Cadet College Skardu is one of the government recognized Cadet Colleges of Pakistan and unique of its kind in Gilgit-Baltistan. Within a short span of time it has achieved a remarkable success. It would not have been possible if the Government and particularly the Army had not taken keen interest in the educational uplift of Gilgit-Baltistan. There was a dire need of an institution, which could integrate the youth of Gilgit-Baltistan with the rest of the country through quality education and personality development. Keeping this objective in view the Government approved the project of Cadet College Skardu in 1992.
