To fulfil our mission of empowering students,

the college lays great emphasis on the all-round development of all its pupils. While academic excellence is of course encouraged and rewarded, a variety of extra-curricular activities conducted by the institutions enable students to explore and bring out their talents and potential and develop an onward looking and confident personality.

“Whatever you do in word or in deed,
do all the Name of Lord, Giving Thanks to Him.”
It’s no small achievement to distinguish oneself in such diverse fields as commerce, education, and philanthropy. Pujya Shriman Karamshibhai Jethabhai Somaiya, born on May 16 1902 in the remote village of Malunjar in Ahmednagar district of Maharashtra, India, was however, a blessed person by dint of hard work and singular devotion to service.
