MCC Community College, West Tambaram

About Us

The MCC Tambaram Community College was dedicated by the State Minister and officials of MCC association on 11th January 2013 as a milestone of the 175th-year celebration of MCC at Oxfam campus located in West Tambaram. It originally started as an extension of MCC in the form of a Maternity Service Centre, Nursery and Primary school.
