Chembur Karnataka Junior College Of
ARTS, SCIENCE & COMMERCE



Chembur Karnataka Sangha was established in the year 1955 by a band of dedicated social worker of Chembur with the noble objectives of promoting Arts, Culture, Literature and the cause of education.

One of its cherished dreams, that of establishing a cosmopolitan High School in Chembur, became a reality in the year 1966. Originally the school had its humble beginning in two small garages with barely 40 students. It is a matter of no small gratification for us to note that is has now grown into a major educational institution imparting instruction in two media English and Kannada upto SSC.
