Alpha Academy, the professional Entrance coaching centre under aegis of the Diocese of Cochin, has become functional since September 2008. Long-term tuition oriented engineering/medical entrance coaching classes are being conducted at the Catholic centre, Thoppumpady during weekends and public holidays.
The motive behind the project is the social situation where entrance coaching has become highly expensive, affordable only to students hailing from good financial situation. The students from poor families and backward situation are unable to undergo the required training for the entrance examinations and consequently they are pulled out from the scene.
