The Pakistan Scouts Cadet College Batrasi (PSCC) is a boarding institution located in the serene hills of Mansehra at a distance of 16 km from Mansehra city on the road to Kaghan which is a hill station in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province.The college was established in 1996, and is the first institution in the world being run by a scout organization.

History[edit]

The college was started as a residential institution in 1996. The buildings initially being used by the college were actually constructed by the Pakistan Scouts Association in coordination with the Government of Pakistan for Bosnian refugees being displaced in the Bosnian War. However, due to certain circumstances the refugees never came. The buildings were then allotted by the Scouts Association to build an institute of academic excellence.

Mission Statement[edit]

Pak­istan Scouts Cadet Col­lege Batrasi is one of the emi­nent edu­ca­tional insti­tu­tions of our coun­try. Estab­lished in 1996, it is rel­a­tively younger than its sis­ter insti­tu­tions of repute in the coun­try. Within a short span of time, the insti­tu­tion has achieved a sta­tus of dis­tinc­tion and is on road to fur­ther devel­op­ment and progress. Stu­dents from across the coun­try and abroad come to study at the col­lege. It is our endeav­our to pro­vide the best envi­ron­ments con­ducive for both phys­i­cal and men­tal devel­op­ment of the students.

A serene and peace­ful envi­ron­ment close to nature is an added advan­tage that we have. We pro­vide qual­ity edu­ca­tion through which we aim to exploit the poten­tials and incul­cate in the char­ac­ter of the stu­dents; integrity, hon­esty, hard work and dis­ci­pline. Through these traits, char­ac­ter build­ing of the stu­dents is to be achieved. We have been suc­cess­ful to a great extend in achiev­ing these objec­tives of the Col­lege. We have pro­duced out­stand­ing aca­d­e­mic results and excelled in co-curricular activ­i­ties. Our stu­dents have man­aged to get into out­stand­ing pro­fes­sional insti­tu­tions. Along with the aca­d­e­mic activ­i­ties the devel­op­men­tal projects in the Col­lege are also under­way in dif­fer­ent areas. As the Col­lege is pass­ing through a rapid devel­op­ment in these fields, a wide net­work of activ­i­ties has been wit­nessed over the years. A num­ber of activ­i­ties and events are being unfolded at the every pass­ing moment.[1]

Principal's Message[edit]
