”Education gives wings to fly”

- Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam

Education is the most powerful tool that brings in changes in everyone’s life. Rightly, with this noble and lofty vision, the Philanthropist Kalaithanthai.Sri.Karumuttu Thiagarajar Chettiar, the textile wizard, seeded the educational service in Salem with the humble beginning of “Thiagarajar Polytechnic College” in 1958.

This seed had its rapid growth and blossomed into a magnificent tree with the relentless and magnanimous services of Sri.M.S.Chockalingam. He turned the institution to be a forerunner in technical education with its rich academic standards and is being celebrated as the most respected institution across the nation with 50000+ Alumni occupying top ranks in various multinational forums. His ardent desire in offering higher education led to the establishment of “Sona College of Technology” in 1997.

Following the footsteps of the two legendary personalities, the educational legacy of Sona Group is being multiplied under the vibrant leadership of Sri.C.Valliappa, the Chairman and the Vice Chairmen Sri.Chocko Valliappa and Sri.Thyagu Valliappa, whose dedicated services with commitment has made SCT, the first offshoot of Sona Group to root strongly with its emergence as a top ranking engineering college in the nation and offers Under Graduate, Post Graduate and Doctoral programmes in engineering, technology and business,recognized by SIRO with 30+ research centers catering to the needs of society.

The relentless quest along with the public demand instilled great passion in the minds of the Chairman and the Vice Chairmen to establish yet another offshoot “Sona College of Arts and Science” in 2017 which has become the most sought after Arts and Science college in and around Salem district within a very short span of its inception for its excellent quality and standards.

During this splendid and untiring journey of Six decades, the Sona Group takes pride in polishing more than 75000 diamonds, who uphold the name and fame of the Institutions by serving the needs of the world in various sectors.

Having become self-reliant and progressive in offering higher education, the Sona Group now intends to enlighten the uncut diamonds, the young children with its new venture the “Sona Valliappa Public School”.

The school aims to offer right and holistic education with love and care to nurture, develop, enlighten and empower the future citizens of tomorrow and stands up with its motto “Nurturing Young Minds with Innovation!”.
