The Principal's Desk
Sree Chaitanya College of Science and Arts, situated in Habra, North 24 Paraganas, West Bengal was founded in 1956. We are proud to state that with the arrival of this new year 2016, Sree Chaitanya College has stepped into the 60th year of it's glorious service. Our year- long Diamond Jubilee Celebration is scheduled to be inaugurated on Sunday, the 10th of January 2016, by the Hon'ble Higher Education Minister of our state, Dr. Partha Chatterjee. It is a matter of great significance for us that our 2nd cycle of Reaccreditation by NAAC coincides with our Diamond Jubilee.
This educational institution occupies a distinguished status in the higher education map of the district of North 24 Paraganas, as well as of the state of West Bengal. With the passage of time this college has grown in all dimensions. An accomplished and sincere group of teachers and librarians along with a band of dedicated non-teaching staff has always been the strongest asset of this institution.
Sree Chaitanya College was initially affiliated to the Calcutta University from its first academic session of 1956-57. However, with the foundation of the West Bengal State University in 2008, the college came to be affiliated to it. Presently the college offers 14 courses in Honours subjects and 16 courses in General subjects.We have also introduced Post Graduate courses in Anthropology, Bengali and Chemistry. Besides regular courses we also offer Distance Education courses at both Under Graduate and Post Graduate level as a unit of Netaji Subhash Open University.

With this view a number of cells have been established that caters to the extra- curricular requirements of our students.We consider social awareness and commitment to social causes an integral aspect of education. For this, discussions on issues of social relevance are conducted frequently to keep our students informed of the parameters of the changing times.
