             It was on January 16, 1860 that St. Xavier's College was founded by a small group of Jesuit Father's of the Society of Jesus. What began as a tiny seed grew into a mighty tree sheltering now more than four thousand students every year in its various departments.

             The object of the institution is to impart a full course of liberal education to the youth of the country. As education in the proper sense is not mere learning, but the formation of the whole person, we take special care in the formation of the character of students, inculcating in them values of religion and morality and a strong sense of social justice. It is our hope to build a body of young men competent and dedicated, ready to serve the country and become instruments of social change.

             St. Xavier's College, Kolkata is affiliated to the Calcutta University. It runs five departments: Arts, Science, Commerce, Education and Business Administration.
The motto of the school as well as the college "NIHIL ULTRA" (literally meaning, "NOTHING BEYOND") means that our aim is set on the highest ideals.

               St. Xavier's College with its pioneering legacy, was the first educational Institute of the city to think in terms of introducing Computer Studies. Instead of introducing Computer Science only in the undergraduate level, it was thought wiser to initially offer various courses on Computer Studies under the aegis of what we call today St. Xavier's Computer Centre.

                Since its inception in 1985, it has grown from strength to strength and at present it is a big tree providing Computer Education to people from all walks of life. St. Xavier's Computer Centre is accredited to the Dept. of Electronics under the DOEACC (www.doeacc.org.in) scheme to offer "A" level, "O" level and "CCC" courses.
