SAGAR ACADEMY OF EDUCATION ( R ), a charitable and non-profit trust, started on 24th October, 2002 to work in the field of education , culture and sports along with community development programmes.

So, as a first step the TRUST started HONGIRANA SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE, a co-educational, partially residential school affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education, New Delhi, in the year 2003 at Amatekoppa, a hamlet 7 kms from Sagar in Shimoga district. As a further step, the TRUST started HONGIRANA INDEPENDENT SCIENCE PU COLLEGE recognized by the Govt. of Karnataka in 2006 with PCMB & PCMC combination.

HONGIRANA –‘the golden rays of sun” was established to give quality education to the rural children within the context of mutual respect and joy.

Hongirana is anchored by a group of like-minded friends who believe in developing a community based on strong human relationship and also to build a campus which is serene, rustic, and comfortable to children and gives free and open space for expression. Since its inception in 2003, it has been trying to create awareness, develop skills in accordance with the child’s potential. Through a student-centered holistic approach, the school aims at achieving physical, aesthetic and academic excellence and consequently, human excellence.


Our concerns are:

• To create a home within the school where a child can be free to be ‘a child’!
• To motivate children to think, learn, excel on their own
• To integrate effective programmes for academic excellence
• To give holistic education to the rural children
• To inculcate human and social values and togetherness in children
• To enhance creativity and thoughts of children
• To develop social responsibility in children
• To encourage practical and application oriented learning through interactive sessions with the subject experts and through the workshops
• To create a strong parent-child-teacher bond.
• To love and care nature
