We also aim at creating a new generation of human society where dignity of the human person is upheld, where unjust social structures are challenged, where our cultural heritage of ahimsa, religious harmony and national integration are cherished, where the poor and the down trodden are specially taken care of.
Tolerance and respect for all religions besides one’s own is more urgent now than any time before. The communally charged 21st century has already given the world enough proof. Bearing this in mind we give great importance to the spiritual and moral formation of our children. A faith - culture is developed among them irrespective of religious differences. Apart from regular religious/moral instruction sessions, periodic programmes like Divine Liturgy, prayer gatherings, visits to the Blessed Sacrament, retreats, extension lectures by reputed spiritual and exemplary leaders etc are also conducted. Besides this general awareness, we also organize regular religious formation sessions for non-Christian students.
A century and quarter ago there lived an accomplished missionary cum visionary, Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara (1805-1871), in the outskirts of Kainakary near Alappuzha. His educational enthusiasm was conceived in altruism and dedicated to the noble end of holistic enlightenment to the entire humanity. He is the founder of the order of Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) by whom the ever refurbishing chain of a number prestigious academic institutions were set forth, which are at the zenith of their glory now. In the year 1994 a dream that the enlightened local people of Koothattukulam kept ever living in their hearts got converted to a livable reality by the concerted efforts of the CMI Fathers of Kottayam Province. Thus the coarse and barren zig-zags of a dry hill acquired a total face-lift. The visage of that hill is picturesque with an evergreen back-ground in an eco-friendly vicinity of serenity and tranquillity. The young, little and very little ones above the age of terrible two feel at home here to savour anything and everything that they see around so that they would find this world a lot more beautiful. They shrug off monotony and make life a blend of everything that pertains to their aspirations and while doing so they believe in themselves. Apart from cognitive development they build their self-confidence through a value-based philosophy to substantiate their personality. Their talents are accentuated and potentials manifested through umpteen openings.
