If work is worship then St. Gonsalo Garcia College has been my place of worship for the past 24 years. It is indeed a great honor to lead this prestigious college. The foundation of this great institution was laid down by our founder Prin. Rev. Fr. John Rumao way back in 1984. The college was blessed by then pope John Paul - II on 9th Feb 1986. The college has a reputable history of legendary principals since its beginning. Fr. John Rumao was succeeded by historians Fr. Joseph Wellingkar and Dr. Regin D’Silva. Then Rev. Fr. Dr. Solomon Rodrigues in his long tenure tried to develop the extra-curricular and co-curricular abilities of our institution. He was succeeded by an academician Dr. Dominic Lopes followed by a well-known poet Dr. Cecilia Carvalho.
The historic place ‘Vasai’ (Bassein) has been an important landmark from times in the distant past. Surrounded by the Sahyadri Mountains to the east, enriched by the alluvial soil of the Vaitarna this beautiful green belt is bordered by the boisterous Arabian Sea to the West. This area speaks volumes about human endeavour, toiling to reap the benefits from the green agricultural expanse – the hilly dense forests coupled with the wealth from the seas. Our college is ensconsed in this secure rustic world which is fast changing into a modern industrial environment and life style.
During the 1980’s the Catholic community in and around Vasai felt the need of opening an institution of higher learning.
To provide the rural youth higher education aimed at academic excellence coupled with over all character formation through moral ethical and spiritual values inculcating the spirit of research and discovery, to orient in skills, to ensure employment and self-sufficiency through various courses to enhance essential human resource development for the overall improvement of life which lead to nation building.
St. Gonsalo Garcia College is committed to the integrated development of youth for individual and social transformation.
