At the request of Poojya Mapalagama Vipulasara Himi of Rathmalana Paramadhammachethiya Pirivena, in 1977 the school was declared open by the Education Minister Al Haj Badl-ud-Din as “Sri Sadhissara Maha Vidyalaya”. The first principal was L. P. Wijesundara. The school received the approval to teach science and commerce streams for Grades 10 and 11.
In 1982, due to the influence of the Minister of Education, Ranil Wickramasinghe and Rathmalana Electorate parliament member Lalith Athulathmudali, the “Hena Para primary school” was joined with “Sri Sadhissara Maha Vidyalaya” creating a new school, South Colombo Science College.
Prof. L. A. Vitharana assumed duties as the first principal of the Science College. Prof. Vitharana was able to increase the number of students to 750. He was the pioneer of the school flag and the college song. During his tenure extracurricular activities of the college reached national level.
