Every new beginning is a wonderful opportunity to look into the past, and plan for the future. A new academic year affords an opportunity to plan for the future having considered our past and keeping in focus our long term and short term goals.
Empowered by the self emptying love of God and inspired by our Mother Foundress Claudine Echernier to educate the youth, our sisters dreamed of starting an institution to envision a just and harmonious society where all people live life in its fullness thus nurturing persons to be well integrated who in turn become agents of societal change with the goal to form persons of character, conscience, commitment and competence who having enabled to face the challenges of life in the changing scenario are sensitive to the needs of the poor and the marginalized and evolve as dynamic transcendent leaders of tomorrow.
Holy Cross Home Science College, Thoothukudi, established in 1975, is administered by the society of the Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod, Madurai Province. The college is affiliated to Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, Tirunelveli. It was reaccredited with 'B' grade by NAAC.
The college has grown by leaps and bounds over the past 42 years and molded thousands of young rural women into enlightened and empowered women as potential agents of social transformation. Cherishing the 42 years of the past invincible record and owing it all to the contributions made by the simple and committed staff who endeared to celebrate the reason for its existence, the college feel proud to see the progress it has made in the past.
The dimension and quality of education keep on changing with time. While imparting quality education at an affordable cost, the institution focuses on blending human values and ethics with global competence in the contemporary universal scenario. Our college caters to the higher educational needs of the first generation graduates who hail from socially and economically marginalized communities. Educational intervention through our college has made significant social impacts on the young girls.
An institution of progress cannot any longer be an island into itself and with the great resource that our alumnae are, spread across the world. We are aware of the tremendous possibilities for networking in our efforts to take our intuition forward. We have a competent and committed faculty who collaborate with the management to form women of competence, conscience and commitment thus to dedicate ourselves to the mission of offering quality education to the young girls.
