The Arcot Mission High School as the amalgamated school was called, was raised to the status of an intermediate college and was affiliated to the University of Madras in 1898. In 1902 Mr. & Mrs. Ralph Voorhees of the Reformed Church in America made a generous gift of $25,000 to the college; a further contribution ;of $10,000 was made in 1911. New buildings at the present location were built with these funds and the college was named after the benefactors as Voorhees College.
