Deva Matha College, Kuravilangad, was founded on 3rd April 1964 under the inspiration of the Catholic Diocese of Palai by Major Archiepiscopal Marth Mariam Archdecon Pilgrim Church, Kuravilangad. The parish, Major Archiepiscopal Marth Mariam Archdecon Pilgrim Church, Kuravilangad, has etched her name in the academia of Kerala by establishing two High Schools and two L. P. Schools in the latter half of the 18th century and a Higher Secondary School in 1998. The former President of India, Dr. K.R. Narayanan and Chevalier Dr. P. J. Thomas, a renowned Economist in India did their schooling in these institutions. Deva Matha College, Kuravilangad is affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam.

Paul Alappattu, the then Vicar of St. Mary’s Forane Church, Kuravilangad, who spearheaded the founding of the college, had in their minds the glorious task of dispelling darkness and spreading the light of true wisdom all round, irrespective of caste, creed, language or religion through the dissemination of knowledge and other skills that would mould the young generation into exemplary citizens well equipped to face the challenges of the times. True to its vision and mission, the college today has emerged as a knowledge hub and a leading centre of academic excellence, educating and transforming thousands of students who hail from a purely Agrarian, Rural background.
