St. Augustine’s Forane Church has been an icon that spearheaded the academic and cultural activities of the locale by founding 4 Schools as early as in the 19 century.

The college has made every effort to be compassionate and sensitive to the marginalized and the people in need. This has been always the unique character of Mar Augusthinose where the mind is adorned with rich lore and each tutored faculty’s yearning is sated and taught to seek more. Mar Augusthinose College, since its inception in 1995, focuses on utilizing the historic opportunity of expansion for deepening excellence and achieving equal access to quality higher education. Located at Ramapuram, in the premises of a Forane Church with stupendous and unique architectural splendor, Mar Augusthinose College shines as a beacon of light, radiating the benign grace of the Holy Mother and St Augustine.
