Somlawar Academy was established in 1911 by late G. K. Alias Annasaheb Somalwar. He was a born teacher. His methods of teaching were observed by the then British education officers who described him as an “Experimentator” in imparting education. Gradually his mission was joined by his four sons late L. G. Somalwar, late P. G. Somalwar, late V. G. Somalwar and late M. G. Somalwar. Due to their tireless efforts the institution grew up and earned name in entire state of Maharashtra. The students produced by the institution are holding high profile position in the country as well as abroad.
In 2011, the institution celebrated its Centenary. Late Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam Sahib was the Chief guest. During our contact with him for inviting him as the Chief Guest, he told us that he had already met with the students of our school during his visit to NASA and readily accepted our invitation.
It was the dream of late V.G. Alias Bhausahib Somlawar, President of the Society to have a provision to educate the students right from KG to PG level. His dream came true when in 1997 Nikalas Mahila Mahavidyalaya was established specially for girl students. With a vision of educating girls for professional field college introduced courses like Cosmetic Technology, Textile Science, Interior Design, Fashion Design. In a small span of time the college earned good name due to the best teaching and best educational atmosphere. The students after completing the courses are getting good jobs in renowned industries which have made them to become self independent. We are getting full cooperation from all factors of education. This all is due to the blessings of Sant Nikalas Maharaj, our Gurudev.
