The Christ School ICSE stands as a landmark in the abode of learning. It imparts quality education and enriches the learning environment in order to optimize each child’s overall development and help to realize its full potential. The focus is on bringing up caring, confident youngsters who will uphold moral and spiritual values and eventually take their place as productive, responsible members of society.
Christ School is primarily meant to provide catholic children with sound education based on religious and moral values, but is open to all, irrespective of religion, caste or community, paying respect to their religious feelings and freedom of conscience. The school aims at not merely preparing its pupils to qualify for the board examinations but also at achieving excellence in every aspect of educational activity - spiritual, academic, cultural, social and physical - by - developing their character and personality through graded responsibility, personal guidance and social awareness, thus forming them into leaders in the intellectual and civic life of the country.
Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the founder of Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI), an indigenous religious congregation, is our source of inspiration as the influence of his vision and dreams permeates through our activities today. Blessed Chavara, a great educationalist and social reformer of the 19 century foresaw the changes that would take place and wanted to build a society based on Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of humanity.
“Our educational endeavors 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.”
