True Light Girls' College (TLGC, Chinese: 真光女書院) is a Christian girls' secondary school in Kowloon, Hong Kong. It was founded in 1973, to commemorate the centenary of the first True Light Middle School, which was founded in 1872 in Canton by the American missionary, Harriet Newell Noyes. It is run by the Kowloon True Light Middle School Management Board with the assistance of the Hong Kong Council of the Church of Christ in China.


The school is an aided EMI secondary school. Since it was built according to the standards of 30 years ago, much effort has been made to improve the basic facilities of the school premises to meet the needs of the a changing society. A new annex was completed in Autumn 2005, providing four more classrooms and some special rooms in addition to the 20 classroom in the main building. There are a total of 24 classrooms, 16 special rooms, a hall, a covered playground, a canteen, a library, a student activity room, a gymnastics room, a badminton court and two basketball courts. Student TV and a School History Gallery were established in 2013 to celebrate the school's 40th Anniversary. Later on, an E-learning Centre was built in 2014 to facilitate students' learning with the convenient use of gadgets and easy access to the Wi-Fi network.
