St. Joseph's TTI Mananthavady, established in 1963 under the Diocese of Thalassery, is an important milestone in the educational history of Malabar. Being the first teacher training center in Diocese, this institution has always contributed to the overall development of Malabar. Considering the educational backwardness of Mananthavady, Rev. Fr.

Initially there were 1st and2nd standard classes. Later, classes 3, 4 and 5 were added in the consecutive years. With the approval of the Madras Government, LP was raised as UP school, and in 1963, the Teacher Training center was started. The name then was St. Joseph's Basic Training School.
