The American College established in 1881, has steadfastly embraced a decentralized leadership model since its inception. Registered under the Societies Registration Act of 1860, the Governing Council is anchored in the principle of decentralization. The Council’s structure designates the Bishop of the Diocese of Madurai – Ramnad (DM&R) as the chairman, with members including the Principal (also the secretary), Vice Principal, Bursar, two elected faculty members, and other nominated representatives.

Decentralization of academic and administrative responsibilities is a cornerstone of the institution. The Principal & Secretary’s authority is distributed through statutory committees and bodies, fortifying the overall administrative framework. This approach extends to the formation of non-statutory committees and bodies outlined in the organizational structure, ensuring effective leadership and decentralized power across the institution.

Co-curricular activities, including the National Service Scheme, National Cadet Corps, Service Learning Programs, Green Club, and Blood Donation Camps and the Women’s Forum operate under a dedicated center. Experienced Directors/Coordinators/Nodal officers manage these centers, serving as Public Relation Officers and actively involving students in administration. This well-established system encourages student engagement and participation in various aspects of college life.

The hostel operates efficiently with a structured system in place, ensuring the well-being of residents. Strategic initiatives include fostering a sense of community through organized events, promoting cultural exchange, and facilitating academic support within the hostel premises. The current system involves dedicated Hostel Wardens, Student representatives and support staff overseeing day-to-day operations, effective functioning of the mess, addressing concerns promptly, and maintaining a robust communication channel with residents.
