The proposal to start a new Catholic college in the Archdiocese was first discussed at a meeting of educationists called by Archbishop Simon Pimenta at Archbishop’s House on 10 March 1979. It was felt that a new Catholic college was needed in the suburbs as there was no such college offering courses leading to B.A, B. Sc and B. Com degrees. Besides there were so many Catholic schools under the direction of the Archbishop and the number of colleges was rather small. At the subsequent meeting of the same committee called by Archbishop held on 27 September 1979, it was decided that a Catholic college be started at Bandra and the Vice-Chancellor be contacted to ascertain the feasibility of such a college. Bandra was chosen for this college because of the Catholic population in this suburb and because St. Andrew’s Parish had a very convenient plot of land which could be used for the construction of a new college. During 1980 much planning was done to study all the aspects to start this college.

As the management of the college has a broad vision of education, it was quick in introducing new degree courses as the Mumbai University opened its doors to various disciplines. We now have in our college besides B.A and B.Com, B.M.S. started in 1999, B.M.M. in 2002, B.Sc. (I.T.) in 2001, B.Com. (Accounts and Finance) in 2003, and this year B.Sc. (Hospitality Studies) degree course was inaugurated and is housed in the school building, thanks to Fr. Vernon Aguiar and Fr. George Athaide.

So far eight principals have guided the college, starting with Msgr. Nereus Rodrigues, followed by Prof. Marie Correa, Sr. Theresa Mathias, Sr. Annette Thottakara, Prof. Lilla D’souza, Prof. Priscilla Fernandes, Prof. A. D. Mascarenhas and the present incumbent Dr. Marie Fernandes. Mr. Johnnie Alves has been the administrator from 1983.

In 1983 the college started with 194 students and progressively increased to its present strength of over 4000 students. The Junior College which was run by the St. Andrew’s School was attached to the college in 1998.

The Motto of our College “Enlighten the Darkness” is inspired by Christ who is the Light of the World and the guiding force behind the college activities under the patronage of St. Andrew, His Apostle.

May this college grow and fructify into an institution of Learning, Culture and Religious Values. These details are retrieved from
