In a bid to provide quality education to students in line with the National Education Policy, the government has given approval for the establishment of 21 new Sainik schools, in partnership with NGOs, private schools and state governments.
NGOs and the private sector would have the opportunity to work with the government to achieve the process of nation building by refining the youth of today to become the responsible citizens of tomorrow. These schools, which are among the 100 new Sainik schools the government has planned to open across the country, will be separate from existing Sainik schools nationwide and will be operational in partnership mode.
Among these 21 schools, 17 of them are Brownfield schools, while the other four are Greenfield schools which will soon be operational. “While NGOs/Trusts/Corporations have a share of 12 new approved schools, 6 private schools and 3 state government owned schools find their way into the list of these new approved Sainik schools,” the ministry said.
The existing Sainik schools are purely residential in nature. Of the 21 new schools, seven are day schools while 14 of these new approved schools have residential arrangements.
The government has informed that the new Sainik schools will be functional under the umbrella of the Sainik Schools Society and will follow the rules and regulations for new Sainik schools in partnership mode prescribed by the Society. Their affiliation with the respective school boards would continue. In addition to their regular Affiliate Counseling program, they will also provide Academic PLUS program instruction to students in the Sainik school model.

Entry into the new Sainik school model at these schools will be at the Class VI level exclusively on the lines shown below. At least 40% of Class VI admission will be from candidates who qualify for NTA All-India Sainik School Entrance Examination through online counseling. Up to 60% of the admission will come from students enrolled in the same school who wish to pursue admission into this vertical of the new Sainik schools via a qualifying test, for which a separate notice will be issued.
Applicants who have passed the All India Sainik Schools Entrance Examination 2022 are notified through their email address registered with the NTA about the opening of new approved Sainik schools and the procedure for applying in those schools. Such qualified applicants seeking admission to a new accredited school of their choice will need to self-register for online counseling at https:/sainikschool.ncog.gov.in.
