The Rajagiri Public School was started in 1994 by the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI) of the Sacred Heart Province, Rajagiri, Kalamassery.

Since the establishment of the first Catholic Sanskrit School in Kerala in 1846, the CMI congregation has upheld foremost the ideals of its heavenly patron Blessed Kuriakose Elias Chavara (1805-1871) in establishing a wide network of educational institutions all over India. A distinguishing feature of these educational institutions is that they draw inspiration from the life of Jesus Christ as also from the sages and prophets of our land and are deeply rooted in its culture.

The CMI Vision of Education consists in ‘the formation of the human person for the fulfillment of his/her individual and responsibilities’. It aims at forming leaders” who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace and who are ever open to further growth”. Education for complete living has been the watchword of all its educational projects and programmes.

The Rajagiri Public School stands as yet another landmark in the’ abode of learning’ that is the Rajagiri campus. It imparts quality education and enriches the learning environment in order to optimize each child’s overall development and help realize its full potential. The focus is on bringing up caring, confident youngsters who will uphold moral and spiritual values and eventually take their place as productive, responsible members of society.
