t the turn of the 21st century, the people of Puducherry saw the dawn of ACHARIYA EDUCATIONAL PUBLIC TRUST. It was founded by a young and vibrant educationist, Dr. J. Arawindhan and his beloved mother, Smt. J. Adhilakshmi, with the aim of taking education to new heights and to provide world class education to the people of Puducherry. ACHARIYA under the able guidance of our MANAGING TRUSTEE and CHIEF MENTOR, Dr. J. Arawindhan started various educational institutions in and around Pondicherry.

In July 2004, ACHARIYA EDUCATIONAL PUBLIC TRUST added another feather to its cap by establishing ACHARIYA ARTS AND SCIENCE COLLEGE, affiliated to the prestigious Pondicherry University. Right from its inception, the college continues to get the support and love of the students and their parents.
