Our Heritage

Our Founder is Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara (1805-1871), the founder of our Congregation, Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) and the first indigenous religious congregation in India. Instead of confining his piety to the cloister, this great visionary distinguished himself as a social reformer, prolific writer and an outstanding educationist. He heralded changes in the educational scenario of Kerala by starting, in 1864, the first Sanskrit school that was free and open to all, irrespective of caste or creed. He insisted on having at least one school attached to each church. As a result, the CMI congregation today has a large network of 550 educational institutions ranging from play schools to professional colleges and even a deemed university, in and outside India.

St. Francis Xavier (1506-1552) is the Patron of our school the greatest Roman Catholic Missionary of modern times who was instrumental in spreading the message of God in India.
