Christ, the teacher par excellence, is our Supreme Guru and Guiding Light. The school is dedicated to Him. St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the founder of carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) religious congregation is our prime source of inspiration. The seminal influence of his vision and dreams permeates our activities to this day.
Christ Nagar Central School started in 2005 at Kowdiar Campus got affiliated to the CBSE Board (1-8) in 2013-’14. As envisioned by Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the founder of the CMI Congregation CNS Caters to the aspirations of a fast changing society, for quality education. The school has creditable achievements in every field.
The perennial response to the age old aspiration of the Rishis of ArshaBharata expressed in the Upanishadic prayer, “to lead us from darkness to light, from falsehood to truth and from mortality to immortality” found in the words of Jesus Christ, “I am the Way, the Truth and the Life” is the motto of the school. The attainment of true knowledge makes one enlightened so that one can lead oneself and others in the path of truth to immortal life.
As a CMI educational institution, the school regards education as an integral phenomenon in the holistic formation of the human being for the fulfilment of his/her individual and social responsibilities. The school aims at moulding leaders, who are intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy and socially acceptable. They must be open to growth and must champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace.
The school also aims at creating a just and humane society where dignity of the human being is respected, where unjust social structures are challenged, where our cultural heritage of ahimsa, religious harmony and national integration are upheld, where the poor and the downtrodden are specially taken care of.
The school is open to all students irrespective of caste and creed; they are accepted and cherished as they are and are helped to grow within their cultural, social and religious tradition. However, being an institution established by, and for, a minority community based on religion, the school gives preference to Christians, both in admission and in appointment and has a concern for the faith – formation of the Christian youth. The school expects the students, the parents and the teachers to share the CMI vision of education and to co-operate with the school wholeheartedly.
