*********Education with a difference*********
"Education is not the amount of information that is put into your brain and runs riot there, undigested...We must have life-building, man making, character making assimilation of ideas"-Swami Vivekananda Sri Ramakrishna Vidyashala is a residential composite pre university college earnestly endeavoring to translate the aforesaid words of Swami Vivekananda, into effective social action, since its inception in 1953. Rooted firmly in the ageless values of Indian culture and spirituality and appropriately oriented to contemporary science and technology, the education system here aims at moulding youngsters into competent, committed, compassionate and indeed complete citizens of tomorrow. An exclusive feature of this system is that while it offers a carefully designed and updated course of studies, it also emphasizes co-curricular activities and channels for creative and constructive expression by the students, to help them develop a dynamic, healthy, all-round personality. The institution functions on a no-profit basis and caters to the income groups also through its own scholarship schemes. Sri Ramakrishna Vidyashala is managed personally by the monks of the Ramakrishna Order who live in the same premises, with involvement of qualified and motivated teachers. The campus, located in a sprawling 67 acre plot, is an ecologist's dream world, and an ideal setting for the Guru Kula system of education. The infrastructure is imaginatively designed and completely responds to the modern multidimensional academic and residential requirements of the system. Every year about 100 students pass out of the institution, and its 3500 plus alumni are spread all over India and abroad carrying out their professional and social responsibilities and conducting their lives as ideal citizens.
"As long as I live, so long do I learn"
