C S I College For Advanced Studies, Punnakkad

A long cherished dream to establish a higher education institution in Punnakkad, Pathanamthitta district came true when the C.S.I. Madhya Kerala Diocese established C.S.I. College for Advanced Studies in the year 2022. It was the need of the hour that a remote village like Punnakkad is to be educated and reconstructed through higher education as Gandhiji, 'Father of our Nation' believed that "The soul India lives in its villages".

Our main objective is to attain Quality Education- Sustainable Development, ensuring inclusive and quality education to promote lifelong learning opportunities for all. Our college also emphasizes on value education alternatively known as moral education which focuses on the topic of citizenship education, personality development, spiritual development, character development and basic human duties that ultimately shapes the students' future and teaches them to live with integrity.

We adopted the outcome-based education, expecting all learners to successfully achieve a particular level of knowledge and abilities when the teacher is only a facilitator and guide. We equip each student to face the challenges of life helping them to be better individuals which make a better world.

Vision The college is committed to sustainable development, pursuit of excellence and holistic growth of the learner.

Mission Achieve excellence in teaching, learning and evaluation through innovative and robust methods.
