Noble College in Machilipatnam was founded by Robert Turlington Noble,[1] a European missionary, in 1843. Noble came to Masulipatnam as a missionary in 1841 and stayed until his death. He and his friend Mr. Sharkey opened a native English school on 21 November 1843. That school became Noble College. This school was termed by the head of the Madras Government "The Cambridge of South India." It is one of the first four educational institutions opened in India by the British Government: Noble College can be considered as one of the first five colleges of India.

It is now administered by the Krishna Godavari Diocese of the Church of South India.

Noble College maintains a partnership with the Laubach-Kollege of the Protestant church in Hesse and Nassau (Germany).
