THE D.A.V. MOVEMENT
Dayanand Anglo Vedic College Trust and Management Society was founded in the year 1885 to achieve the goals set up by Maharshi Dayanand Saraswati who was not only a social reformer and one the greatest patriots of his time – but also as Gurudev Rabindranath Tagore called him – “ great path – maker in Modern India”.
D.A.V. IS A CHARITABLE ORGANISATION AND ONE OF THE LARGEST NON-GOVERMENTAL ORGANISATIONS IN THE COUNTRY IN THE FIELD OF EDUCATION AND SOCIAL WELFARE.
The Society was established to spread Maharshi Dayanand’s teachings and ideals for reviving the study of the Vedas and to bring about a social and moral change in the Indian Society, which at that time was in the clutches of ignorance, superstitions, blind faith, retrogressive practices and inhuman customs.
D.A.V. continues to propagate the message of the Vedas and the progressive views of Maharshi Dayanand along with making available to people the latest research in the sphere of Science, Technology and Education.
Today D.A.V. has become synonymous with Excellence in Education. During the past 125 years, the movement has taken a big leap forward by starting a chain of public schools in different states of our country. At present the D.A.V. is perhaps one single private organization, which is running, and managing more than 600 schools, colleges, medical and technical institutions in different states and far-flung areas of our country. D.A.V. also runs educational centres in some foreign countries like Nepal, Mauritius, Japan, U.K. and U.S.A.

Parents form an integral part of  D.A.V. education system
Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the Founder of D.A.V. and greatest Indian Educationist of 19th century made a clarion call to the parents regarding them as potentially the greatest teachers of their children. He advocated that they are the most capable people besides the teachers to inculcate and nurture the seeds of culture, tradition and values in the developing child.
D.A.V. schools have therefore laid much emphasis on child-centered education and interactive teaching-learning methods. This thus gives the parents opportunity to interact with the teachers and share their views and perceptions; their hopes and aspirations; and their anxieties and fears regarding their children.
