The college is named after the venerable Mar Thomas Kurialacherry, the first native bishop of Changanacherry and the founder of the Congregation of the Sisters of the Adoration of the Blessed Sacrament. The founding of Bishop Kurialacherry College in 1965 by the S.A.B.S. congregation was inspired by the vision of our heavenly patron, venerable Mar Thomas Kurialacherry who had foreseen the importance of the upliftment, enlightenment, and empowerment of women.  It was his vision that by educating women we can create a better home, society and nation.  “When we educate a woman we are educating a generation” he used to say.                                
Our College is situated in Amalagiri which is 10 kms away from Kottayam, about half a kilometer north of Caritas – Medical College Road, on the Medical College – Mahatma Gandhi University road and about 1 km west of M.C. Road.  The foundation stone of the college was laid down by His Grace Most Rev. Dr. Mathew Kavukatt on 14th January 1965 on the 92nd birth anniversary of Bishop Kurialacherry.
The college started functioning on 5th July 1965 under the able guidance of Sr. Mary Xavier as the first principal.  The management is actively involved in planning and implementing innovative programmes for the development of the students and the society.  It has always held the lamp of learning high with its motto “Accendere Lumen-to kindle the light” and has removed the darkness of ignorance from the minds of those who enter the portals of our institution.
The college is affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi university and was upgraded in 1980. The college was accredited by N.A.A.C. in 1999-2000 at the three star level. In 2007 the college successfully underwent the process of re- accreditation and was awarded the B++ grade and in 2012 the college was accredited at the A grade level. Currently, the college stands accredited at A+ grade and has attained 80 th rank in the 2020 NIRF ranking. The N.A.A.C. report has specially complimented the college for its commendable efforts in the field of women’s education. We welcome students belonging to all walks of life, irrespective of class, caste and creed.
