Welcome to Sterling College of Arts, Commerce & Science

About Us


National Centre for Rural Development (NCRD) Pune, is a non-profit organization registered under the Society’s Registration Act 1860 & Bombay Public Trust Act 1950. The organization was established in the year 1991 in Pune, with a mission of Rural Development. The NCRD realized that time, if rural area is to develop, the rural people must get proper education through regular schools and educational institutes in the localities where they stay. And hence NCRD decided to establish educational institutes in rural areas.

Therefore, a school was started during the year 1994 in Ambegaon Taluka of Pune district to provide basic education to the rural children. Ambegaon Taluka during that period was undeveloped and was rural based. The Taluka, in spite of being close to the industrial area of Pimpri – Chinchwad, remained industrially backward due to restrictions on establishing industrial units in the proximity of the Giant Meterwave Radio Telescope (GMRT) set up in the area. Hence farming was the only source of livelihood for the people of this area. Even to make agriculture profitable and economically viable, quality education is essential. Hence NCRD gradually started more number of schools in the hilly areas of the Taluka to facilitate easy access to education for the rural children.

NCRD gradually expanded its horizon and entered in the field of higher education in satellite city of Navi Mumbai with undergraduate courses in commerce & Pharmacy and post graduate courses in management & computer. NCRD presently imparting education to more than 11000 students from K. G to P. G through it’s various institutions located in Pune district and in Nerul, Navi Mumbai

Message from Chairman

Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire - William Butler Yeats.

Dear Visitor,

Education is not only the means of building a lucrative career or getting a high status job in the society. It is something more than these. Educating yourself also means of raising your moral and intellectual standards. Although the modern education system seems to be shadowed by internet and other modern ills, yet I am sure that deep-rooted values of our culture have and will always make it the best in the world.

The Sterling College of Arts, Commerce & Science aims to build holistic system of education, full of knowledge, backed by values, strengthened by the information technology and looking forward to a very bright future. I would like to extend a warm welcome to Sterling Family. May your journey with us be full of knowledge, exploration and value additions
