The town is known for having very good colleges and schools. S.P. College leads the pack and offers graduation in social science, pure science, economics, mathematics and other subjects. Dumka also has a polytechnic and an ITI but unfortunately no engineering, medical or dental college, so those who wish to pursue a career in these subjects have to move out of the city. It has another very good school, St Joseph's High School, situated at Guhiajori, 10km from main city. This school has excellent academic facilities and a good infrastructure for sports. This school is considered as one of the best school in Jharkhand (erstwhile South Bihar). Many field hockey and football players emerged from here.
