A Catholic school forms part of the saving mission of the church, especially for
education in the faith.
The Convent of Jesus and Mary School, New Delhi which has been established
by the Jesus and Mary, Delhi Educational Society, a Christian minority institution,
aims primarily at the education of the Catholic community and the preservation of
Catholic faith and religious practice.
Preference will be given to Catholic children for admission in the school. Admission
will, however, be open to children of other communities without distinction of caste
With a view to preserving our Catholic faith, classes in religion will be conducted
and it is obligatory for Catholic children to attend these classes.
A Catholic school is not simply a place where lessons are taught; it is a centre
that has an operative educational philosophy, attentive to the needs of today's
youth and illumined by the message of the Gospel. A thorough and exact knowledge
of the real situation will suggest the best educational methods.
The school stands for academic excellence, development of skills and character formation,
based on the love of God and the service of man as modelled on the person of Jesus
The primary aim of the teaching faculty of the Convent of Jesus and Mary is to make
God known and loved; therefore, the spiritual development of all their pupils
is their prime concern.
