St. Joseph’s Convent School is a Christian minority school under the Management of the CMC Sisters, a religious order founded in Kerala in 1866, established to impart education, especially to women and children. Ever since its origin, the Sisters have been active in the field of education. The lives of many young girls and boys, belonging to different classes and religious communities and linguistic groups, are being shaped and moulded in these institutions.
Opened in 1958, St. Joseph’s Convent School is affiliated to the Council for the Indian Certificate School Examination which has statutory recognition by the Government of India as one of the main All India School Examining bodies. The school receives no government or private aid, fee being its only income. Hence, fees have to be adjusted from time to time to keep up with the rising costs and salaries. The right to run the day to day activities of the school is vested in the Principal.
