Shirakole Mahavidyalaya was founded on the 9th of June, 2007 at Shirakole with the purpose of imparting higher education to the aspiring students of the locality, especially girls, who had to face serious problems regarding admission to different colleges in Kolkata. The bulk of the population of Shirakole comprises of backward minority class who have access to primary and secondary education but are debarred from the opportunity of higher education. The college is the only centre of higher education at Shirakole. Like all budding organisation this college also had a very humble beginning at the school building of Yudhistir Nanilal High School.

In 2012 the college shifted to its own building. At present the college offers honours course in Education, History, and Bengali. The college also offers general courses in Education, History, Political Science, Bengali, English, Philosophy, Geography, and B.Com. In future, the Governing Body of the college plans to introduce Post-Graduate courses in distance mode. The college aims at preparing young minds to brave the challenges of the ever changing modern world.
