The Saraswati Shinde Education Society was established on 20th September, 1988 by late founder, President & Principal Dr. Abasaheb Shinde who was born in a small village at Patkhal(Satara) in Maharashtra, and had his early education there. He graduated from Bombay University, and got his Doctorate from Shivaji University, Kolhapur.

The primary objectives of the society are to impart quality education to students, to prepare them for examination and for careers of their choice and for playing a meaningful role in the recontruction of our nation. The Society is consecreted to offer instruction in English medium because of academic and practical consideration..

Being a purely English medium college, it is completely committed to developing the communicative skills of students in English language – more so, as our students are largely from the vernacular medium.

We have no cut off percentage of marks for admission of students. No capitation fee is charged and we have our doors open to all who seek admission here.
