Dnyanamata Vidyalaya is a Marathi-medium school and junior college in Sangamner, Ahmednagar Dist. It owes its existence to the hard work of Frs. Rudolph Schoch, John Baptist Thiel, Roder and Zinser. Fr. Zinser’s concept of a school was in the line of the Gymnasium with classical education in Latin and Greek. Fr. Schoch took over from Fr. Zinser, built the school and began enrollments in June 1948. Fr. Thiel introduced agriculture, bought 40 acres of land at various times, of which 29 acres are under cultivation. Fr. Edmund D’Souza started the Junior College in 1976. The schools of the neighbourhood did not compare in quality of education or discipline with Dnyanamata.

The audiovisual room was built in 2009 by the initiative of Fr. Titus Thankaraj SJ. Students are taught English and other subjects with latest technology. The Junior college has LCD projectors for teaching and learning.

The school also avails e-learning from June 2015 with Junior college students. It was started by the initiative of Fr. Titus Thankaraj SJ and Fr. Francis Patekar SJ the principal of the school.
