The JMJ Junior College for Girls is located on the NH 214, Gudivada Road; Hanuman Junction, West Godavari District, Andhra Pradesh. Many villages are surrounded Hanuman Junction and it is economically and socially backward area. Most of the young girls could not pursue their higher education due to lack of colleges with residential facilities. Seeing their sad plight, the compassionate late bishop Rt. Rev. Joseph Thumma requested J.M.J sisters to start a college for girls and generously offered 5 acres of land. Thus, Jyothi High School was upgraded into J.M.J Junior College for Girls in 1994 with an initial strength of 84 students. The college strength grew gradually to 540, the current year. The rich and intelligent students go to the corporate residential colleges where the poor and below average students get the opportunity to study in our J.M.J. Junior College.
In 1997, a building was constructed for both college and hostel with all facilities, till then the Junior college was in the Jyothi High School primes. During admission priority is given to the students who are economically, educationally and socially underprivileged. Most of our students belong to the backward classes in the society who depend on Government scholarship for education as well as boarding and lodging.
The Management and the Staff strive to obtain good result and success in all-round development of the students. We are trying to accomplish the vision of late bishop Rt. Rev.Thumma Joseph to educate the poor girls of these rural areas. We affirm that along with our dedicated staff will offer quality education to the young girls.
