Twenty-five years ago the mind of a visionary foresaw the great oak within the tiny acorn which he planted and nurtured with care and dedication. H.G Dr. Stephanose Mar Theodosius, Founder-Manager of St. Thomas College, Bhilai (affiliated to Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur) is no more but the lives on through the institution which has progressed by leaps and bounds and has carved for itself a niche in the education map of India.
The vision and mission of his grace remains the guiding star of the college of this day. The endeavour is to provide quality education on a foundation of values and virtues, with emphasis on academics as well as postgraduates courses which are in high demand and attract a great number of students.

Kuriakose, who have passed the reins into the able hands of the present Principal Dr. Reny George. Indian Achievers’ forum, New Delhi conferred upon Dr. Reny George the Shiksha Bharti Award for innovative Educational Programmes for year 2007-08.
