In 1937 it became a coeducational institution with the integration of the Seventh-day Adventist girls' school from Chichoki Mallian. Steady Growth followed as students came from all parts of the Punjab and northwest India. In 1957 Pakistan Adventist Seminary started offering a two-year Junior (Intermediate) Seminary programme.
