Our Education Policy

We, the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate CMI), after the example of our founder Blessed St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, consider education the integral formation of human person for the fulfillment of his/her individual and social responsibilities.

We aspire towards creating a just and human society where dignity of the human person is respected, where unjust social structures are challenged, where our cultural heritage, religious harmony and national integration is upheld and where the poor and the marginalized are specially taken care of.

Our educational endeavours aim at forming leaders who are intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy and socially acceptable; who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth.

The secret of the success of our educational institutions is a community of teachers who are committed to their vocation, professionally competent, morally upright, just and humane in dealings, and who grow in the true vision of education.

We have to reach out to the families, primarily of our students, to assist them in their needs, to share in their joys and sorrows, and to help them experience love and freedom to realize that our educational institutions are an extension of their homes.

Our institutions are open to all students irrespective of caste and creed; they are accepted and cherished as they are and are helped to grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions. As they are privileged to be in our institutions, they will also have the right to get acquainted with the person of Jesus Christ and His Gospel. Being institutions established by and for a minority community, they will give preference to Christians in admissions and appointments and have a special concern for the faith formation of the Christian youth.

Our institutions have to be open to society at large by making their resources available for the ongoing education and non-formal teaching.

For the realization of this CMI goal of education, we expect students, parents and teachers to share this vision and co-operate with us whole-heartedly.
