History

The Archdiocese of Verapoly is known for its strong commitments in field of education, particularly higher education. The Archdiocese established St.Albert's Group of Education Institutions by starting St.Albert's School in 1892 on land donated by Kochi Maharaja. The school was the first private school for boys in the Kingdom of Kochi at that time. Soon several other institutions were founded by the Archdiocese. In 1946, the reigning Archbishop of Kochi, Most Rev Dr Joseph Attippetty, who was the first Indian Archbishop of the Archdiocese of Verapoly, decided to upgrade the High school to a full fledged college, by starting St. Albert's College, which temporarily functioned in the Boys school campus. In 1950, the campus of the college was shifted to land opposite and St.Albert's boys school remained in its original campus with increased facilities. The original school campus was designed in Grand Victorian architecture in traditional Gothic style. A second structure resembling the original structure was commissioned in 1958 near to the old campus in addition to Pagoda styled buildings for lower classes behind the heritage structure. St. Albert's Group grew with more than 20 schools and 5 higher colleges along with a medical college and nursing home.

In 2005, as part of increasing business developments in Kochi and Kerala as a whole, St.Albert's college started a Business school to create management professionals. The old campus of St.Albert's boys school was fully converted to accommodate business students with all modern facilities. The campus was opened in August 17, 2006.
