His Holiness Sankaracharya Sri Chandrasekharendra Saraswathi Mahaswamigal had the vision of reviving the Gatikasthana (traditional University of Kanchi as Nalanda in the north) through modern temples of learning. In addition to a number of Patasalas (Vedic Schools) run by Sri Sankara Mutt, the first of its kind being SRI SANKARA ARTS & SCIENCE COLLEGE, founded to provide quality higher education to the rural folk and to promote among the youth,the highest and loftiest ideals that constitute the essence of our culture.
Since its inception in 1991, the college has seen phenomenal and qualitative growth.

The founder of our college, Sri Jayendra Saraswathi Sankaracharya is a great visionary who visualized the improvement of the educational standards of this area, by making this Institution the epicenter of development by providing affordable education to the masses. With a vision to revive the scholarship and research existed in the hoary past in the Kanchi Gatikasthana, the Swamiji also envisaged an ambitious future for this institution in keeping abreast with the scientific and technological developments and social changes. Kanchipuram, a temple city, one of the seven heavenly abodes in India, is surrounded by socially and economically backward villages and the people of these villages are depending upon agriculture and weaving.
Hence the college takes up on itself the two-fold responsibility of achieving individual and collective development of the population as a whole on the one hand, and of securing the educational advancement of the backward and marginalized sections of the community on the other. National Development is envisioned through the upliftment of the society in the backward villages of this district by imparting knowledge and inculcating values - moral, culture and ethical, to mould responsible citizens with merit and caliber, discipline, dedication and devotion.
The College aims at delivering quality education for the integrated development of the personality of each and every individual student entrusted to its care. The proper integration of theoretical and practical training which the University education envisaged is modulated by moral values so that a homogeneous society upholding faith in God, democratic values, service attitude, and dignity of the human individual along with transformation of the society as a whole with emphasis on solidarity and brotherhood of man.
The College by nature is value-oriented, preserving its time-tested traditions, respecting elders and authority, facilitating and rewarding outstanding individual performance. Raising above parochial considerations of party politics, caste and creed, community and religion, the College leaves no stone unturned in fulfilling the mission of reviving educational standard existed in the past, in the Gatikasthana of ancient Kanchi by imparting quality education marked by excellence to its students through efficient and effective teaching, by undertaking extension activities, social programmes, by providing broad-based training in personality development, arts, science andtechnology and by offering Value Education.
