About the School:

Sainik School Bijapur began functioning in temporary shelters on September 16, 1963. Sainik Schools were the result of a joint initiative launched in 1961 by the Union Ministry of Defence and respective state governments. It was an initiative whose primary aim was to prepare boys for an officer's career in the Indian armed forces.

Three large sized tents was erected in the courtyard to provide supplementary working space. One of the tents served as the mess, and the others acted as temporary classrooms for the higher graders.

The school moved to its present permanent and spacious campus in the month of November 1966. Dr. Zakir Hussain, Vice President of India, declared the school campus formally open on December 17, 1966.

Initially offering the secondary school leaving certificate at the completion of course, SSBJ now offers the CBSE syllabus of study. It is also a member of the IPSC.

In accordance with the primary aim of all the Sainik schools, SSBJ seeks to prepare boys academically, physically and mentally for entry into the National Defence Academy, Khadakvasla (Pune).
