Message From Principal Desk (Mrs Shobha Menon)

It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.These words of Charles Darwin best capture one of the greatest challenges of our times.

Responsiveness to change and openness to experience are probably the most valuable assets of individuals and organizations today as we attempt to find stability and survive in a world which is transforming itself every second .As an educational institution our challenge is even bigger as we use past experiences to prepare the present for the future.

Every year so many young minds pass out of our portals ready to respond to a changing world even as so many enter our portals hoping that we will prepare them to take on the world in a few years from now..The one question we are constantly asking ourselves is are we doing enough, enough to make them capable of fulfilling their dreams.

At Valia College it is our endeavor to be responsive to the changing needs of our student community, to give our students the best in all respects so that they are future ready. We strive to create a generation of young minds who dare to dream big ,are open to new experiences  and are willing to work hard to fulfill these dreams. Most young minds dream of a successful career and we equip them to turn these dreams into reality. While we realize and accept our limitations we are courageous enough not to be held back by these as we strive to create a better tomorrow for our students.
