It helps to have a teacher’s lineage to venture into an academic-oriented activity that would benefit aspiring students. The name ‘SKYLARK‘ was coined out of a passion for the poems of P B Shelley, an English romantic poet, regarded as one of the greatest lyric and philosophical poets in the English language.
It was the brainchild of academician and visionary, Dr. Solomon Raju Kuchipudi, an Emeritus Professor of English from Andhra University, Visakhapatnam. He co-founded SKYLARK in the year 2002 with the sole aim of assisting aspiring students to make ‘balanced’ career choices, thereby producing individuals who are ‘knowledgeable‘, ‘broad-minded‘ and ‘self-aware‘.
