About Us  

Kumta is a coastal town in the verdant Konkan region of Uttar Kannada district in  Karnataka State.


The God-fearing townspeople of Kumta have maintained their traditional Indian culture.  It has been endowed with several higher education institutions and is a regional agricultural trade center.  In the 1980s, it was commonly understood that due to a variety of reasons, the quality of the education was in severe decline.  Some of the reasons included, larger class sizes and teachers non-responsive to the needs of the ever-diverse student body. 

To address these shortcomings, several visionary townspeople came together to form the Konkan Education Trust in 1991, with the primary goal of providing an excellent educational opportunity to local students.  The primary school, Saraswati Vidya Kendra started enrolling students in June 1993 and in June 2000 the Colaba Vithoba Shanbhag High School opened its doors to students.  Together, nearly 850 students receive instruction from Kindergarten to SSLC.


In the year 2006 functioning of new  institute D.Ed (Dip. in Education) has been started and in 2008 Saraswati Mhalapp Kamath Agri-Craft and Skill Development Institute been started which makes youth self sufficient to undertake their own work and fulfill their needs by providing training in Craft, Agriculture, Horticulture etc.
