Educational Vision of Carmelites of Mary
We, the Carmelites of Mary
Immaculate, after the example of our founder St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, consider education as integral
formation of the human person for the fulfillment of his/her individual and
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 and peace and who are ever open to further growth.
The secret of the success of our educational institution
is a community of teachers who are committed to their vocation, professionally
competent, morally upright, just and humane in dealings, and who grow in the
true vision of education.
band of dedicated teachers can contribute to the making of such young men and
women. The teacher should be an agent of
change, an individual of true values imbued with a real love for the discipline
he/ she handles and the profession he/ she has chosen. They should have moral integrity and a true
loving concern for the wards entrusted to their care.
We aspire towards creating a just human society where
dignity of the human person is respected, where unjust structures are
challenged, where our cultural heritage of ahimsa, religious harmony and
national integration is 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; they are accepted and cherished as they are and are helped to
grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions. 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. Being institutions established by
and for a majority community based on religion, they will give preference to
Christians in admissions and appointments and have a special concern for the
faith formation of the Christian youth.
the realization of this CMI goal of education, we expect students, parents and
teachers to share this vision and to cooperate with us whole-heartedly.
Coat of Arms
The college Coat of Arms is in the form of a
shield divided into four parts by a Cross, with a Crown and Lily at the top and
a motto in a Scroll at the bottom.
The Flaming Heart signifies a burning desire for
true wisdom and a consuming love for fellow beings. The Sacred Heart of Jesus,
the hallowed insignia of the college, symbolizes the passionate love and the
unending compassion for humanity.
The Open Book indicates the pursuit of knowledge
and intellectual formation - every individual's aspiration. The ship in the
Ocean with violent waves dashing against the rocks symbolizes the individual in
this world. With proper nurture of the heart and the head, the student should
be able to sail safely along the troubled waters of the ocean of life (samsara
sagaram) with courage and confidence.
The natural scenery with the Western Oak Tree
and the Eastern Palm and a stream flowing in between, suggests the harmonious
blending of the ethos of the east and the west, the local with the global. The
pre-eminence of the Indian culture is hinted by the Indian palm towering above
the western oak.
The white Silver Cross that divides the shield
into four parts symbolizes innocence, sanctity, discipline and the triumph of
truth. The Crown and at the crest point to the goal of each student - to be
crowned victorious, shielded with truth . The Lily symbolizes purity which is
the chief characteristic of a true seeker of wisdom.
