Founded as a School in 1837 in the black town of Madras, the Madras Christian College was built and its character shaped by a host of Scottish missionaries such as Anderson and Miller, Hogg and Boyd. It is a matter of pride that the institution is ranked among the Top Ten Liberal Arts and Science Colleges in India and also received the Rating of A+ (equivalent to 90-95%) by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC).
