Minerva Academy has seen many successes since its establishment in 1955. Many of our students have gone on to become officers and have earned great laurels and honour for the entire nation and their own regiments. Many of them have won prestigious awards and reached the highest ranks in the armed forces, whereas, others have left us with heroic and inspirational tales of bravery in battle. These men were special and will always be remembered as heroes by the country.
Minerva Academy is proud to have contributed in their efforts to be commissioned in the Indian armed forces.
