Admission in Atomic Energy Central Schools/ Junior Colleges

Admission in these schools is restricted to the wards of employees working in the Department of Atomic Energy and its constituent units, PSU and Aided Institutions. A child completing 5 years of age and not completing 7 years as on as on March 31 of the calendar year is eligible for admission in class I for the academic year beginning from April 1 of that year. Children with Special Needs have certain concessions in this regard. Age criterion for admission in other classes is reckoned accordingly. In all these schools, in class I, 25% of the seats are given to the children belonging to disadvantaged groups under Right to Education Act 2009. Admissions under RTE Act 2009 are given in class I only. AEES has its flagship programme i.e., Societal Enrichment and Education Programme, S E E P. This programme is mainly meant for providing free education to the students belonging to disadvantaged groups living near the Nuclear Projects. This is available in the schools located in tribal areas only. The students selected under this programme are provided with not only free education but with uniforms, school books and refreshment money. These students are selected from the students admitted under RTE Act 2009. After admitting the wards of employees working in the Department of Atomic Energy and its constituent units, and students under RTE Act 2009, if there are any seats left, these seats are given to other students under Non – DAE Category. The fee structure for the students admitted under Non- DAE Category is different from that of DAE Category. Every year AEES publishes circulars related to these admissions in the last week of December or January in its website . Interested people can go through these circulars for detailed information and fee structure.
