Sainik School Kunjpura Karnal (Haryana) is one of the pioneer educational institutions
established in the country in 1961 at the behest of the then Defense Minister, Shri
VK Krishna Menon. The School is located in district Karnal and thus has the singular
honour of being in the land of ‘Mahabharat’ where Lord Krishna discoursed and enlightened
‘Arjuna’ with the knowledge of ‘Geeta’. Sainik School Kunjpura is located Ten Kms
from the heart of the city of Karnal and Seven Kms off the National Highway No 1
( Sher Shah Suri Marg). Far from the madding crowd it stands majestically sprawled
on 276 acres of lush green environment.
The primary aim of this institution is to prepare boys academically, physically
and mentally for entry into the National Defence Academy (NDA), Khadakvasla, Pune.
The school also aims to bring Public School Education within the reach of common
man and economically weaker sections of society. One of the main objectives is also
to prepare those cadets who fail to join NDA, for coveted careers elsewhere. Besides
preparing the boys for entry into NDA, the school prepares them for Secondary and
Senior Secondary Examination of the Central Board of Secondary Education.
