Our Vision

AKJM School, a Jesuit Institution for Secondary Education, draws its inspiration from Jesus Christ and envisions the formation of boys and girls with noble character. It strives for the development of the whole person making him/her committed to the establishment of a just and caring social order.

Our Mission

As an educational institution our main role will be to provide an environment and training context for the students to prepare themselves for active and responsible life commitment (commitment is not needed)for the formation of a just society.

Our Aim

Like other Jesuit Educational Institutions AKJM aims at the training of girls and boys of quality, who would grow up as creative leaders and responsible citizens in the service of the people. Every effort is made to see that the students become intellectually equipped, morally upright, socially committed and God conscious. Christian truths, values and perspectives provide illumination for the education that is offered here. Though AKJM is primarily meant for Catholics, it is open to all without any distinction of caste or creed.

Our Motto

Our motto on the School emblem, "Lead Kindly Light" is a hymn with words written in 1833 by John Henry Newman. It means a steady, step by step movement in darkness or in ailment, with Jesus Christ as the ‘true light’. It is the duty of the educator to guide the students through the path of the ‘True Light’ that leads them to a committed and meaningful life.

Our Characteristics

The education offered in AKJM is in line with the definite stand taken by the Society of Jesus with regard to the Apostolate of Education all over the world. In 1986 the 400th Anniversary of the "Ratio Studiorum" (Plan of studies drawn up by Jesuits when we entered into the Apostolate of Education) was celebrated. On that occasion the document prepared by the International Commission on the Apostolate of Jesuit Education (ICAJE) was presented to the whole Society by the then General Fr. Peter Hans Kolvenbach, S. J.

The document highlights the following:

Person Oriented: by paying individual attention to each student and making the teaching and learning student centred.

Integral Formation and Development: by paying special attention to intellectual, affective, imaginative, aesthetic, creative, critical, communicative, physical, cultural, moral and spiritual aspects of the individual.
Faith in God and Religious Experience: by promoting well formed and strongly held beliefs in one’s faith tradition to deepen others’ relationships with God.

Values-based leadership: by ensuring a consistent focus on personal integrity, ethical behaviour in business and all professions, and the appropriate balance between justice and fairness.

Commitment to Excellence: by applying well learned lessons and skills to achieve new ideas, better solutions and vital answers.

Relevant to the times: by adapting to the concrete situations, politically, socially and culturally

Service that promotes justice: by using learning and leadership in open handed and generous ways to ensure freedom of inquiry, the pursuit of truth and care for others.

Participative: by the interaction of the pupil, parents and teachers. Jesuit Education holds on to the catch word ‘magis’ meaning better than the best in every activity.
