Chairman's message

G. V. Selvam - Chairman

Welcome to Vellore International School!

Having established an Engineering Institution, VIT, with over 50,000 students from 50+ countries, which has been recognized as an Institution of Eminence by Govt. of India, we decided to create a modern international school in Chennai with state of the art facilities, based on Indian culture.

Now, VIS has taken shape in 35 acres of green surroundings amidst 1500 acres of reserve forest area, yet close to Chennai, within 5 km from major IT parks.

Our vision is to inculcate family values, good conduct and character, through holistic learning and modern ICSE and IGCSE Cambridge education systems.

At VIS, we have the best and experienced teachers drawn from all over the world. Each student will be groomed as an Independent thinker with the realization of team spirit. We believe in nurturing our children by identifying their strengths and talents, and helping them channel their efforts to succeed in what they are passionate about. Our curriculum and teaching methodology provide great emphasis on flexibility and adaptability.

We plan to have a diversity of students drawn from India and rest of the world. At VIS, we recognise the vital role of arts and co-curricular activities in the development of our children. Hence, we have built excellent facilities and also tied up with leading centres and eminent personalities to teach and train art, music, dance, drama, reading, debating, various individual and team sports, to name a few.

We invite you to visit our campus and have a first-hand feel of Vellore International School.
