The school is open to all students irrespective of caste and creed. As this is a Catholic institution, we give special stress on imparting Christian faith to Christian students.Students are given an opportunity to get acquainted with the person of Christ and his eternal teachings. However each child is helped to grow in his own cultural, social and religious traditions.In keeping with our Motto 'Seek and Find', each student is encouraged to seek wisdom and knowledge in keeping with the Nation's aspirations. The main objective of the curriculum is to develop the individual potentialities of the student fully rather than confining books."We aim to provide quality education in a safe environment that promotes academic excellence and empower the students to be independent thinkers, morally upright and responsible citizens"
