The college was started as a residential institution in 1996. The buildings initially being used by the college were actually constructed by the Pakistan Scouts Association in coordination with the Government of Pakistan for Bosnian refugees being displaced in the Bosnian War. However, due to certain circumstances the refugees never came. The buildings were then allotted by the Scouts Association to build a school.

There are well established science laboratories with an audiovisual laboratory as well. There is a state of the art library for reference purposes.
