St. Joseph’s Convent School is a Catholic educational institution conducted by the Religious of the Congregation of the Daughters of the Cross. The name of the Managing Body of the school is St. Joseph’s Education and Medical Relief Society. The School falls within the religious jurisdiction of the Archdiocese of Bombay
It is aided by the Govt of Maharashtra. The course of study is arranged according to the syllabus laid down by the Department of Education, Maharashtra.
Admission is open to girls of all castes and creeds. Value Education forms an important part of the school curriculum.
The school strives to impart a sound liberal education aimed at the development and full flowering of the total personality of the child. Hence, education is directed towards the training of the pupils’ intellectual, moral, spiritual, emotional, physical and aesthetic endowments and such cultural attainments as are suited for girls.
In the true spirit of education for all, especially the weak, the school admits students challenged in different ways – economically, socially, physically and intellectually – and gives them the special care they need. Academics is paramount and co-curricular activities not far behind.
The students are conscientised in the direction of environmental and social justice issues. Students interact with the disadvantaged in the city and even visit the rural areas for a first hand life experience where 80% of India’s population live. Through these programmes, we hope to sensitise them to the poor and needy and so to stir the hearts of our students to fight for the rights of the oppressed.
We strive to create good patriotic citizens, mindful of their own rights and eager to work towards ensuring the rights of others, especially the marginalised.
This is education at St. Joseph’s and we go “Forward God Helping” !!!!
