Visions and Missions
Vision and Visionaries
A spark ignited in 1886 in the realm of real education in India, in the form of DAV movement. Since its inception in 1875 by Swami Dayanand Saraswati , it has become an eternal flame that enlightens the path of knowledge & wisdom there by paving a way for a strong , self- reliant & progressive nation. Swami Dayanand , possessed of sharp intellect & a vision far ahead of his tunes, he realized that salvation lay in educating masses by propagating the real message of Vedas. The philosophy of Swami Dayanand was translated in reality by Mahatma Hans Raj and his selfless, dedicated and enlightened associates who decided to establish an Education Trust to run schools and colleges. Frail of body but possessing heroic spirits, Mahatma Hans Raj voluntarily opted for a life of self denial & renunciation. He started a school in Lahore on 1st June 1886 by the name of DAYANANDA ANGLO VEDIC SCHOOL and as the first Principal of the first DAV institutions offered his honorary services as “ Jeevan Daan” for 25 years. Today DAV Public School systems in the single largest non- governmental education society in India sheltering 667 institutions, 461 of which are high level institutions which are run by DAV College Trust & Management Society.

It provides a congenial environment for all round development of the whole personality and its integration with the society, particularly in reference to the Indian context. Positive ideas are inculcated in students as regards personal hygiene, neatness of uniform, cleanliness of surroundings, graceful manners, obedience and discipline. We understand that children do need adult supervision, care, faith and trust. So we are committed to provide a support structure to realize their potential and their dreams. With a good team of highly motivated and dedicated teachers, the academic output of the school especially in terms of Board results have improved qualitatively over the years. Learning is an enjoyable activity here as teachers make their lessons very interesting by incorporating various methods of teaching, viz. Demonstration, Experimentation, Project Work, Home Assignments, Play-way, Micro - teaching etc. The strength & success of DAV schools lie in the harmonious blend of science and technology and a sound grounding of ancient Vedic Culture.
