Navodaya Vidyalayas are schools with a mission and philosophy. They are founded on the belief that education is intrinsic to human development. Fostering excellence with equity are the precepts through which Navodaya Vidyalayas seek to fulfill a major objective of Independent India: Education on an equal footing to those denied access to quality education: girls, children of SC and ST communities and rural children.

Rural education is sought to be brought to the forefront in Navodaya Vidyalayas. Setting and sharing the pace and goal of excellence in school education in the districts in which they are located are among the important objectives of Navodaya Vidyalayas.

National integration through education, integration with the immediate neighbourhood through pace setting activities and integration with regions other than one's own through school exchange programmes are some of the other goals on the charter of Navodaya Vidyalayas.

Development of leadership qualities, personality development, promotion of team spirit, understanding and appreciation of India's composite culture and heritage, adventure, sports, scouts and guides & NCC activities and computer education are sought to be fully integrated into the calendar of school activities so that to the objective of excellence with equity is achieved.
