Carmel CMI Public School is a Senior Secondary School, affiliated to the CBSE. Its Inception was in the year 2003-2004 with only the Kindergarten and class 1. The current enrolment of 1355 students consist both girls and boys. Entry is usually from LKG at the age of four and most student’s progress through the school to the higher classes. We are convinced that the aim of all education is the formation of the human person for the fulfilment of his individual and social responsibilities. We concentrate more on quality than on quantity and foster good inter-personal relations. Carmel CMI Public School is directly under the supervision of the religious priests in the ST. ANTONY’S CARMEL HOUSE PULIYANMALA. The house was established in the year 1966.
Carmel CMI Public School is a residential school, affiliated to the CBSE, run by the Kottayam St. Joseph’s Province of the Religious Congregation of the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI). The School is under the Management of Carmel Vidya Peet Educational and Charitable Trust, consisting of a team of educationists. The school is situated in a serene, beautiful atmosphere, embellished by enthralling tea gardens and enchanting hilly sides, and tranquil surroundings. Considering the fact that in education we share the responsibility of the nation, we make special efforts to co-ordinate our educational activities with the aims and goals of the nation so that our students may grow up as responsible citizens fully involved in the task on nation-building.
It is with these twin aims that we have entered the field of education and run more than a hundred schools, about thirty colleges including professional colleges and a deemed university. Being convinced of the importance of education in the modern world and keeping alive the legacy inherited from our founder, St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, who was a pioneer in the field of education in Kerala, almost one third of the members of the Congregation are engaged in this apostolate.

The school aims at providing the students with a perfect ambience for learning with the combined efforts of the responsive parents, talented teachers committed management and industrious students. We share to reach out to the star of excellence not only in the academic pursuits but also in every aspect to achieve perfection. Being a CMI Educational Institution the school regards education as a holistic formation of the human person for the fulfilment of his/her individual and social responsibilities.
The Motto of the school is ‘Life in the Light of Truth’. The Motto of the School goes on to say that in the Indian context, education, by its very nature, is a transformative process, namely changing human persons, and through them, society and its structures. This activity of transformation is a spiritual, humanizing and liberating activity and constitutes the mission of education.
We, the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate, after the example of our founder, St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, consider education as an integral formation of the human person for the fulfilment of his/her individual and social responsibilities. Our educational endeavours aim at forming leaders who are intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy and socially acceptable, who will champion the cause of justice, love, truth, brotherhood and peace and open to further growth and change.
The secret of the success of our educational institution is a community of committed teachers, who are professionally competent, morally sound, right, just and human in their dealings. We aspire towards creating a just and human society where dignity of the human person is respected, where our cultural heritage of ahimsa, religious harmony and national integration are upheld and where the poor and the marginalized are specially taken care of. These institutions which are established by and for a minority community will give preference to Christians in admission and appointments and have a special concern for the faith formation of the Christian youth. Our institutions are open to society at large by making their resources available for the ongoing education and non-formal teaching.
St. Chavara was a trend-setter in the univerzalisation of education and making it available to all sections of the society. He also took initiative in imparting quality education with formation in values so that not only the individuals grow holistically but also they become instruments in social mobility and social transformation. Carrying on this legacy, we also try to be trend-setters in education; for this, we have an educational policy in agreement with the national policy of the Church and in the spirit of our own CMI legacy, and implement it in all our educational institutions.
