St. Thomas' College firmly believes that institutes of higher education, through their curriculum, are expected to provide knowledge, know-how, wisdom, and character to the students. "Knowledge" enables them to understand what they learn in relation to what they already know, and creates an ability to generalize from their experiences. "Know-how" takes them beyond mere understanding and enables them to put their knowledge to work. "Wisdom" makes them capable of deciding their priorities. Character development is the combined effect of knowledge, know-how, and wisdom, coupled with motivation. Character development is recognized by certain traits, viz., honesty, integrity, initiative, curiosity, truthfulness, cooperativeness, self-esteem, and ability to work alone and in a group.
