Shall we move on to relish the moments of Kalai Kaviri?.Kalai Kaviri College of Fine Arts is the first of its kind in Tamilnadu offering Degree Courses both in Dance and Music, and hails from its parent Institution Kalai Kaviri , the Arts & Communication Centre for the Catholic Diocese of Tiruchirapalli, Tamilnadu , India. Kalai Kaviri is dedicated to reach the people with spiritual, social development and human values, and to promote the cultural arts of our land. Kalai Kaviri strives to achieve this aim through Communication Media Activities like Radio Broad Cast, Audio Cassettes, Sound Slides, Audio Studio (with Digital recording facility) Video (Canopus DV Storm XA' Plus Digital Video Editing Studio) and Cultural Activities like Stage Drama and Dance Troupe, Cultural Awards and Rolling Shields for Artists and Schools respectively.The Professional Dance Troupe travels all over Tamilnadu and other regions of India, and also abroad, as an Ambassadors of Love, Peace and Indian cultural arts, benefiting people of all age groups, beyond the barriers of caste, creed, community, territory and language.
The publication of "Yesu Kaviam", the Tamil Epic, on the life of Christ written by Poet Laureate Kannadasan in 1982, with 3,08,000 copies in six major editions, is a historical contribution of the centre to Tamil literature and the Church. The centre considers it as a memorable event when the honourable Chief Minister of Tamilnadu Dr.M.G.Ramachandran himself, on behalf of the Tamil speaking world, received the first copy of "Yesu Kaviam" on 16 January 1982, in Tiruchirappalli Eager to promote the traditional arts through systematic training, Kalai Kaviri started a Dance School in 1983 offering Part-TimeDance (Bharathanatyam) Course. Further, Full-time Dance Courses and a Music School offering Part-time Courses in South Indian Classical Music were started in 1988. In 1990, Full-Time Bharathanatyam Diploma Course was affiliated to the Bharathidasan University which authentically recognized the high standard and quality of training offered here. Affiliation to the full-time Vocal, Veena Violin and Mirudangam Courses by the Bharathidasan University followed in 1992. The full-time Post-Diploma Course in Bharathanatyam also was affiliated to the University in 1993. Considering the professional background of 24 years in offering systematic training in Bharathanatyam and South Indian Classical Music, particularly 6 years in offering University Diploma and Post Diploma Courses, then honourable Chief Minister of Tamilnadu, Dr.J.Jayalalitha upgraded Kalai Kaviri as a College of Fine Arts . This came into effect by a Government Order dated 10 May 1996. Subsequently, the college was affiliated to the Bharathidasan Universiy, Tiruchirappalli. Kalai Kaviri College of Fine Arts was inaugurated on 10 August 1996.The college was accredited with 'A' Grade by NAAC in March 2007 and enjoys the minority status from August 2007. The College aims at preserving, promoting and popularising the cultural treasures of our mother land among people of all creeds and communities, particularly the socially backwards, and to train the younger generation in the divine arts of Dance and Music order to build them up in spiritual strength and self-discipline.
The Institution trains the students to make them full-fledged professionals with creative and leadership talents.

Master's Degree in Fine Arts (MFA), is being offered by the college from the academic year 1999-2000 in Bharathanatyam (Dance) and in South Indian Classical Music (Vocal, Violin, Veena and Mirudangam). The greatest achievement of the college, was the starting of a Research Department to offer Ph.D. programme in Dance and Music . M.Phil in music was started in 2008.
(Full- Time & Part-Time). This is the rarest academic height that could ever be reached by a traditional art like Classical Dance of Tamilnadu (Bharathanatyam) which has so far been nurtured only through Gurukula (non- formal training).

Karunanidhi , raised it as a Government Aided college from 18 August 2000 .
