Our Inspirational Journey

In its infancy, JMJ College faced formidable challenges, yet with divine providence and the support of visionaries like Sri Alapati Venkataramaih, former Cabinet Minister for Local Administration, A.P., and Sri Kanneganti Reddamma, then President of the Central Bank of Co-operative Society, Tenali, paved the way forward.

The foundation stone for the college's first wing was laid in December 1963 by Mother Marie-de-Montfort, the Superior General of the Society, and Sri Alapati Venkataramaiah. By 1965, it launched B.Sc courses and relocated to a permanent site, gaining UGC recognition.

Under the visionary leadership of Rev. Sr. Anna Maria Gali, the first Principal, the college flourished, adding infrastructure and academic offerings. In 1969, Intermediate courses were introduced, further enhancing educational opportunities.

In 1976, the college was affiliated with Acharya Nagarjuna University, solidifying its academic standing. By 1982, the General Inspection Committee, led by Prof. D. Bhaskar Reddy, then Vice Chancellor of Acharya Nagarjuna University, recognized JMJ College as one of the best in the university.

Today, JMJ College epitomizes resilience and excellence, molding intellectually competent, morally upright, socially committed, and spiritually inspired women in the spirit of Christian humanism.
