THE JESUIT VISION OF EDUCATION:

        Jesuit Education is inspired by the vision received from the life and teaching of Jesus Christ who has always been respected and admired by the people of India. It is also based on the principles and character formation elaborated by Ignatius of Loyola. This vision and these principles give the Jesuit education a specific character and set before their staff and students high ideals of humanism and service towards which they are invited continually to strive.

Hence, Jesuit Vision of Education goes far beyond the achievement of academic excellence. It includes radical change of heart in the person of the educated and the educator him/herself turning them from selfish concerns to unreserved generosity to God and their fellow human beings. For a Christian, this would imply a personal commitment to Jesus Christ in whom he/she will find the source and inspiration of this generosity. Our education is therefore, aimed at this inner liberation of spirit, which prepared a person for even greater service, makes him/her truly free, mature and capable of assuming whatever responsibility each one is called to.  Only such an education can create fully committed men and woman who can face the challenges of our times.

The ideal which is set before every pupil is that of the perfect person, full of human qualities. The students are inspired to devote their whole life to humanity in solidarity with the underprivileged. Towards this end great care is taken to impart a sound moral training to the pupils to improve their ethical values and help them grow in holiness of life. In short, the education impart to them is intended to prepare them for the duties of life as responsible citizen of India.

In order to realize this vision the school provides education that caters to the all round personality of the students. While a vast play ground equipped with various sport and games facilities cater to the physical development and mental fitness of the students, various clubs and associations provide ample opportunities to widen the mental horizons of the learners. A well stocked library offers books, magazines and periodicals on different subjects. Regular co-curricular and extra-curricular activities provide the students ambience to develop their talents and ensure emotional growth.

The well qualified and experienced faculty members accompany the students in their pursuit of excellence and an integrated personality.
