The endeavor is to provide schooling opportunities in ‘CBSE Plus’ type of educational environment by involving desirous government, private schools and NGOs to partner in establishing their system with Sainik Schools’ ethos, value system and national pride. 

It envisages enrolling existing/upcoming schools to be run on the lines of Sainik Schools’ curriculum. Ministry of Defence in a statement said that all 100 schools are proposed to be affiliated to Sainik Schools Society and such affiliated Sainik Schools will be provided with partial financial support to incentivise the effort.
