About Vedavalli Vidyalaya

The TCT set up the ‘The Akshaya Vidya Trust’ (AVT) in 1994 towards having a separate vehicle to get into the education space. While AVT acts independently, there are nominees to the Board of AVT from TCT. We started Vedavalli Vidyalaya Senior Secondary School, a CBSE School in 1994 in Walajapet as a service to the children. At that time, there were no other schools with the CBSE in the locality. Catering to a local need for State Board curriculum for XI & XII to enable easier entry into professional colleges in the state, the Vedavalli Higher Secondary School was started in 1999 in the adjoining campus in Walajapet. Another CBSE school was started with the same name in Ranipet in 2003 as a dedication to the Ranipet community. The CBSE schools offer classes from K-12.

The three Vedavalli Vidyalaya Schools, located on two different campuses in Walajapet-Ranipet offer holistic education for the children of this locality. Our campus at Walajapet has a strength of 1370 students and 80 teaching staff. The CBSE school at Ranipet runs with a strength of 760 students and 40 teaching staff.The schools have a good infrastructure and offer a conducive atmosphere for learning. Having been in education for nearly three decades, the schools are known in the locality for child-friendliness and excellent teaching methodologies.


Promoted and nurtured by a progressive group of
individuals from different backgrounds, the schools foster a
thorough understanding of fundamentals in all subjects. Aided by
traditional and modern platforms, they develop self learning skills
through reading, enriching activities and projects.

We also offer adequate exposure to ideas, people and places, promote self
confidence, good communication and leadership skills.

A variety of carefully planned programmes is delivered by the
teachers in academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular spheres to
bring out the best in every child.

With the firm belief that teacher training is the key to delivering the
objectives of the school, the teachers are equipped in periodic
reorientation and training to learn, unlearn and relearn to get
exposure to new trends in teaching, methodologies and to suit the
emerging context.

Fresh candidates are identified and put through rigorous training to
enable them to take up full fledged teaching assignments. Teacher
training is another hallmark of Vedavalli Vidyalaya.

Children have performed well in the Boards, sports, arts and crafts and showcased their talents in different forums and won laurels. They are encouraged to identify and pursue their strengths. Alongside academics extraordinary talent is spotted and is nurtured, with many of them exceling at the national level.

The students get into the courses of their choice for higher education and make their mark in their careers with their communication skills and leadership display. 

The alumni are in a wide ranging array of professions and services: from civil services, sports, medicine, engineering, scientific research, IT, management, law, teaching and what have you.
