St. Paul’s Educational Institutions is one of the oldest institutions in the cotton textile hub of Davangere. It was started in the year 1946 by the Carmelite Sisters of St. Teresa (CSST) under the aegis of Teresian Carmel Education Society (TCES), with its head quarters at Mysore. The Nursery School was opened in the year 1946 October 10th with six students on the roll and by the end of march, number of students increased to sixty. In June 1947 Kannada Medium primary section was opened with due sanction from the Educational department of Davangere. St. Paul’s Educational Institutions have educated thousands of students of all categories, and have contributed to nation building. It has produced with its existence of 75 years prominent and well known academicians like administrators, politicians, legal and medical professionals, engineers, doctors and outstanding sports persons. A tiny seed has germinated and grown into a huge tree sheltering 3,000 students at present. St. Paul’s Convent Educational Institutions have parallel sections, both Kannada and English Medium both Aided and Unaided, C.B.S.E. and P.U. The management gives free education as well concessions to deserving students from disadvantaged sections of the society. As mentioned above tiny inconspicuous seed germinated; gradually grown into a mighty tree and have taken giant strides and what it started with 6 students, has grown today into a sprawling educational complex with the might of thousands of people worked behind the scene.
