A Brief History
Very Rev. Fr. Joseph Carreno SDB, a far-sighted missionary from Spain founded Sacred Heart College in the year 1951. It started functioning with 10 teachers and 81 students and in a short period of six decades, it has grown into a postgraduate and research institution. With the view to cater to the needs of the deserving local students, the college also offers undergraduate courses and postgraduate courses in the Evening College on self-financing basis.
Recognizing its academic contributions, the University of Madras conferred the autonomous status on the postgraduate courses of M.A. (Social Work) and M.Sc. (Mathematics) from the academic year 1987-88. Subsequently, in the year 1988-89, autonomous status was conferred on the postgraduate course of M.A. (Economics) and on all the undergraduate courses. The Evening College affiliated to Thiruvalluvar University, Vellore, is functioning in the non-autonomous mode. The College received the approval from AICTE(All India Council for Technical Education) to commence MCA programme on self-financing basis from the academic year 1998-99.
The System of Education
Don Bosco's system of education, popularly known as 'Preventive System', is the method of education at Sacred Heart College. Joseph Zoopi, the Swiss poet said: 'If there ever existed a system of education adapted to inspire confidence and love in the young, it is the system of Don Bosco.' Founded on the rich Salesian educative pedagogy of Reason, Religion and Kindness, it aspires to create a generation of young men and women steeped not only in a sound knowledge-based education but in a strong value-based education for life. Salesian Educative Pastoral Plan (SEPP) spells out the details of our educational endeavour.
The College Coat of Arms
The Coat of arms itself is clear in its significance. The lotus stands for purity and integrity. It is resting on a sea of blue, a colour denoting the Blessed Virgin Mary, the chosen Mother of Jesus Christ. The heart inside a cross is the Heart of Jesus who was crucified to redeem the humankind. The ring of thorns around the Heart tells us that the Heart of Jesus loves us even to the point of suffering. The open book is the symbol of knowledge that the college imparts. Sacred Heart College is named after the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ Himself.
The College Motto and its Objectives
AD OMNE OPUS BONUM INSTRUCTI is the motto of our college. Various translations, are possible. 'Ready for every Good Work' is one. Another highly significant translation is that given by Rev. Ronald Knox.. "Every noble task will find him ready for it".
The general end of education at Sacred Heart College is the total development and the integral growth of the human person. To help the young people entrusted to our care to attain their personal growth we strive at:
1. Developing the intellectual capacity of the students to search for truth and knowledge.
2. Offering possibilities by which the students discern their calling in life.
3. Forming a social consciousness that will make them
  Capable of fostering good relationships with others
  Open to other cultures and religions
  Posses an attitude of solidarity and dialogue, a sense of participation and co-responsibility
  Become agents of social change with a preferential option for the poor and the downtrodden.
