In the field of data mining, clustering of educational data has not given much of the importance. Considering the growth of educational field as a business, clustering of educational data must be focused as it can give effective results as in the case of mining enrolled students on the basis of education they undertake. A new algorithm is proposed and implemented by us for clustering educational data. This algorithm is based on a continuous looping procedure. Raw dataset is assigned to clustering algorithm initially and a novel cluster is identified for partition whose cluster high degree is less. Then improvement of degree of cluster is carried out. In this algorithm on the basis of homogeneity, cluster high degree is defined. Experiment is carried out on educational data; which provides good high degree clusters.
