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 in starting another institution under the name of Arockia Matha Matriculation at Karumandapam. While serving as Correspondent of R. C. Hr. Sec. School and R. C. Teachers’ Training Institute, he actualized his dreams to start Matriculation Schools on behalf of 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 our founder Rev. Fr. A. Susairaj 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 comprising 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 26 non-teaching staff. Slow learners are given individual and special attention to improve their learning skills, abilities and overall performances.

From June 2018, Mr. Aloysius Leslie Peters assumed charge as the Headmaster and Rev. Fr. J. Sebastian Venni as the Dean of the School respectively.

St. James offers equal priority to Academic Excellence, Spiritual Growth, Moral Education, Social Awareness and Human Formation with the aim of moulding students as holistic and integral personalities.

Three decades have gone by in the history of St. James. However, still we have miles to go and 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 – 2020, I commend them into the Mighty hands of God. May they march forward towards the pinnacle of success keeping in mind our school motto DARE and HOPE.

From June 2018, Mr. Aloysius Leslie Peters assumed charge as the Headmaster and Rev. Fr. J. Sebastian Venni as the Dean of the School respectively.
