The college is celebrating its Silver Jubilee, the journey of glorious twenty five years of academic excellence and the social responsibilities. The college seeks to impart value based education and nurture young minds through maintaining a holistic and congenial academic atmosphere.

The scintillating natural scenario and amalgamated tribal culture has given the exclusivity to Sonapur College. It has cherished enduring goals of youngsters who sought to engage in the modern competitive scenario of higher education system which has initiated certain changes into the class and caste structures in the social and economic context of education. We have committed faculties and dedicated staff willing to impart their teaching skills and help students in the critical juncture of their life. The college has been accredited by NAAC with B-Grade (CGPA – 2.58) in its Second Cycle of Assessment.
