Like the proverbial mustard seed, the CJM School began as a co-educational school
in a rented cottage on Alipore Road, Old Delhi. However, in 1923, it was decided
to move it to Maria Bhavan, a cottage that stood on the grounds of the Sacred
Heart Cathedral, New Delhi. This day school began to grow rapidly and as expected,
it was decided shortly later to construct a proper school building. This made way
for the existing building whose foundation stone was laid in 1926.
The progress and development of the school was always marked by a harmonious
blend of both traditions, the East and the West.
The school takes responsibility to educate children of the Catholic community
and others who desire it, offering them all-round training in character development.
A program of Value-based Education is offered to all the students while Catholic
students are given Catechetic in addition.
