Objectives

Jesuit education is inspired by a vision of man drawn from the life and teachings of Jesus Christ and based on the principles of character formation elaborated by Ignatius of Loyola. The Jesuits engaged in educational work throughout the world for the last 400 years, reaffirm conviction that the formation of youth through their educational institutions continues to be one of the foremost services they can render to their people.

They believe that an essential need of their country is for a community of persons with deep faith, sound knowledge, intellectual and emotional maturity and more integrity, persons able and willing to render generous service to their fellowmen & women in building up a truly human society. It is therefore to the formation of such a community of persons that they commit their educational institutions. The education they would impart includes both physical and intellectual development as well as acquisition of useful skills in all of which they aim at excellence.

Being at the service of the whole country, St. Vincent's accepts boys from every caste, creed and community and strives to educate them in the high ideals of humanism and unselfish service of their fellowmen and women. hence the purpose of this school is not only to impart instruction but also to educate the whole boy.

  • to help the students to become mature, spiritually oriented men of character, free from egoism and self seeking and from all attempts to exploit one's fellowmen and women;
  • to encourage them continually to strive after excellence in every field, without however neglecting the welfare and need of their fellowmen and women;
  • to value and judiciously use their freedom;
  • to be clear and firm on principles and courageous in action;
  • to become agents of needed social change in the country.
