Ratnapura St. Aloysius College

St. Aloysius College (Sinhala: ශාන්ත ඇලෝසියස් විද්‍යාලය, රත්නපුර) is a government boys' school situated in the middle of Ratnapura town, Sri Lanka.

The school was established in 1888 as St. Peters Bilingual School by Father Pierre Bolin of the Ratnapura Catholic Mission (Abeyawardana, 2002). By 1893, the academic activities of the school had been stopped but in 1898, a new school named St. Peters & St. Pauls was commenced (Abeyawardana, 2002). However, that school was registered in 1900 as a bilingual school by the name St. Aloysius (Abeyawardana, 2002). The government took over the school in 1960 (Abeyawardana, 2002).

At present, the school has common facilities such as classrooms, laboratories, libraries, playground etc. The Annual Big Match of the school is held every year against Sivali Central College, Ratnapura.
