WELCOME TO SACRED HEART COLLEGE OF ARTS & SCIENCE

The Brothers Congregation had the vision of starting a college in Dindigul, since the adjacent villages consist of huge student population who are deprived of college education in view of their poverty driven family situation. The institution stands as a beacon of hope for the rural students who otherwise would have been deprived of Higher Education.

The Most Rev. P. Antony Pappusamy D.D; STD, then Bishop of Dindigul realized the poor conditions of the student community and came out with the magnanimous offer of 15 acres of land for the use of Educational Purposes- a noble cause indeed! The property was handed over to the Brothers Congregation for starting educational institutions for the poor students to get access to higher studies.
