Religion forms the background of all activities of the Ashrama and, therefore, also of the Vidyalaya. The main source of inspiration is the teaching of Sri Ramakrishna and Swami Vivekananda. No sectarian religion is taught, but care is taken to make the students truly religious. All the same time, Swami Vivekananda's ideas about education are sought to be man-making. This is the ideal that efforts are made to put into effect at Narendrapur. Here students are encouraged and helped to grow in all directions – physically, intellectually socially, morally and spiritually.
