Ignus is a training institution that focuses on providing the best high school and pre-university education to students in smaller cities of India, thereby giving them an equal opportunity to excel at national level entrance examinations


Launched in May 2014, Ignus’s founding members have all studied at top institutions in India. Our vision is to empower talented students by providing them with world-class education facilities in their hometowns that help them in getting through the top universities in the country. We expanded our education facilities to guide high and middle school students in understanding their Mathematics and Science concepts better using the ‘learning by doing method’, which has helped them immensely as they moved into their Pre-University years.


Ignus is the perfect blend of two very important teaching methods in today’s world – technology and classroom. While it makes the most of modern-day technology by providing its students with online classes, concept videos, sample questions, regular tests and feedback - all available to them on their personal electronic devices; it also has teacher-led classroom sessions where students can clear their doubts and interact with each other in a competitive atmosphere. We also take our students for field trips to give them an experience of learning beyond the classroom.


The success of our combined teaching model is reflected in our results - we have students getting into IITs, NITs and BITS every year. More importantly, we are the only institution in the towns where we operate that can boast of these results!


It is important to know that our education model has been designed with utmost care to be able to give these students the best available training facilities at a very affordable cost.


We believe that every student has the ability to do well in a field of their choice, provided they get the right training and opportunities. We take classes in small batches so that students get personal attention and we keep our costs low so that everyone gets an opportunity to excel.


At Ignus, nothing makes us happier than being able to nurture minds and shape lives through our institute!
