C.M.I. Education Policy Statement

We, the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate, after the example of our founder Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara, consider education as the integral formation of the human person for the fulfilment of his/her individual and social responsibilities.

Our educational endeavours 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 justices, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth.

The secret of the success of our educational institutions is a community of teachers who are committed to their vocation, professionally competent, morally upright, just and humane in dealings and who grow in the true vision of education.

We aspire towards creating a just hamane society where dignity of the human person is respected, where unjust social structures are challenged, where our cultural heritage of Ahimsa, Religious Harmony and national unity are upheld, and where the poor and the marginalised are specially taken care of.

We have to reach out to the families, primarily of the students, to assist them in their needs, to share in their joys and sorrow and to help them experience.

Love and freedom so that the students realise that our educational institutions are an extension of their homes.

Our institutions are open to all students irrespective of caste and creed; they are accepted and cherished as they are and are helped to grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions. As they are privileged to be in our institutions, they will also have the right to get acquainted with the person of Jesus Christ and his Gospel. Being institutions established and administered by and for a minority community based on religion, they will give preference to Christians in admissions and appointments and have a special concern for the faith formation of the Christian youth.

Our institutions are also open to society at large by making their resources available for the ongoing education and growth. For the realization of this C.M.I goal of education we expect students, parents and teachers to share this vision and cooperate with us whole-heartedly.
