SHIKSHA - Shiv Nadar Foundation Initiative

Established as a leadership academy for the economically underprivileged, meritorious students of rural India, VidyaGyan seeks to bridge the urban-rural divide by creating a leadership pool which can act as change agents for their families, communities, nation, and society at large.

Recognised for conducting one of the most extensive admission processes in the private sector for grade V students, VidyaGyan aspires to identify potential leaders from across 75 districts of Uttar Pradesh and exposes them gratis to world-class education in a fully-residential campus. 

Pedagogy at VidyaGyan takes an innovative and unconventional approach, with an amalgam of academic and co-curricular activities. Avant-garde learning facilities, collaborative learning, fine arts facilities, computer, maths and science laboratories, indoor sports rooms, amphitheatre, art blocks, outdoor sports arena, flipped classrooms, practical training and mentorship programs are made available to students across the two campuses in Bulandshahr (near Delhi-NCR) and Sitapur (near Lucknow, UP) spanning 67 acres.
