Southfield College was founded as Loreto College, in Darjeeling in August, 1961 as a women's college. At the request of the Government of West Bengal, the Irish Branch of the Institute of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Darjeeling Loreto Educational Society agreed to take care of its management. However, due to the lack of personnel the Loreto nuns were compelled to hand over the college to the Government of West Bengal, hence to be run as Southfield College.


Southfield College aims at imparting value based education to women in order to open up their minds to create space for their holistic development and to contribute to the society and country as a whole.


In the light of the vision statement we endeavour to lead our students to -
::  Relentlessly search for academic excellence.
::  Enlighten to cherish the ideals of love, sincerity and service.
::  Empower them to face challenges as dignified, responsible and dutiful citizens.
::  Respect the rights of all individuals through social justice.

All students once admitted are expected to conform to the regulations of the College and thus help to establish the high standards of behaviour and academic excellence.
