The Founder

Dr. Ponguru Narayana is regarded as one of the pioneering forces in teaching and learning in contemporary India. In recent decades, academicians and educationists have been able to bring a striking shift from inaccessible and archaic academic setups in Indian schools and colleges. Dr. Narayana's commitment to qualitatively change the previous scenario into a dynamic and systematic learning environment has, in fact, provided the impetus for this shift in Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and beyond.

Since 1979, Dr. Narayana has worked towards a seamless integration of learning made accessible and knowledge made attainable. His ideology and vision are to ensure that every student is provided with the foundation, the capabilities and the means to achieve rigour, skill and, ultimately, success. The Narayana Group of Educational Institutions is an embodiment of this noble vision.
