St. Joseph's Community College was founded in 2005 by the Society of Jesus and shares a campus with St. Joseph's Indian High School in Bangalore, India. Its focus is on employability skills for those who are not pursuing a university education.

History[edit]

Fathers of the Paris Foreign Missions Society opened a school for European boys on Museum Road in 1904 after a few decades opened a school for the native Indian Catholics. They established an Indian boys boarding school at St. Joseph's College of Commerce on Brigade Road. In 1972 this St. Joseph's Indian High School moved to its present campus.[citation needed]

In 2010 the College courses were all certified by Indira Gandhi National Open University, and since 2013 further diploma courses were certified by the University Grants Commission.[citation needed]
