The C.J. Vision of Education
The Sisters of the Congregation of Jesus founded by Mary Ward in 1609, consider schools as powerful agent in forming fully alive human beings to bring about a just society.
Our School aims at creating individuals who are intellectually competent, morally sound, psychologically whole, imbued with the sense of the Divine, committed to the cause of Justice, Love and Peace, and ever open to further growth.
These schools aspire towards creating humane society, free from prejudices, superstition and discrimination based on sex, religion, caste and economic status and characterized by respect for the dignity of the human person, leading to concern for each other, especially the underprivileged.
For the attainment of this goal, the congregation expects the teachers to share this vision and to co-operate in making it a reality.
