Pre- University Education is a turning point in everybody’s life. The future of a student in terms of profession, personality and employability will be decided based on education, training and skills imbibed in 11th and 12th standard. Hence a good academic atmosphere, learning environment and continuous monitoring is needed to mould the character and destiny of a student during these two years of adolescence. Our college is having the right vision, mission and motto to fulfill the aspirations of ‘students and parents’ in particular and ‘society’ at large. We strive passionately to build a holistic personality of every studentto realize their dreams and make them a reality.

With best wishes,

Dr. H. S. NiranjanAradhya,
