Sainik School SambalPur

Sainik School Sambalpur is the 33rd Sainik School in the country and second in the state of Odisha. It was inaugurated by Shri Naveen Patnaik, Chief Minister of Odisha on 27 February 2015. The new building and infrastructure was brought up within five years.The concept of Sainik Schools was conceived by Mr. VK Krishna Menon, Defence Minister of India in the early 1960s. Mr. Menon felt that a school with rudiments of a military way of life in each state of our country, could go a long way in building up an infrastructure for intake into the NDA. Thus, Sainik Schools came into being in each state.

The petrifying and severe impact of Covid 19 has shaken the world to its core. Fighting an unknown, unseen enemy with no definite cure in sight, with the growing darkness of Covid 19 engulfing the entire world forcing people to stay home, silencing the busiest places of the world with a wave of fear and death, most of the governments around the world have temporarily closed educational institutions in an attempt to curb the spread of the deadly disease.

When the world order is going through a metamorphosis, Sainik School Sambalpur welcomes its first batch of hundred boys with a mission & vow to attract and develop exceptional boys from all backgrounds to serve a meritocratic India which is as relevant now as it will be in future. With Scholarships and Bursaries available to support the majority of our students, our aim is to produce officers with exceptional values and astute leadership skills for the armed forces year after year.

Sainik School Goes Virtual

With COVID-19 upending the established order, educators and students find themselves faced with their own set of challenges. While traditional methods of learning have become ineffective, we at Sainik School Sambalpur have taken the challenge head on. To that end, Sainik School Sambalpur has gone wholly virtual, covering every aspect of learning to the last detail. All our classrooms have gone online, following the daily academic time table meticulously. We are glad to note that the educators and cadets have become perfectly accustomed to this new method, however, we await the arrival of our cadets.
