The necessity of quality education for the underprivileged children of Chittagong Hill Tracts was felt for a long time. With the splendid aim of preparing the next generation of this region as responsible and educated citizens of the country the General Officer Commanding of 24 Infantry Division and Area Commander of Chittagong area laid the foundation stone of Khagrachari Cantonment Public School & College (KCPSC) on April 27, 2002. The institution was formally inaugurated on December 28, 2005 by Chief of Army Staff Lt Gen Moyeen U Ahmed. Maj Asif Iqbal, AEC was the first Principal of the Institution.
KCPSC is located right beside Khagrachari Cantonment in an area of 9.42 acre of land surrounded by pictorial / charming green hills. The structural design of the modern state of art buildings of the institution greatly charms visitors. On the north side of the campus there is a hillside lake with a sculpture of white lotus symbolizing beauty and unity of multicultural communities of Khagrachari.
KCPSC started its journey in 2006 with admission of students from KG to Class VIII. Extending the efforts it opened its doors for Secondary and Higher Secondary students in 2007. The institution is directed by Bangladesh Army and maintaining rules and regulations of Intermediate and Secondary Education Board, Chittagong and the Ministry of Education. The results of the students in all the public examinations are showing a steady progress despite many hurdles. The institution started with just 350 students, now with the passage of time the number has grown to an impressive 1480 students. With the dedication and committment of the teachers and gleaming interest of the students the institute is moving forward to the desired destination.
The hostel of the institution was built with a view to imparting education to the students living in remote places of the Chittagong Hill Tracts. The hostel life is a perfect example of the cultural and ethnic diversity of this region. The four storied hostel building has a capacity of 100 students.
We have a plan to start Language Club, Debate Club, Music & Dance Club to explore and nourish the hidden potentiality of the young learners. The motto of the institution is to impart education, discipline and morality. It has a flag of navy blue colour with the monogram of the institution in the middle.
