A just and caring social order created by integrally developed and socially transformed students.
Drawing inspiration from Jesus Christ, we aim at providing an environment and training context for the students who would grow up as creative leaders, upright in public life and ready to serve people.
Our motto, as inscribed on the School emblem, is Lead Kindly Light. It is reminiscent of Cardinal John Henry Newman's famous hymn of 1833. It implies our acceptance of Jesus Christ as the way and the truth and the life (John 14:6), and it professes our commitment to guide our students along the path of discernment and righteousness so that they may lead a more rewarding life of integrity and contentment.

Person - oriented approach
Integral formation

Welcome to AKJM Higher Secondary School

In the year 1961 Rev Fr George Thachenkary, the then Parish Priest of St Dominic's Church, Kanjirapally made a proposal to his parishioners at the parish assembly to establish an English Medium School. The community unanimously agreed to it and they made a request to the Jesuits , known as the Schoolmen of Europe to start a school in Kanjirapally. The Jesuits took up the challenge and started the school as the Sacerdotal Silver Jubilee Memorial of Mar Mathew Kavukatt, then Archbishop of Changanacherry. It was named AKJM (Archbishop Kavukattu Jubilee Memorial) High School.



Jesuit Education depends mainly on the Ignatian spirit. It goes far beyond the achievement of academic excellence. Jesuit education looks forward to a change of heart that leads to an unreserved generosity to God and their fellow beings (Jesuit Educational Aims and Objectives).

As a Jesuit school, our school is called to form students into intellectually competent, loving, healthy, mature and faithful young adults. Change in the whole person-mind, body, spirit and soul. Our students learn the best of the human culture, use of knowledge for common good and consider themselves as global citizen for the welfare of the whole universe. This is the true Jesuit Education: Forming Agents of Change.

-Fr Augustine Peedikamala SJ
