ST. XAVIER'S PROVINCE

Education Ministry


We are convinced that the aim of all education is the formation of the human person for the fulfillment of his individual and social responsibilities. Christian education further aims at his growth into manhood according to the mature measure of Christ. Conscious of these aims of human and Christian education we try to give an excellent and all-round formation to the students in our educational institutions. We concentrate more on quality than on quantity and foster good inter-personal relations. In this process, we are conscious that our exemplary life always remains the most important factor in our educational apostolate.

Considering the fact that in education we share the responsibility of the nation, we make special efforts to co-ordinate our educational activities with the aims and goals of the nation so that our students may grow up as responsible citizens fully involved in the task on nation-building. It is with these twin aims that we have entered the field of education.

Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara, founder of our community, was a trend-setter in the universalization of education and making it available to all sections of the society. He also took initiative in imparting quality education with formation in values so that not only the individuals grow holistically but also they become instruments in social mobility and social transformation. Carrying on this legacy, we also try to be trend-setters in education; for this, we have an educational policy in agreement with the national policy of the Church and in the spirit of our own CMI legacy, and implement it in all our educational institutions.
