This is the first institution to be formed on the Vidyalaya campus in 1930. The institution was founded by Dr. T S Avinashilingam  with an investment of Rs. 5.75 and one Harijan boy on its roll. Indeed, a small beginning for this great achievement stands materialized today as a vast educational and spiritual centre. While studying in college, Dr. T S Avinashilingam met Swami Shivananda, a direct disciple of Bhagavan Sri Ramakrishna.  It was from Swami Vivekananda that Swami Shivananda absorbed the idea of the prime importance of education for the revival of India. The ‘sacred touch’ of Swami Shivananda – as Dr. Avinashilingam later described it – awoke in him the necessary strength and vision for his future mission in the field of education. Mahatma Gandhi laid the foundation stone of the Vidyalaya in 1934.
