Paragon Junior College of Science, Arts & Commerce (PJCSAC), Badarpur is a path-breaking initiative in the domain of Higher/Senior Secondary Education in the valley and the adjoining regions. The college was established in the year 2014. The initiative is a brainchild of group of eminent educationists. Supported by members of residents of Badarpur area, who realized the vacuum of a good institution for HS education of children and which at the same time, addressed some of the major problems faced by students/guardians while attempting to provide themselves/their children with HS education which was of a quality, good enough to ensure an edge in the highly competitive environment of the 21st century world.
The College is administered by Paragon NGO, a charitable non-profit organization committed to educational, social, cultural and environmental causes. Right from planning stage, the prime focus group for the college has been the students coming from rural or semi urban areas, with little or no exposure to good quality education and with limitted resources. That focus has continued to guide Paragon, and despite its tremendous success in the span of two yearsand the abiding values it sticks to, Paragon has attracted students effortlessly from 'elite' institutions of the adjoining area, the collegecontinues to be dedicated to the cause of those for whom it meant to be.
