Cadet College Ghazi Barotha

Government Ι Boys Ι Cadet 




The establishment of Cadet College Ghazi Barotha had a primary objective of offering high-quality and meaningful education to the youth of Pakistan, with a particular focus on the children of all ranks of the SSG (Special Services Group). The overarching aim was to nurture cadets and shape them into future leaders in both civilian and military domains.

In line with this vision, CCGB was founded in either 2014 or 2015, initially catering to the educational needs of SSG families. However, due to an overwhelming response from the public, the college’s scope expanded to encompass the wider civil society. Presently, the College boasts significant representation from all provinces of Pakistan, fostering a unique environment that encourages interaction among students from diverse cultural and social backgrounds. The admission process is merit-based, allowing students from various categories across the country to participate.
