At the insistent request of the Educational Department, a Junior College has been attached to the High School from June 1979.
We opened Science and Commerce classes of the Junior College in the academic year 1979 - 80 on the insistent request from the Department of Education, Thane. The Education department being fully aware of the congenial atmosphere prevailing in St. John Campus and the quality of instruction imparted here, had made this proposal to us.

As a matter of course, in the academic year 1980 - 81 S.Y.J.C. Science and Commerce classes were opened.
