The Trapezunta Tuition Centre (Φροντιστήριον Τραπεζούντος) was founded in 1682 by Sebastos Kiminitis, one of the most respected Pontic Greek scholars of the 17th century. In 1902, Metropolitan Constantiou of Trebizond with the help of the Greek community proceeded with the redesigning of the Tuition Center, replacing it with a new 4 storey building which sat proudly along the Trapezuntine shoreline next to the grand temple of Saint Gregory of Nyssa .
