St. John’s College of Education is the first Co-Educational training College which is started in 2009 after the bifurcation of Diocese of Tirunelveli. “Joyfully Enrich, Enhance and Enlighten” is our College Motto.
As a Christian Minority Institution the primary aim of this institution is to train the budding youth teacher-trainers in Christian values and principles with the love of wisdom and knowledge and a broad vision of national development into committed teachers. The ultimate aim of this institution is to mould the Teacher-trainees for the greater mission of social change and the cause of social justice.
The College is situated in pleasant and natural surroundings. The College will admit boys and girls without any discretion of caste or creed. All the students are expected to learn joyfully and get themselves enlightened and enriched in order to enlighten and enrich the society.
We would like to mention here with pride the Memorandum Of Understanding signed between our college and Bishop Grosseteste University, London, United kingdom on December 2011 that would pave the way for promoting academic, cultural links and also research projects.
Our Academic performance
As we step into the Eleventh academic year of our college, looking back with profound gratitude, we offer Praise, Glory and Honour to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ for the manifold blessings showered upon our College right from its inception in the year 2009.
St. John’s College of Education, Palayamkottai is an additional feather to the cap of the TDTA, that was approved by National Council for Teacher Education, New Delhi in the year 2008 and affiliated to Tamil Nadu Teacher Education University, Chennai in the year 2009. Owing to the tireless and dauntless endeavours of our revered former Bishop the Rt.Rev.Dr.S.

Now under the patronage and chairmanship of our revered Bishop in Tirunelveli, the Rt. Rev. Dr. J. J.
