The Monastery is privileged and fortunate to have a well-established modern Secondary School functioning from Class I to X th, with CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) affiliation.
The school has a regular annual strength of over 700 novice student monks, teachers and staffs.
The school imparts modern academic education from primary to high school level, like any other modern school in the exiled Tibetan community in India.
It is here, where the young novice on being initiated into the Monastery, have the privilege to study at the primary and high school education. Besides the benefit of formal academic education, the pupils also have the benefit of Tibetan language, literature and history education at the school level. This has tangible advantage in their pursuance of Monastic course of Buddhist Text and Philosophy.
This privilege of formal school education is a first of its kind in a Monastery and in the history of Tibetan monastic culture.
The present new Sera Jey Secondary School is founded under the able leadership of Dr. Tenzin Sherab, the then school Principal who dedicatedly strived to develop from the one time small primary school to the present - a well-developed modern school, registered and affiliated to CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) of Government of India.
A three-member committee with Principal as the chief executive and administrative head on academic and educational affairs, and two Directors as the chief financial and development administration head, are elected by the Monastery's Governing General Body.
The school faculty has the necessary academic, physical and personal development curriculum and activities, and a team of resourceful and dedicated teachers under the leadership of their committed Principal.
The pupil on joining the Monastic University after graduating from School, the acquired knowledge on basic general science, humanities and the language of English creates a vital resourceful mind and knowledge in their long journey ahead in the pursuit of Buddhist Text and Philosophy.
Hence, great hope and future lies in Sera Jey Secondary School and its pupils.
