   VISSION    
 
We envision a world endowed with the wealth of knowledge and the strength of discrimination (Viveka). We envision a system, which is a healthy breeding ground for the sprouting, culturing and dissemination of the whole gamut of knowledge in a wholesome and holistic manner for the well-being of humankind. We envision a human being empowered with wholesome knowledge, which makes one an enabler and facilitator in the deep search and striving of every human being for that knowledge. We envision a system wherein there is a great interplay and exchange of ideas, thoughts, feelings and actions, which develop people empowered with noble character and wholesome values. They go out into the fields of action to build a world of love, harmony, peace and knowledge. They follow the path of ‘Dharma’ and give a clear direction in every thought and human endeavor.
   
       
   MISSION    
 
To provide value-based education and mould the character of younger generation through a system of wholesome learning so that their earnest endeavor to achieve progress and prosperity in life, is matched by an ardent desire to extend selfless service to the society, one complementing the other.
