SANCTA MARIA INTERNATIONAL SCHOOL

With the philosophy, ‘To educate is to prepare a child for life,” Sancta Maria offers qualifications for Cambridge Primary, Cambridge Secondary 1, Cambridge IGCSE and Cambridge International AS & A levels.

SOUTH STATE BUSINESS SCHOOL
The South State Business School is the Society’s latest work in progress that aims to providing an environment that equips young graduates with a thorough understanding of world economics, sound leadership in business management and organization and practical know-how of how the vast business industry functions. This business school located in Chevella, Telangana, under the leadership of Director Abhiram Krishna aims at providing innovative programmes in Business Administration and creating young professionals who are nurtured to influence the world of business with a global perspective.
NAVANEETA PUBLIC SCHOOL
The town of Nellore in Andhra Pradesh is brimming with potential but a number of children are neglected and vulnerable. Surviving the hardships of street-life that drives them to beg or steal, some of them grow into troubled teenagers leading to delinquency. The local schools often have difficulty in providing the kind of education and environment that would make a significant and lasting impact on these children. The Navaneeta Public School is the Society’s response to this unwarranted negligence of boys and girls from less fortunate backgrounds. The School caters to the children of the marginalized and vulnerable section of the society, providing world-class education to those who can’t afford it, so that they can develop necessary capabilities, to compete in the modern day competitive world with the equal beginning. With its end-to-end facilities till high school, the school lays the foundation to break the cycle of poverty and build well-rounded, educated citizens who are tomorrow’s leaders and world changers.
From the Leadership Desk
“Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free;
Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls;
Where words come out from the depth of truth;
Where tireless striving stretches its arms towards perfection;
Where the clear stream of reason has not lost its way into the dreary desert sand of dead habits;
Where the mind is led forward by thee into ever-widening thought and action;
Into that heaven of freedom, my Father, let my country awake”
These remarkable words of Rabindranath Tagore reflect the heart of the St. Mary’s Educational Society. Our desire is to nurture young minds such as yours to believe, that no dream is too far fetched, no goal too hard to pursue and no thought too unimaginable to create. For over three decades our endeavor has been to create an environment where all of our students – Kindergarten to Post Graduation – meet their highest potential, are encouraged to build on impossibilities and to stand tall in a stiff-necked, competitive world. We believe that every student, regardless of his/her background, is capable of being a world changer in his/her field of choice. At our educational institutions has made opportunities available to excel in High School, Physical and Life Sciences, Political Science, Mass Communication and Journalism, Computers and Business, areas that foster the idea that if you allow it, the world is truly your oyster and nothing, nothing can keep you from being successful as long as you work hard in truth and integrity!
Nelson Mandela once said, “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world’. For St. Mary’s Educational Society, education is so much more than a certificate that you earn in order to secure a job. It is a journey of gaining knowledge, developing a skill, being able to think for yourself, to engage with critical thought, and above all to identify your calling. If you are able to walk out of our gates with just the understanding of what your purpose in life is – that right there is the fruit of our labor; that thorough conviction is reason we do what we do.
As you embark on this academic journey, we want to encourage you to remember that education is everything. It builds you to face a world that is broken and damaged in more ways than you can ever imagine. It gives you the wisdom to choose what is right. It equips you with the courage you need to change the world for good. All of our educational institutions – St. Mary’s Junior College, St. Mary’s College, Sancta Maria, Navaneetha Public School, South State Business School – endeavor toward just one goal – To nurture you into capable, productive, influential citizens of the society.
We wish you all the very best in everything you choose to pursue.
