They are specifically intended to prepare young students from a very broad range of socioeconomic and linguistic backgrounds to pass the demanding physical, educational, psychological and behavioural standards of the Inter Services Selection Board (ISSB). This is distinct from the purpose of regular cantonment schools intended to educate the children of service members.

Pakistan Education Development Organization, (PEDO; LTD), is a private NGO, run by retired senior naval officers from Pakistan Navy and Education Directorate who joined hands under the charismatic leadership of Commander (R) Muhammad Sibtain Shah, who had already been the pioneer founder of Private sector Cadet Colleges in Pakistan since 1996. Cdr. (R) Sibtain Shah, during his service in Pakistan Navy, held key positions in the Education Directorate of Pakistan Navy and initiated many new projects in Education for Pakistan Navy, while being assigend the task to run and establish curridculum and administration setup for projects like Bahria College Islamabad, Bahria University in 1996. Mr. Shah, after retirement had been actively involved in education projects and construction for Pakistan Navy and his company (M/s METCO Engineering LTD) had undertook proje3cts like Bahria College Islamabad extension, Pakistan Navy Model School, Bahria University extension and a number of private boarding schools' projects, which were run under Mr. Shah's assistance.

Mr. Shah, while having a keen interest for education and understanding its importance for the future generations, always believed in imparting quality education to the masses. Discipline plays an important role in a young child's life and it grooms him to become a responsible and humble citizen to serve the humanity.

PEDO LTD, was formed with the intention, by Senior Naval Officers under leadership of Mr. Shah, to cater for quality education in Pakistan. Cadet College Rawalpindi was established in 2005 near Chakri Interchange on Islamabad - Lahore Motorway. A healthy environment requires ample space, specific blocks and a spacious campus with all sports and academic facilities, which was, from the very first day kept in mind by the Management.

This system was first established in the pre-Partition, pre-Independence era in order to support the push to indigenise the officer corps of the British Indian Army, a reward to the social classes that had provided loyal support for the British Empire's war efforts in the 1914-1918 First World War and which in return expected greater opportunities for participation at higher levels.

The very first to be established was the Prince of Wales Royal Indian Military College (RIMC) in March 1922 at Doon Valley which was then in Punjab Province (now the Indian state of Uttarkhand) following the severe difficulties in acceptance and adjustment faced by the first batch of South Asian cadets sent directly to Royal Military Academy Sandhurst in England.

RIMC was lost with the partition of the country and the army in August 1947 and became the Indian Republic's Rashtriya Indian Military College. The first cadet college to be built by the newly established Pakistan Army was the Punjab Cadet College Hasanabdal, Attock District in Punjab in 1954. Faujdarhat Cadet College was built in Chittagong, then East Pakistan in 1958.

In 1922 the British Indian Army also established the King George Royal Indian Military Schools (KGRIMS) at Jhelum and Jalandhar cantonments in Punjab Province for the separate purpose of providing education to the sons of the enlisted men and Other Ranks of the Army. After independence and partition the Jhelum campus was upgraded to the status of a military college and is known as Military College Jhelum.

The expansion of the Pakistan armed forces, and the broadening of the social base of its officers corps from the 1960s onwards has inevitably led to the expansion in the number of cadet colleges and their distribution around the country.
