Manimekalai-Mohan Dr Manimekalai Mohan | Founder & Managing Trustee, SSVM Institutions

How do you see the journey of the SSVM Group of Institutions since its inception?

SSVM Institutions is a group of schools, dedicated to delivering world-class education to students on all its campuses at Coimbatore & Mettupalayam, offering quality education from K-12 and providing a range of curriculums such as CBSE, Cambridge International, Matriculation (State Board), and NIOS.

The educational journey of SSVM began in 1998 through Shree Sarasswathi Vidhyaah Mandheer, a play school that has grown into a day and residential school affiliated to CBSE. Athma-Seva - a unit for differently-abled children at one of its main campuses was concurrently initiated with a motive to develop vocational skills and prepare them for an independent life. To cater to the educational needs of children from deserving communities, SSVM Matriculation Hr. Sec. School became affiliated with the Matriculation system by making it affordable. SSVM set a benchmark for effectively implementing the CBSE curriculum at Coimbatore through SSVM WORLD SCHOOL, SSVM SCHOOL OF EXCELLENCE, and REEDS WORLD SCHOOL. SSVM also facilitates Open Schooling (NIOS), a flexible curriculum for students who excel in sports, arts, and academics with an inherent focus to pursue their professional interests at a young age.The acclaimed SSVM PREPVERSITY - a NEET/IIT-JEE, CPT, NATA coaching institute demonstrates exemplary achievements and impressive academic results every year along with preparation for AISSE & AISSCE.

To continue building our legacy of providing an all-embracing and international curriculum, the year 2021 also marked the opening of SSVM's new Cambridge International School at SSVM World School, Coimbatore. SSVM's Cambridge campus was designed to cultivate a global-minded student body that is exposed to a broad range of academic and conventional subjects alike.

We are launching “RUH Early Years”, a brand-new early learning centre at the Race Course Coimbatore that will serve kids between the ages of six months and six years. 


Please throw more light on SSVM World School’s Cambridge Curriculum.


The SSVM is a haven of bliss for learners seeking quality education. SSVM World School is also the first Cambridge Early Years centre in South India. This initiative has become an immediate success with the launch of the Early Years and Cambridge Primary programme for children from kindergarten to grade 5.

We currently offer Cambridge Early Years (KG), Primary (Grades 1 to 5) & Lower Secondary (Grade 6) Programs at SSVM World School in Coimbatore through a unique blended learning model consisting of both international and Indian educators who promote an international perspective and instil Indian values in an age when competence and skills are incredibly important.The classes will drive up to IGCSE and A Level in the years to come. 

Our Cambridge wing seeks to create globally competent learners with an expansive exposure to academic subjects including Global Perspectives, French, Spanish and Digital Literacy. Our international educators from the UK, the US, Chile, France and Spain, have helped students embrace multicultural perspectives and insightful knowledge. We simultaneously seek to cultivate a deep respect for our planet with conventional disciplines such as Agriculture, Ayurveda and Yoga in students.

The educators at SSVM emphasize and develop an inquiring mind. By engaging and challenging students with diverse, meaningful activities, the teaching methodology expands every learner's horizon, enabling them to succeed academically and socially. Moreover, learners are encouraged to ask questions, form opinions, make choices and reflect on their work, thus developing their self-worth, self-awareness, and the ability to measure and own their own growth. 

At SSVM Institutions, we ensure that every child is nurtured to develop their self-esteem and autonomy, cultivating their curious minds and preparing them to become global leaders.

What are the innovative strategies adopted by SSVM Residential to hold on to the No.1 ranking among the Boarding Schools? How have you maintained the brand equity so high for so many years?

The importance of education cannot be overstated. The more quality education you obtain, the better your chances in life. To revamp educational approaches, SSVM Residential embraces innovation since its inception in 1998. SSVM has produced all kinds of breakthroughs, innovations, and changes.
