Cadet College Kohat is a military high school for boys of grades 8th through twelve. The high school is located on the outskirts of Kohat, Pakistan.
In Pakistan, Cadet Colleges were introduced by late Field Marshal, Muhammad Ayub Khan and these were established at Hasanabdal, Kohat and Petaro.
In pursuance of the recommendations of the Commission on National Education of the defunct Government of West Pakistan decided to establish another Cadet College to be the third in the province.
In recognition of the military services of the people of the area, Mr. Fateh Khan Bandial, the then Deputy Commissioner, Kohat, requested late Malik Amir Muhammad Khan, H.Pk, H.Q.A., the then Governor of West Pakistan that a Cadet College should be established at Kohat. Mr Fateh Khan acquired 144 acres (0.58 km2) of land for the college. The foundation-stone was laid by late Malik Amir M. Khan, on 19 April 1964.
The college aims to provide quality education on egalitarian basis to all segments of the society on merit and competition. It is our firm conviction that education is an all-embracing activity, encompassing all aspects from class-room to play-fields, from play-fields to pen and from pen to rostrum to produce good citizens and leaders. We have endeavored to create congenial atmosphere and conducive environment, enabling the cadets to grow and flourish and to develop their potentials and talents to become the future leaders of the country. There is a triangle of education consisting of academics, curricular and co-curricular activities, laying special emphasis on character building.
