A School that was founded in 1935 became an Institution from 1936 and grew up to a group of Institutions registered under the name ‘Acharya Pathashala’. The tremendous growth of several Schools and Colleges of Acharya Pathashala and its acquisition of a sprawling 105 acres campus at somanahalli made it inevitable for the institution to be converted into a Public Trust which was registered on 16th May 1975 and was renamed as ‘Acharya Pathashala Educational Trust’ during the tenure of Sri.K.M.Nanjappa as its President and Sri.N.Ananthachar as its Secretary. At present, A.P.S Educational Trust is the Main body with 4 schools, 2 Pre-University colleges, 3 degree colleges, a computer center in memory of Prof. N. Ananthachar, along with a fifty year old polytechnic and twelve year old Engineering college. The Engineering college, polytechnic and the Rural High School are located at the Anantha Gnana Gangothri campus at Somanahalli.
The Trust comprises of outstanding personalities representing various social, educational and business areas. Every member of the Trust is an achiever in his/her profession with life time experience managing people and issues. The Trust is looking forward to massive development of infrastructure both in the city and Somanahalli campuses.
