Rajagiri Public School was started in 1994 by the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) of the Sacred Heart Province, Rajagiri, Kalamassery.
The CMI Order was started in 1831 by a group of priests of the Syro-Malabar Church, led by Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara(1805-1871). This first indigenous religious congregation in India did pioneering work in the field of education, without distinction of caste or creed.
Beginning with the first Catholic Sanskrit School in Kerala in 1846 and the first primary school eighteen years later, the congregation has built up a vast network of schools and colleges all over India. A distinguishing feature of these educational institutions is that they draw inspiration from the life of Jesus Christ as also from the sages and prophets of our land and are deeply rooted in its culture.
The CMI Vision of Education consists in ‘the formation of the human person for the fulfillment of his/her individual and social responsibilities’. It aims at forming leaders ‘who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth’. Education for complete living has been the watchword of all its educational projects and programmes.
The Rajagiri Public School stands as yet another land mark in the ‘abode of learning’ that is the Rajagiri campus. It imparts quality education and enriches the learning environment in order to optimise each child’s overall development and help realise 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.
Rajagiri Vidyakshetram, the campus of Rajagiri Educational Institutions, is a temple of learning, dedicated to the crystallization of this CMI vision.
