A Brief History of the Association

Established on 15 September 1987, NAPEI represents all levels of private educational institutions in Malaysia. NAPEI seeks to unite all private educational institutions regardless of size. With an initial registration of 26 members, NAPEI’s membership has grown to 61 institutions currently. In line with our government’s vision of promoting Malaysia as a regional centre of educational excellence, NAPEI continues to represent the cause of local private educational institutions with the support from the Ministry of Education and other government agencies.
