Mercy College, Palakkad, a women’s college, affiliated to the University of Calicut, was established in the year 1964. It was “a dream come true”- the dream of the St. Chavara Elias and the Carmelite Missionary Fr. Leopold Beccardo who bequeathed to us the noble mission of dedicating ourselves for the upliftment and Christian formation of our fellowmen, especially of women and children.

This Institution is administered by the Jai Christo CMC. Educational Agency. The College has completed 50 years of imparting quality, value-based education to young women in the area, empowering and training them for the service of God and humanity. Today, the Institution has soared to enviable heights of eminence and has been reaccredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council at ‘A’ grade.
