Who we are?
CHRIST COLLEGE OF ARTS AND SCIENCE was established in 2008 by the Catholic Christian Archdiocese of Madras-Mylapore in Kilachery village, Thiruvallur District in Tamil Nadu, South India, to promote higher education among the rural poor.
The Archdiocese of Madras-Mylapore has a history of over 500 years, of offering spiritual services, social welfare and education to the poor and needy in Chennai city and the neighbouring districts of Thiruvallur and Kancheepuram. The Archdiocese limited itself all this while, to providing school level education for people in its constituency. But today, in a totally changed socio-economic scenario after globalisation, sensing people’s needs and aspirations, the diocese has ventured into providing University education to the marginalized poor.
Admissions are open for BBA, BCA, B.Com & B.Sc.-Computer Science for the Academic Year 2013-2014.
The third Annual Day of Christ College was celebrated on 18th March 2010 with a public function in the open air auditorium of the college.

• The village borders three rural districts of Thiruvallur, Kancheepuram and Vellore and so an apt location to gather and serve the deserving poor of these backward districts.
• Seventy villages around Kilachery are serviced by 20 large Public Higher Secondary Schools with many thousands of poor students who would normally drop out after school education but now can pursue job-oriented higher studies, thanks to Christ College.
