This institute was founded by our honorary director Mr.R. Sathya, M.A., M.Sc., M.Phil., as a specialized center with a view to establishing a bench-mark institution to achieve excellence in the toughest competitive exam in the country, i.e. Indian Administrative Service Exam which has now come to be known as Civil Services Exam. Our Honorary director Sathya’s affiliation to the field of IAS examination for more than ten years, both as an aspirant and a teacher has made him understand the nuances of all the three levels of IAS Examination viz., Preliminary, Mains and Interview. Being a post-graduate in both Economics & Geography, our director have been able to provide insightful guidance for this examination. Over this long period, this IAS institute has evolved into a unique fraternity of educators and students striving together, year after year, in pursuit of a single goal. With a passion to excel, the Study Circle has raged with the dynamism of a river which constantly renews itself and yet remains unchanging in its resolve to reach its ultimate destination.
Throughout a journey lasting over ten years, the academy has been at the cutting edge of real learning. Today, it is known as the most successful IAS academy in the country, performing consistently at high levels and has acquired the rare distinction of achieving the highest success-rate in the Civil Services Exam and acquired the status of best IAS academy in Chennai.
The faculty team of the institute is composed of experienced educators, young IAS and IPS officers. In fact, the essence of the functioning of the academy is the fraternal atmosphere it provides, in which the students are groomed by a committed, imaginative and gifted core faculty team. Here, every student experiences creative excitement along with the thrill of adding to his store of knowledge. We treat each aspirant as a personality and not just a student. We approach our task like that of growing flowers; with all the will and skill required for performing such a delicate task. The aim is to set the students free from the rigidities of highly ritualized, bland and indifferent teaching that they have so far experienced in universities; where there is a lot of teaching but very little learning. This is the gap that this coaching institute strives to remove by promoting REAL LEARNING, i.e. learning about learning as the first step: with the ultimate aim of making the personalities bloom like flowers and carry the aroma of freshness of their ideas and creativity wherever they go. It is precise because of this sense of commitment that this academy’s name has become a living legend among the students who are preparing for Civil Services examination.
Our effort is not only to provide the students with a road-map to effective learning but also to reassure them of our motivating company during their journey on the road to success. In nutshell, most of the students feel that the SATHYA’S approach is not only innovative but also unique.
