Vissanji Academy is an English medium co-educational day school affiliated with the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE). The founders recognized the importance of educating the girl child in a newly independent India when the female literacy rate was 8.9 percent and ‘women empowerment’ and ‘gender equality’ were terms unheard of; thus Lady Vissanji Girls Academy was born in 1963. From a modest beginning it has traversed five decades and emerged as a co-educational institution- Lady Ratanbai & Sir Mathuradas Vissanji Academy. The institution has distinguished itself upon the achievement of each milestone with fortitude and a vision firmly grounded in benefiting society at large.
