With the divine blessings of Ganadhipathi Pujya Gurudev Shri Tulsi and Acharya Shri Mahapragya, to accomplish the wishes and to cater to the needs of the society and to quench the thirst of literacy, Terapanth Jain Vidyalaya Matric HSS, a co educational English medium school was started on 18 th June1990 in Sowcarpet. “The need of the society is like an ocean and the service we render is a mere drop.” We began our journey with 320 students and 10 teachers; today we stand tall of our ceaseless commitment in the field of education with 2400 students, 102 teaching, 5 non- teaching and 22 service staff. The school majestically stands on an area of more than 20,000 sq.ft with a built up area of 65,000 sq.ft. TJV Sowcarpet has 56 well equipped spacious and ventilated class rooms, AV hall and multipurpose hall in the KG block.

Technology spearheads the globe in a fast paced manner. In order to cope with the advent of modern technology, the school has the ensuing facilities.

It is our endeavour to make education a purposeful, meaningful and enjoyable experience. The school follows Samacheer kalvi syllabus with Tamil as a compulsory second language from class LKG to X. The second language for Senior Secondary level is optional. Hindi is being taught as a third language till class IX. In this competitive world, we believe firmly that it is school’s prime duty to foster in its community a life-long love for learning and a sense of responsibility as a Nation builder. Our innovative educational programmes are designed to develop the understanding skills and attitudes of the students. Every TJVian receives individual and personal attention and the maximum comfort possible.

The school strives to achieve peaks of excellence in the academic field as well as in life itself through a variety of Co-curricular and Extra-curriculum activities.

Everything that we have achieved in a quarter of a century due to our sincere participation and support of a large number of people. We pay tribute to all those who have shaped Terapanth Educational & Medical Trust what it is today by their contributions in various ways. We thank all the donors for their financial support till this day.

We are imparting value based education through our schools Terapanth Jain Vidyalaya at Sowcarpet and Pattalam in Chennai. Our mission is to transform a toddler into an educationally sound, ethically upright, morally strong and physically fit personality is evident from our illustrious alumni about 3500 bright young students currently in our school. We are proud of our dedicated, devoted and dutiful teaching and non-teaching staff. Terapanth Educational & Medical Trust also caters to the medical needs of the society through regular medical camps. Mobile dispensary was launched in the year 2008 and till now lakhs of people have been benefitted. We are proud to state that we have our own clinic at Pattalam to treat our pupils and public as well.

We are planning our next project – An International Residential School at Kuthambakkam near Poonamallee. The Trust is planning to extend its wings in International Residential School & Collegiate Education on this land. The development work has been entrusted to Shri Meghraj Lunawat and Shri Nirmal kumar Gadiya. The work is in progress and they have already obtained permission to construct an over bridge from highway to our land. The Trust is confident to start the project in the near future.
