Sishya is a premier institution providing quality education in Chennai. Founded by K I Thomas, it began as a nursery-cum-preparatory school in January 1972.
In 1974, the council for Indian School Certificate Examination, granted the school affiliation, thereby enabling it to present its first batch of students for the ICSE examination the following year. In 1986, the second part of ICSE was added.The KIT Thomas Educational Society, an irrevocable Trust now owns and controls the management of the school.

In 1975, the school was shifted to a five acre premises in Ramalayam Annexe.A new block constructed in 1984, now houses the Senior School and the Laboratories. In 1989, the Junior School cum auditorium block was constructed.In 1991, the pre-school complex for classes LKG, UKG and Std I was inaugurated. These cottages built in a novel architectural style are set in sylvan surroundings with a kiddies playground. It has been named the Grace Cherian Memorial ITC Pre-school block. In 1994 the playground was completely re-laid and resurfaced and converted to facilitate athletics and games even in the rainy season.
In 1998 the Thangam Thomas Memorial building was inaugurated. It houses a state of the art library and Art Department, classrooms for the stds XI and XII, an additional staff room and an audio-visual room. The school has been continuously upgrading and introducing new facilities without significantly increasing student strength.Sishya has always sought to achieve total development of each pupil, with emphasis on learning and co-curricular activities. In order to ensure that each child receives his fair share of individual attention, the enrolment in each class is limited to 35.

The quality of education imparted is indicated by the achievements of former students of Sishya many of whom have already excelled themselves in many fields.


The child must be 3 years old on December 31st of the year prior to that for which admission is sought for.Parents may register for admission in advance. It is advisable to do so as soon as the child is born, in view of the small numbers admitted.
