Mr Y. Arul, our founder, was born to Mrs P.A.Y. Arulanandhammal and Mr Yagappa Nadar on 24 June 1939. Mr Arul spent his formative years at St.Mary's School, Cuddalore under the love and care of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny. He continued his middle school education at Montfort School, Yercaud run by the Montfort Brothers of St.Gabriel.
The culmination of his efforts here, resulted in Mr Arul being placed fourth in the Anglo Indian Board examination. Further, he continued high school education as Pre University Education at Loyola College, Chennai. After successfully completing his school education, our founder pursued a Bachelor of Engineering degree at Alaggapa University, Karaikudi. Hailing from a family of philanthropists, Mr Y Arul, a man of integrity with a strong emphasis on quality education, always nursed a dream to establish a centre of knowledge. A strong early education paves the way for cognitive and social development of the child and promotes life long learning. With this significant through, our founder brought his dream to fruition with the inception of Toddlers in 2006. This seed has sprouted, flourished and branched out into the Yagappa group of institutions
Yagappa school was started in 2007, conveniently nestled in the heart of the city, but secluded from the hustle of the busy environs. The next logical process was to provide the aspired international exposure for that holistic, overall development of the child. The Yagappa International School, under the aegis of the esteemed University of Cambridge (UK), was founded on the solemn stand to shape the future.
It is only fitting that Mr Edward Arokiaraj, Director of Yagappa group of institutions, can be described as a lifelong learner. His never-ending journey of learning started from Montfort School, Yercaud. He completed the first leg of the journey, his schooling, from RSK School, Trichy. Our director moved onto the second leg of his journey by pursuing a bachelors degree in Commerce and further worked towards a bachelors degree in Law from the University of Madras, Chennai. His thirst for knowledge remained unquenched. Mr Edward Arokiaraj went on to complete a Diploma in Airline Ticketing and Marketing from International Air Transport Association, Geneva, Switzerland. Having an interest in acquiring knowledge in different fields, our director completed a Post Graduate Diploma in Travel and Hotel management from Loyola College, Chennai. Inspired by his father, Mr Y. Arul, our director has always taken the road less travelled by and thus Yagappa group of institutions has flourished.
