The inception of Sri Chaitanya Educational Institutions was the result of a vision rather than the mere inception of an institution. The change of direction given by the Founding Directors, now Mentors, Dr. B. S. Rao garu and Dr. Jhansi Lakshmi Bai garu, to their successful profession in the field of Medicine sparked a turnaround in the approach to education at the Intermediate level. A systematised methodology was introduced that changed the very face of education in Andhra Pradesh, for the better. The then existing system was modified. A fresh chapter began in the Pre-university stream of education in the state, with the introduction of a more professional approach to teaching and staff management.
Sri Chaitanya started its historic journey in 1986 with the inception of a Girls’ Junior College at Vijayawada. And since then there has been no turning back. The credit of changing the very face of Intermediate education goes to Dr. B.S.Rao and Dr. Jhansi Lakshmi Bai – the founder Directors who had a highly successful stint at medicine, but decided to halt mid-way and attend to the need of a change in the educational system back home. A noble thought that influenced lives of lakhs of students over the next few years.
