St. Philomena College was founded by Msgr. Antony Patrao who felt that a college in this part of the state would save the people from the inconvenience of moving to distant places for higher education. He set out to realize his dream and the mission was accomplished in the year 1958.
Since its inception, the college has been growing steadily. The quantitative growth has been supplemented by undiluted quality. The college has been imparting higher education to the youth drawn from far and wide. Students are enrolled without discrimination. Msgr Patrao tended the Institution with motherly care. His example was emulated by his successors. Resultantly the College has earned a name by virtue of its disciplined functioning and its achievements in the academic field as well as in the field of sports and games. Based on infrastructure, learning resources and achievements, the College has been re-accredited by NAAC with ‘A’ Grade.
