In 1989 Loyola Primary and Higher Primary school were established. In 1992 another institution that was added was Loyola Industrial Training Institute, where poor students are given training in fitter trade, motor mechanic, driving, electrical maintenance, carpentry etc.Hundreds of students have been given training to make a living through these trades and have excelled in society. In 2008 Loyola High School was upgraded to Loyola Composite Pre-University College. Today the Pre-University College has a strength of 600 students with Science, Commerce and Arts streams.
