De Nobili SchoolS are managed by the members of the Society of Jesus (Jesuits). They are assisted by a team of dedicated teachers, staff and Religious Sisters. The Jesuits are active in the field of education throughout the world. In India they have established many schools and colleges in which young people, belonging to every community, are being educated through the medium of English and other regional languages. The work of these institutions is part of the Catholic Church’s effort to share in the country’s educational mission.
De Nobili Schools are affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations. The Council has received statutory recognition from the Government of India as one of the main All India School Examining bodies.
The Schools are owned and managed by De Nobili Jealgora, a registered society. The responsibility for the day-to-day running of the school is vested in the Principal.
As a Christian School, De Nobili has for its inspiration and guidance, the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. Hence, special attention is paid to the admission and education of Christian students and to the selection of teachers and administrators with Christian values. Though a Christian minority school, all students are admitted, irrespective of caste or creed.
For ordinary expenses, fees are the only source of income. Since no Government aid is received, fees have to be adjusted from time to time to keep up with rising costs and salaries. Hence, school reserves the right to increase the fees at anytime of the year. For expansion and new facilities, the school depends on the contribution of local companies and the generosity of alumni, friends and parents.
