St. Claret College (SCC) was established in 2005 by the international Missionary Congregation of Claretians who manage two universities and over 150 educational institutions in 66 countries around the world. The Bengaluru campus is managed by Claretian Society for Integral Human Development established with the aim of providing holistic and quality education to the people in and around Bangalore. Apart from St. Claret College, the campus shelters three other educational institutions: St. Claret School, Anthony Claret (AC) School and St. Claret Pre-University College.
