The Satellite Campus of the American College is located 15 KM away on Madurai –Natham Highway in Chatrappati. The 60 acre campus has been developed at the foothills of a small hillock which is a part of the Alagar Hills on the Western Ghats. The campus has been developed in eco-centric and environment friendly way in order not to disturb the rich flora and fauna found in and around the campus. The serene atmosphere of the campus is enhanced by the abundant native trees and shrubs. Natural ponds are also located inside the campus. The campus has been designed on the concept of sustainable development with more eco-friendly initiatives planned for the future. Mr. Julian Smith, a Canadian Architect known internationally has designed the buildings in the campus.
In keeping with the rural surroundings, the buildings have been built in the traditional style with verandahs and courtyards which provide ample natural ventilation and lighting inside the spacious classrooms. Adequate classrooms with computer laboratories along with a Multipurpose Resource Centre for seminars and conferences are available. The campus provides students a unique experience to get educated in sylvan and serene surroundings amidst the rural setting undisturbed by hustle and bustle of the city.
As part of its social extension programme, the College has already established Community College at the satellite campus offering vocational courses to cater to the less privileged students who are not in a position to continue studies owing to multiple reasons. To further its commitment towards social responsibility, the College has started undergraduate courses now to cater to students of the rural as well as cities in its satellite campus. It is a boon to the rural students who prefer getting quality education in their own rural surroundings. Students from Madurai and other cities also have the privilege of studying in the tranquil and idyllic satellite campus.
