From Being to Becoming Courageous visionaries, meticulous planner, decisive executors and inspired achievers, the Chairman, Mr. Apurba Kumar Saha and his wife Mrs. Shima Rani Saha began the school with a vision for children who would grow up in an institution where the teachers open the door for the pupils to enter by themselves and also show them all the beauty the possess inside.
Vaishno Devi Academy (High School.) had been established on 21st April 2002 at Krishnapur, Kolkata. The beginning the school was housed in ground floor of a multi-storied building near 7 no tank Kheya ghat and had only 4 pupils on its roll. The first couple of years was a period of stress and struggle but the tenacious spirit of the school soon made it grow by in leaps and bounds.
This growth made the expansion programme take shape so that the school’s commitment to excellence in both academic and non-academic activities is kept alive. On 18th April 2005, the foundation stone of a six storied building near 206 Kehya-ghat was laid and from April 2007, the school moved to its new premises and zealously started with pre-primary, primary and middle school. Ever since the scope of academic, cultural and extra-curricular activities greatly increased and the school enjoys the goodwill and respect of the people in and around Rajarhat.
The School has got the affiliation to the West Bengal Board of Secondary Education upto Class – X. Higher Secondary Education ( class – XI and XII ) will commence from 2018 Academic Year.
The School is governed by the members of the Trustee Board headed by the Founder Chairman, Mr. Apurba Kumar Saha and other members.
For the smooth administration of the school a Managing Committee has been formed. It comprises of The President, The Vice President, The DI Representative, The Secretary, The Headmaster & Joint Secretary, Teachers’ representatives, Guardian representatives and Non-teaching Staff representation. A five member Sub-committee (Finance) looks into the finances of the school. There is an Academic Council to look after the Syllabus and other academic activities of the School.
