CMI Education Policy Statement
We, the Carmelites of Mary Immacultate, after the example of our founder, Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara, consider education as an integral formation of the human person for the fulfillment 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 justice, love, truth, brotherhood and peace and open to further growth and change.
The secret of the success of our educational institution is a community of committed teachers, who are professionally competent, morally sound, right, just and human in their dealings.We aspire towards creating a just and human society where dignity of the human person is respected, where our cultural heritage of ahimsa, religious harmony and national integration are upheld and where the poor and the marginalized are specially taken care of.
Our institutions are open to all students irrespective of caste and creed. 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.
These institutions which are established by and for a minority community, will give preference to Christians in admission and appointments and have a special concern for the faith formation of the Christian youth.Our institutions are open to society at large by making their resources available for the ongoing education and non-formal teaching.
