The Navodaya Vidyalayas envisage a progressive pattern of excellence and development aimed at identification and development of talented, bright and gifted children, predominantly from rural areas. These institutions are envisaged as model and pace-setting institutions to spearhead the Secondary Education System in India and pave the way for the realisation of national goals.
These Vidyalayas have been conceived as an idea, a progressive concept lending its might in the making of a vibrant and through an unrelenting pursuit of academic and educational excellence. Objectives of quality education with a strong component of culture, inculcation of values, awareness of the environment, reasonable level of competence in the languages as envisaged in the Three Language Formula; serving the respective district as focal points for improving quality of education through sharing of experiences and facilities - have been some of the main aims of these institutions.
Social cohesion, inculcation of human and cultural, values and consistent interaction with the local community are helping these institutions to develop as centres of academic excellence and a repository of excellent human resource.
The successive progress in the academic results of JNVs in public examinations conducted by CBSE and the records about placement of students after passing out from the Vidyalayas indicate that the Samiti is moving in the right direction. Class-X and XII Examination results of JNVs have been consistently better than the overall CBSE national averages.
In Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas, all out efforts are made to develop competencies among students in scholastic and non-scholastic areas of education leading to effective personality development of each child. Scholastic excellence can be seen in the comparison of average, pass percentages of NVS and that of other school systems like KendriyaVidyalayas and private schools.
