Abstract:Reza Shah rose to power in 1921 with the goal of creating modern, Iranian nation-state. Education played an important role in achieving this objective. The classroom was essential in the creation of a national identity that was rooted in the Persian language and culture as well as the pre-Islamic past. However, the Shah lacked the resources to build an effective network of public schools and relied on missionary institutions like Alborz College. The school, which was patronized by the Iranian elite and the urban middle class, taught students from a variety of ethnic, linguistic, and religious backgrounds and provided the ideal institution to craft an Iranian identity. The school's enforcement of the Persian language and culture was coupled by a goal of crafting Western-minded citizens. These two pillars of Alborz's program were indispensable to the Shah who believed that modernization lay in the Western nation- state.
