Overview
 
Located in the culturally vibrant city of Chennai, Sri Kanchi Mahaswami Vidya Mandir was inaugurated on 4th June 2010, with the benign blessings of their Holinesses Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Swamigal and Sri Sankara Vijayendra Saraswathi Swamigal, the 69th & 70th peetadhipathis of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam.
 
This unique school is the largest vedic-modern educational institution not just in India but the world as well.
 
Inspired by the philosophy of His Holiness, Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Swamigal, the 68th acharya of Sri Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, one of the most illustrious peetadhipathis, the Vidya Mandir has a single-minded educational goal.
 
“To prepare its students to stand head and shoulder above the rest, ingraining in them high moral values through Vedic education combined with modern thinking and education. To provide sound physical training and enable them to develop an ability to nurture creativity.”
 
Combination Education
The Vidya Mandir has in one campus Dr. L. M. Singhvi Veda Patashala and a CBSE school. It offers you a choice of two educational systems: the Vedic + CBSE system, or just the CBSE discipline. There are about 225 students enrolled for dual education. The total student strength in 2015 was 850. this year the enrolement is envisaged to reach 1200.
 
In case, you opt for the combination of Vedic + CBSE school, your child will stay in the beautiful hostel. The hostel has contemporary amenities and provides comfortable and safe environment congenial for studies. This is meant only for boys. The faculty for the Dr. L. M. Singhvi Veda Patashala live in the campus, facilitating a more intensive interaction between your child and his Guru, enabling a strong mentoring relationship. This replicates the gurukula system of ancient times.
 
The student attends the Veda Patashala in the early morning and evening hours and attend the CBSE School during regular school hours. He will thus experience the unique combination of traditional instruction in a gurukula style and modern education in a typical class room setting. This balance will help him acquire a holistic education that will form a valuable foundation for his future. It will thus equip him to face a fast changing world through an informed value based approach to life.
 
Modern Facilities
You also have the choice of enrolling your child only in the CBSE curriculum. Here, we give preference to children from the neighbourhood. It will be a non-residential co-education stream.
 
At the Vidya Mandir, your child will enjoy all the modern facilities one can think of to make student life a fulfilling learning experience: An auditorium, a dining hall which can accommodate 600 students at a time, several temples, a gymnasium for physical training, a play ground and a memorial for the Mahaswami of Kanchi, which presides a peaceful environment for the students to reflect.
 
The campus has a Doctor on call for 2 hours Monday to Saturday.
 
You are invited to visit the school at anytime of your convenience. We would be delighted to take you through our institution and facilities. You can fix your visit with a prior appointment by calling us on our contact numbers mentioned in the website.
