The Sacred Heart of Jesus, the patron of the Arch eparchy of Kottayam, the college is named after Prof. Joseph Kandoth, a great visionary and social reformer who initiated the exodus of a part of the Knanaya Community from Central Travancore to the green pastures of north Malabar. This temple of teacher education is the realization of the cherished dream of a great teacher, our patron Mar. Kuriakose Kunnacherry, the Arch Bishop of Kottayam. It was because of the untiring efforts of Rev. Fr. Stephen Jayaraj OFM (Cap.), the then Vicar General of Malabar and the timely help by Sri. K.M. Mani, the Revenue Ministers and Sri. Ommen Chandi, the then Finance Minister and the present Chief Minister of Kerala that this college, a beacon of hope for the less privileged became a reality in the gentle undulations of a rustic Village called Madampam.
The college was inaugurated on 17th June, 1995 by the patron Mar. Kuriakose Kunnacherry in an old building of Maryland High school. In 1996 it was shifted to the edifice on a hilltop sprawling in 10 acres of land, conspicuously unique for its semi-circular form, in tune with the undulating hills.
On 31st March 1997 this self-financing college was converted into an aided college, provisional affiliation was changed to permanent affiliation from 18th Oct. 2004 onwards. The U.G.C. recognized the 2(f) and 12(B) status on 31st March 2005
Fr, Stephen Jayaraj OFM (Cap) the vicar General of Malabar was the founder manager and he was followed by Rev. Dr. Msgr. Jacob Kollamparambil, vicar General of the Eparchy of Kottayam in 1997. The present manager is Mar. Mathew Moolakkat, the co - adjutor Bishop of Kottayam and pro-manager is Very Rev. Fr. Alex Akkapparambil.
Prof. Philip Kanduthodiyil assumed charge as the first principal in June 1995. In 1997 Prof. C.N. Balakrishnan Nambiar was appointed as principal. It was on 1st Feb the present principal Fr. P.J. George assumed the office. Mrs. Maya J. Pillai (1996 – 97) and Dr. Anil R. (2001 – 2003) served the institution as Lecturers – in – charge of Principal.The founder fathers of this institution had a very noble and revolutionary vision to establish it in a hilly, rural and backward area contiguous to the Karnataka borders in Kannur District. Their prime aim was to impart education and training to the less privileged and marginalized section of the society to pioneer a vibrant social nobility in the agrarian community. In the history of Catholic Church of Kerala to name an educational institution after a layman is indeed, an innovative and revolutionary step. Crowning a rustic hillock in a majestic splendour and set against the lush green sylvan ambiance the college has indelibly imprinted a noble legacy of a decade in the educational scenario of Northern Malabar. Initially the college offered the B.Ed. course with six options – English, Malayalam, Mathematics, Physical Science, Natural Science and Social Science. The past decade has already set the path for the realization of the noble vision and caring mission cherished by the institution. In the curricular realm the students of P.K.M stood head and shoulders above securing top most ranks in the university. They were always peerlessly ahead in sports and games.
In fine arts their performance was always superb. In social awareness and commitment to profession the past thousand students are behind none. With hope and confidence we progressively march on to encompass the kind of transformative education envisaged by the management. Therefore apart from the academics and artistry the institution strives for complete personality development based on sound human values.
