In 1937, an Instructor Course and the Trakya Teacher Training School were opened in Karaağaç, Edirne. The School and the Course were transferred first to Alpullu and later to Lüleburgaz. Once the decision was made to establish the school in Kepirtepe, the buildings began to rise. The students of the school, which became Kepirtepe Village Institute on 17 April 1940, migrated to the village of Hasanoğlan in Ankara once Trakya was evacuated due to security reasons. Nine months later, the school returned to Kepirtepe. 709 students graduated from Kepirtepe until the institutes were closed down.
