Prospectus Rules

  • St. Joseph's Indian High School, opened in 1904 is conducted by the Fathers of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits), a religious order of Catholic Church. This order was founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola in 1540. The Jesuits are active in the field of education throughout the world. In India they have established many schools and colleges. These institutions are part of Catholic Church's effort to share in the country's educational undertakings.

  • Jesuit education is inspired by the life and teachings of Jesus Christ whom our countrymen have always revered and admired. It is also based on the sound principles of character formation laid down by St. Ignatius of Loyola.

Prospectus Rules Committee.....
  • OBJECTIVES: Jesuit education helps the student to affirm the goodness in the world. It fosters in him a sense of wonder and mystery about the whole of creation. Jesuit schools also aim at helping the students to get in touch with the world around him. This implies the creation of an atmosphere in the school where in the student can easily acquire the effective communication skills that can put him in touch with the world.

  • A personal approach to the formation of each student is another aim of Jesuit education. Only such an approach will facilitate the student's growth in openness to life's experiences. Such a process of growth will finally lead to the student's becoming a well-integrated person. To achieve that goal, discipline is necessary to cultivate proper values in the student and to ensure his rigorous application to study and his participation in the various activities of the school.

  • Jesuit education aims at excellence which means the fullest possible development of each person and his gifts or talents with a view to make him one who is available to others in loving service. It thus aims at helping the students imbibe a growing awareness of the needs of the less privileged or the poor of the world in which he lives.

  • In the light of all this, the significance of the school motto - FAITH AND TOIL - is clearly seen. With faith in God and a spirit of hard work, a student is gradually lead to be a man of character who will always uphold truth, accept the hierarchy of values, be clear on principles, courageous in action and willing to build a more just social order.
