Welcome to Our College
St. John's College of Arts and Science is a dream come true for the disadvantaged people along the coastline of Kanyakumari District. Rev. Frs. V. John Bosco and Albin Roby, the founders of this college, have been the trustees of the JVDC Trust (Jan Vriend Development Centre Trust) for the past 12 years to promote higher education among the less fortunate young students of the coastal belt sponsored by Rev. Fr. Jan Vriend from the Netherlands. Fr. Vriend has an ecclesiastical and ecumenical philanthropy to help the poor and downtrodden.
The founders and the patron, Rev. Fr. Jan Vriend, firmly believed that education was the only means of liberating the rural and poor youth socially and economically. By providing them easy access to higher education, they could be put on the path of development and social emancipation, they felt. So, with a missionary zeal, all of them fully committed themselves to the service of providing the best education for children of less fortunate families and founded the college based on Christian values of faith, hope and love.
