The first seed of Shri Krishnaswamy Group of Schools was sown on 1965 at Nungambakkam Chennai with only 17 students by our Founder Amarar Thiru M.A. Krishnaswamy. This school has grown into a Matriculation Higher Secondary School recognized by the Government of Tamil Nadu. In order to run more educational institutions efficiently in the city,he formed an educational trust under the name "Krishnaswamy Educational Trust (Regd.)" and started a chain of schools, on self-financing basis, at various parts of Chennai viz., Nungambakkam (1965), Anna Nagar (1973), K.K. Nagar (1979), Ashok Nagar (1984) and Villivakkam (1986).

Our Founder was an outstanding administrator par excellence and set himself as an exemplary to his contemporaries. With an aim of providing quality education for the students he worked round the clock with zeal and zest. Today the institutions have grown in strength by providing quality education to the students. Thiru. M.Balakrisshnan, the eldest son of our founder, has taken over the reign of the trust as the Chairman and Managing Trustee, when our founder reached his heavenly abode in 1988. He has further propelled the growth of the trust by starting three more educational institutions. He made his father's dream come true for women's education by starting Shri Krishnaswamy College of Arts & Science for Women in 2010 at Anna nagar.
