The college was shifted to its present location during the period of W.M. Zumbro, its second Principal, who had his formal education at University of Michigan, Columbia, and Yale. He made a proposal in the year 1903 to the Missionary Fund in the United States to shift the College to Madurai. Verdant locale and imposing structures of heritage value are hallmarks of the present campus of The American College. Amidst the din and bustle of the city, the college stands like an oasis. The idea behind this shifting was to give a new vision to Christian higher education. By this, Rev. Zumbro meant that education should be made available to the common man despite divisions based on caste, creed, and religion. Rev. Zumbro envisaged that once Christian education goes public, people of Madurai would acquire a character, which would be beneficial for the city in the long term. In his words, Madurai should grow with American College and American College should grow with Madurai.
