It is located on the main road, about 6 kilometers away from Takerhat on the way of Gopalgonj, about 116 kilometers south of Dhaka, the capital city of Bangladesh.  The seminary is named in honor of Grace Kellogg-Mookerjee, an early American teacher of the school, and her husband, Lal Gopal Mookerjee, a pioneer worker in Bangladesh.  This school is the successor of the Gopalgonj Boys’ School which L.
