St. James Matriculation Higher Secondary School was founded on 1st October 1982 by the Roman Catholic Diocese of Tiruchirappalli, during the Episcopacy of Most Rev. Thomas Fernando. The visionary of this great historical mission was Fr. A. Susairaj, the Founder of St. James and later in the 1990s, he was instrumental to start another institution Arockia Matha Matriculation at Karumandapam. While serving as Correspondent of R. C. Hr. Sec. School and of R. C. Teachers Training Institute, he actualized his dreams to own Matriculation Schools to the Diocese.

At present, the School is administered by the dynamic guidance of Most. Rev. Dr. M. Devadass Ambrose, the Apostolic Administrator of Trichy Diocese. We remember with gratitude the untiring efforts of Rev. Fr. A. Susairaj, the founder and the remarkable services rendered by Rev. Fr. S. Chinnappan, Rev. Fr. S. Aruldass, Rev. Dr. A. Suresh, Rev. Fr. S. Thomas and Rev. Fr. S. Devaraj.

St. James has a total strength of 3891 students, both boys and girls. The academic needs of the students are well taken care of by 94 dedicated and fully qualified staff of different faculties and 26non-teaching staff. Slow learners are given individual and special attention to improve their learning skills and abilities.

From June 2018, Mr. Aloysius Leslie Peters has been appointed as the Headmaster and Rev. Fr. J. Sebastian Venni as the Dean of the School.

St. James provides equal priority to Academic Excellence, Spiritual Growth, Moral Educare, Social Awareness and Human Formation with the aim of molding the students as holistic and integral persons.

Three decades have gone by in the history of St. James. However, still we have miles to go; miles to go before we sleep. At this juncture, we look back with gratitude and express sincere thanks and appreciation for all those – especially the Diocesan, State and District Educational authorities, who have endeavoured to escort this institution towards the empowerment of the Student Community.

Wishing the Staff and the Students of St. James every success in all that they venture into during this academic year 2019 – 2010, I commend them into the Mighty hands of God. Let them march with DARE and HOPE.

Rev. Fr. T. Eugene
