The college is named in the loving memory of its Patron Pope, St. Pius X who made the Knanaya community as a separate Diocese of Kottayam in the year 1911. This college was a realization of a long cherished dream of great visionary, learned scholar, philosopher, teacher and orator, Rt. Rev. Dr. Mar Kuriakose Kunnassery, former ArchBishop of the Archdiocese of Kottayam. Acquisition of land for the college was over in the year 1980. St. Pius X College owns 25 acres of land which was bought by the generous contributions of the poor people of Rajapuram Colony, despite difficult times. A sincere priest with high leadership qualities and farsightedness, Rev. Fr. Dr. Stephen Jayaraj OFM (cap.), then vicar general of Malabar region channelized the required finance for the construction of the college. Once an abandoned and unknown backward area came to the limelight and became a nodal centre of growth with the establishment of this college. The foundation stone of the college building was laid on 14th January 1987 and blessed on 18th June 1990 by Rt. Rev Dr. Mar Kuriakose Kunnassery.
For four years, from 1990 to 1994 the college functioned as an unaided college under the principalship of Rev. Fr. Jacob Kuruppinakath, who was succeeded by Rev. Sr. Savio. It was because of the untiring efforts of Rev. Fr. Dr. Stephen Jayaraj, the college got the status of Govt. aided college in 1995. The college was inaugurated on 14th August 1995 by Sri. K.M Mani.
Under the loving patronage of his grace Mar. Mathew Moolakkattu, Archbishop of the archdiocese of Kottayam Eparchy and with the parental care and able guidance of the present manager, Rt. Rev. Mar Joseph Pandarasseril, Auxiliary bishop of kottayam, the college is making rapid progress in the field of higher education. Every year several students topped the university rank list. The kind of education envisaged by the management is all encompassing. Apart from academics and Co-curricular activities it would evolve the complete personality development based on sound values.
