Our mission is to be in a prominent position in educating the students in their formative period. We strive to mold the students to face the challenges of the modern world, safe guarding their characters and Indian ethos. Academic achievements should always be in the forefront of all activities of the students. The young minds should understand that God has a mission for everyone in this world. This is achieved through continued improvements of designing, developing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating curriculum, co-curriculum and extra-curriculum along with faculty development programmes. As a catholic college, we educate in true Christian faith, firm values and high ideals to the student community, respecting their religious sentiments and freedom of conscience. There is no substitute for hard work and we want to make our students successful through their hard work.
