Education Vision

"Intelligence plus character-that is the goal of true education."
- Martin Luther King Jr.
Vision and Goals of Franciscan Education

Our vision is the vision of Jesus, that all may have life and have it in abundance.

We envision the transformation of individual persons, of institutions and of structures which would result in a just, equitable and inclusive society, making real the Reign of God on earth (Dharma Rajya).

The goal of education is to teach the students to live, to discover the deeper meaning of life and transcendence, to learn to interact with others to love cration, to think freely and critically to find fulfillment in work to plan their future, or in one word, to learn “to be”. It is in and through education that one can hope for a more human and humane future and a more harmonious society.

Special efforts should be made to enable students:

  1. To think for themselves independently and critically
  2. To seek extend and apply knowledge to the solution of human problems
  3. To continually strive for excellence in every field
  4. To become mature, and spiritually aware men and women of character
  5. To value and judiciously use their freedom, combing with it full sense of responsibility for actions
  6. To be cleat and firm on principles and courageous in action
  7. To be unselfish in the service of their fellow men and women concerned for the welfare of the poor and socially oppressed
  8. To become agents of needed social change in their own situations

Education, by its very nature is a transformative process, namely changing human persons, and through them, society and its structure. This activity of transformation is a spiritual, humanizing and liberating one and constitutes the core mission of education. In the knowledge society that is emerging ‘quality of education’serves as the gateway to the socio-cultural and economic development of persons and of the country.
