SDM PUC was established in 1966, and holds an illustrious track record of having trained students to value based academic excellence ever since. The brainchild of the then Dharmadhikari of Sri Kshethra Dharmasthala, Sri D Ratnavarma Heggade, SDM PUC was initially started at ‘Siddhavana Gurukula’ and later acquired its current form.
SDM PUC is an ardent facilitator of training and preparation of students for various competitive exams in the fields of Science and Commerce. We train students through extra hours for exams like CET, NEET, JEE, KVPY, KCET, NDA, COMEDK, K-CET, and CPT. Our efficiency in the direction is validated by the list of achievers in the national entrance exams.
SDM PUC is located in a rural area of Ujire and is managed by SDME Society under the visionary leadership of Dr. D Veerendra Heggade. We integrate social responsibility, spirituality and cultural orientation with academic excellence and provide students exemplary opportunities to hone their wide range of talents. This makes the pre-university experience at SDM a rather happening and memorable one.
