It is a private co-educational day school and exists to serve students aged 6-17. The school term is based upon three terms from September to mid-June.

The programme at Özel Çag Lisesi is based on the national curriculum. In mathematics and science lessons the instruction is in English.

There is an extra academic programme to prepare students for university entrance examinations and UCLES.

Each year the English, maths and science courses are offered on Saturdays, from September to June. In addition, students are privately prepared for UCLES, international EFL and young learners examinations (each year at least 110 students take these exams). From grade one to grade eleven English is taught by native-speaker and Turkish English teachers.

The school aims to develop skills and moral values, so theatrical shows performed by students in Turkish and English at the end of each year and there are performances throughout the year. Theatrical shows performed by students in grades 6-9 are prepared in three languages. Students enjoy piano and violin recitals, conferences, full-day excursions, poetry days, literature days, debates, knowledge competitions and outings and summer visits to England. They are also involved with service projects with local villages, an almshouse and an orphanage. Folk-dancing and modern dancing lessons are also offered to students.

The school's facilities include four science laboratories, a 35-student computer lab, an Internet-linked library, video rooms, a multi-purpose room, an indoor gymnasium, music and art rooms, a theatre hall seating over 300 equipped with LCD projection display, tennis and basketball courts, playing fields, an 800-seat dining hall and a football pitch.
