The TheyagarayaChetty Educational Institution was vested in the hands of the Committee in the year 1931 which was founded by two eminent great souls Pitty Theagaraya Chetty Senior and Sir Pitty Theagaraya Chetty Junior in the year 1897.

The Institution founded Sir Theagaraya College in 1950 and manages Sir Theagaray College Higher Secondary School and TheagarayChetty Primary School.

The College caters Arts and Science, Under Graduate and Post Graduate, courses and also offers Phd research program.

It has several reasons to feel proud of for the alumni are successful in the field of medicine, engineering, education, media, theatre, politics, sports and so on in India and abroad. I have immense pleasure in associating myself with this institution and proclaim with pride that I am an alumnus of this college.

In today’s scenario, with a massive expansion in the field of education there is an urgent need to strive vigorously on global excellence. There is a mushroom of educational institutions leading to hectic competition. Though it may be healthy on certain fronts it is unhealthy when it leads to economic exploitation.

There we differ from others. The main objective is to serve the students of a variety of economic and educational background in the society with an open admission policy at an affordable cost. We aim at sharpening the young minds to think out of the box, eradicate some of the accepted ideas and practices that obstruct progress, provide opportunity to think critically and creatively, initiate innovation and give them a variety of provisions and opportunities to associate and apply in life situations.

Indeed, the achievement is a result of dedication and commitment from the management and sincere involvement of the head of the departments and faculty members and enthusiasm of the students, right from school to college. The progress is an ongoing process. Having taken up as the chairman I assure a positive change in the days to come.

Message from the Principal

While it is important to follow footsteps of role models, it is more important to leave one’s own footsteps. In order to become role models and inspire others, one should posses good habits and characters. These are considered to be the building blocks of excellence. The College years are very vital in this regard. The role of college education is not only to impart skills of any subject in the course of development, but the education which helps the students to become competent and strong individuals.

Here, Sir Theagaraya College, constant and continuous efforts on all quarters are being made with qualified, efficient, dedicated and committed teaching and non-teaching fraternity, under the supervision of the magnanimous Management, to realize the aforesaid objectives by the students, by providing good & quality education. In this context, as a representative of both the college administration and the staff, students & all other stake holders, I request the student community to make full use of the facilities, grab the opportunities and face the challenges ahead of them. In all, the world around want the Students to be wholesome, scholastic and emerge as excellent professionals and responsible citizens.
