Absorption of substantial human resource put in a claim for certain requisitions including the educational structure in the forefront for wards of PAF personnel. Education for the children of our manpower had always been a focused objective. Keeping in view transfer, as well as, posting difficulties from one base to the other, PAF established a network of Fazaia Schools & Colleges in 60s. Gradually up gradation from schools to colleges took place, which not only enhanced peace of mind, devotion to duty and loyalty to service of PAF personnel, but also helped a big segment of population residing in the vicinity of PAF bases to avail the facility of educational environment of Fazaia chain. In 1980s, 16 schools were upgraded to intermediate level and in 1990s, 06 Intermediate colleges were raised to degree level to cater the higher educational needs of the wards of PAF personnel. Presently, Pakistan Air Force in a self sustained capacity takes onboard a total of 23 Fazaia Institutions that comprises 06 Degree Colleges, 16 Intermediate Colleges and a Model School.

To manage the affairs of Fazaia Educational chain a separate Directorate of Schools & Colleges was established in 1996. Though comparatively young and burgeoning, it has successfully conducted its role and task in improving academic and administrative expertise of Fazaia institutions. Being cognizant of the cause and effect relationship the Directorate transfigured the teaching learning paradigm from rote to cognitive based teaching / learning by facilitating administration of Fazaia chain.
