The Schools are located at Carmel Nagar, a picturesque valley in Elagiri Hills, Tamil Nadu, at an altitude of 4100 feet. The temperatures range from 15-30 degrees Celsius. Elagiri Hills is midway between Chennai (formerly Madras) and Bangalore, well connected by road, 20 km uphill from Jolarpettai Railway Station and 30 km from Tirupattur Bus Station (Vellore District). The nearest airports at Chennai and Bangalore are 3 hours by rail and 4½ hours by road. The 25-acre school campus is flanked by the border of reserve forests, situated in a valley surrounded by hills in a beautiful, natural setting undisturbed by pollution in a place of quietness and serenity – truly, an unmatched centre of learning.
In the years past, the ICSE and CBSE streams have held sway over other educational streams in India. With changes in the educational system and the rise and development of technology, the State Education Boards have quickly changed in the 1990s and in the 21st Century to meet the rapidly changing demands of society much quicker than the national boards on education. To be current in our education of the students at Samaritans, the schools follow the syllabi of the Tamil Nadu State Board of Education.
The positive impact of the state education system on our students is evident in their success in their courses, as well as their choice of careers in Information Technology, Medicine, Engineering and Computers, to name just a few.
