The flagship institute of Narayana Coaching Centre was established in the year 1979 as a coaching institute for aspirants of state level entrance exams.
Ever since Narayana began it has been growing at a remarkable pace. It was the visionary zeal of founder chairman Dr. P. Narayana, a gold medallist and renowned academician that led to the setting up of a coaching centre in Nellore, Andhra Pradesh, which was the precursor for the Narayana Group.
The perseverance paid off by 1983, the coaching center became a full-fledged institution. By 1985 this centre had earned a name for itself in offering the best possible education in its field of operations.
That was just the beginning. The vision propelled a growth that still fuels it today. A high school in 1990, a girls’ residential college in 1993 in Nellore and a junior college in 1999 along with IIT-JEE coaching centers in Nellore, Hyderabad, Visakhapatnam and Vijayawada were established.
The awesome wings of Narayana extended to professional education as well. Engineering Colleges at Nellore in 1998 and Gudur in 2001, a Medical College in 1999 and a Dental College in 2001 were also established. Few courses were included in a Paramedical Division of the Medical College in 2002. In the same year, junior colleges and EAMCET coaching centers were also established in Tirupati, Kurnool, Anantapur, Rajahmundry and Kakinada.
Delhi became the next destination in 2004. Two centres for IIT-JEE training were opened at Kalu Sarai and Punjabi Bagh and two for PMT & DCE training at Janakpuri and South Extension. The following year, centres at Mayur Vihar for IIT-JEE & Rohini for PMT/DCE came up. In the next year Noida, Faridabad & Gurgaon centres followed.
The Group’s Correspondence division started its operation in 2004-05 & the Online version of All India Test Series has come into effect from 2007.
Dr. P. Narayana has been the backbone of the group which today encorporates 100 plus campuses that caters to more than 1,75,000 students a year.
Now on its 35th year of existence Narayana Group continues with its dizzy heights of success. After nurturing thousands of students and helping them realize their cherished goals, Narayana has become a household name throughout the length and breadth of the country.
