NDA is not just about men who have achieved greatness in peace or war but is about the indomitable spirit of all those who have been enriched by its ethos and who in turn have left behind a part of their souls to make it the wonderful, vibrant and much admired entity that it is today. It is to impart combined training to Officer Cadets of Army, Navy and Air Force. NDA provides the highest standards of focused training in the professional, intellectual, physical, and leadership spheres as well as moral and ethical grooming to cadets. In doing so, it makes use of innovative concepts, technologies, corporate and modern practices with a view to providing the Armed Forces, competent potential leaders with high standards of integrity, capable of leading troops to victory.
All the cadets joining the NDA after their 10+2 Examination, are trained in the Academy for three years culminating into graduation in B.A/B.Sc. or B. Sc. (Computer Science) degree of Jawaharlal Nehru University. Apart from academic training they are also trained in outdoor skills, like Drill, PT and games. The emphasis in NDA is on character building, esprit-de-corps, mental and physical robustness, leadership and a sense of keen observation. NDA has an excellent infrastructure for all-round training of cadets and vast array of facilities like spacious and well maintained classrooms, well equipped labs, two Olympic size swimming pools, a Gymnasium, 32 football grounds, polo grounds, a cricket stadium and a number of squash and tennis courts. The academic year is divided into two terms, viz. Spring Term (January to May) and Autumn Term (July to December). Here a cadet has to undergo training for six terms before he passes out from NDA.
