The network serves over 53,000 students. It has over 3,500 employees and is supported by over 2,000 volunteers. We operate five hostels to enable students from rural areas with little education provision to complete high-quality secondary education, allowing them to go onto university.

The pre-primary programme is based on the internationally recognised HighScope preschool curriculum. From primary onwards, schools follow the Pakistan national curriculum and use, or are transitioning to, the Aga Khan University Examination Board.
