The Scindia Kanya Vidyalaya was founded in 1956 by my revered mother - in - law, Rajmata Vijaya Raje Scindia to be a temple of learning dedicated to educating the girl-child. My mother-in-law and late husband were far-sighted visionaries and pioneers in social reform who dreamt of giving a gift of lifelong learning to the young Indian women.
Starting with this vision, the School rapidly evolved over the decades, with every year calling for new measures to meet emerging needs. One thing has remained constant the commitment to quality and basic values. Property may be destroyed and money may lose its purchasing power but, character, health knowledge and good judgement will always be in demand under all conditions.
While the School remains staunchly rooted in all that is good in our tradition, it has its vision trained unfailing on the best in global standards. An education at SKV has empowered generations of students who have gone on to secure positions in reputed institutions of higher education.
The Scindia Kanya Vidyalaya has an illustrious name and a glorious tradition to follow. Its founders have been some of the great leaders of our age who have been true pioneer in the development of the human spirit. We have much to look up to much to follow.
My good wishes are with the new aspirants to this seat of learning. May your journey through Scindia Kanya Vidyalaya lead into light.
