Education, other than aiming at academic excellence, should touch, chasten and culture all the aspects of the human personality involving body, mind and spirit.
Sri Sankara Vidyashramam takes immense pride in modelling itself on this paradigm of importing the type of education that not only gives the pupils power through knowledge but also fullness and introspective vision through love and spiritual orientation- A process by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased and the intellect is expanded to a great extent.
Sri Sankara Vidyashramam was established in June 1989 by the Indian Education Trust. The School was founded by His Holiness Jagadguru Sri Sankaracharya Swamigal of Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam. His excellency Sri R. Venkataraman, former President of India, is a patron of the school. From a humble beginning, we have come a long way since inception growing both in stature and status. As Shri. R. Venkataraman put it, “Our School now has a magnificent campus, beautiful buildings and open space for the children to play and build up their future”.
The School has classes from LKG to Std XII. The School follows the Matriculation Pattern of Tamilnadu.
The School was upgraded into a Higher Secondary School in June 1992. The present pupil strength of our School is around 2000
The Ashvattha Bolck (Main building) was inaugurated on 4th Jan, 1992 by His Excellency Shri R. Venkataraman, former President of India. The Primary Block came up in 1997 while the K.S.
