History[edit]

Little Flower Junior College was established in 1974 by upgrading the High School of the same name in Abids, Hyderabad. The need for the college arose as a result of a change in the Government's education policy. The multipurpose scheme was given up in favor of the Junior college system.

The interest shown by the chief Minister Mr. Vengal Rao, led to the grant of a piece of land in Ranga Reddy District and LFJC began to take shape. There was an initial difficulty in the form of paucity of funds. So LFJC began its life in the school premises itself with two sections, one each of MPC and BPC. The college functioned there for eight years.

Work on the building at Uppal, was taken up in 1980. The late Bro. James Pannivelil was placed in charge, Mr. Srinath Magal was the Engineer and Architect, and the college shifted to its present premises on July 1, 1982. A small auditorium was built in 1989. An additional floor on top of the office block was finished in 1998

Co-education was introduced in 1997.
