Ryan Group is the realization of a vision. A vision to transform the educational landscape in the country and to make quality education available for one and all.
From humble beginnings to one of the largest privately run educational institutes in the country, the story of Ryan Group is a tale written in spunk, enterprise and a compelling desire for palpable social change.
It was in 1976 that Dr. Augustine F Pinto, a graduate from the reputed Loyola College, Chennai, laid the foundation of this vision. The initial setbacks and challenges were never a concern for this man who had tremendous faith in his dream. It is his commitment, prudence and visionary approach to school education that has made him one of the most venerated figures in the contemporary education sector.
Today, the Ryan International Group of Institutions has over 128 schools spread across 18 states in the country. Not only that, the Ryan Group is working towards establishing its off-shore school campuses and has already a school in operation in the Middle East. The vision that started three decades earlier has now become one of the most formidable success stories of our times.
Dr Augustine F Pinto attributes divine inspiration and guidance behind the spirit of his vision. According to him, “Twenty five years ago, God planted a seed in my heart and directed me to spread affordable, high quality English medium education within Indian society. Finally, our efforts, dedication and vision have helped us establish one of the largest chains of high quality education institutes in the country.”
For his contribution to uplift the education sector in the country, Dr. Pinto was awarded the International Man of The Year Award by the International Biographical Center, Cambridge, UK. He has also received the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Award for Environment keeping in mind his tremendous efforts to raise awareness about it.
Today, the Ryan International Group of Institutions has over 2, 50,000 students and 14,000 teachers carrying his vision forward.
