In 1820, the Uduvil Seminary was established in an abandoned Franciscan mission built by the Portuguese. In 1824, Harriet Winslow, a missionary, turned it into an all-girls boarding school called Missionary Seminary and Female Central School. It holds the title of Asia's first all-girls boarding school. As of today, Uduvil Girls' College is home to more than 1500 students.
