Holy Cross School


Holy Cross School, a minority institution under Article 30 of the Indian Constitution was founded, established and is administered by the Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod, a registered charitable Society. The school is under the religious jurisdiction of the Catholic Archbishop of Kolkata Archdiocese. The Congregation of the Sisters of the Cross of Chavanod was Founded by Mother Claudine Echernier and Father Peter Mermier in 1838 at Chavanod in France, in the 19th century. As a result of the French Revolution, ignorance, misery and poverty prevailed. The deplorable situation of the young girls touched the heart of Mother Claudine Echernier. Strengthened by the Love of Christ who gave His life for the salvation of all and inspired by the courage of Mary at the foot of the Cross, Mother Claudine involved herself in eradicating ignorance and misery. With the support of Fr. Peter Mermier, Mother started this Congregation, dedicated to serve the needy and to educate the youth, especially the girls to transform the society.

The Characteristics of
Holy Cross Education

1. Total formation of each individual
2. Person oriented
3. Value-based
4. Faith -inspired
5. Towards a just society


The final outcome of our Education pattern is to help our students to shine forth the love of God by being lovable to all. We wish our students understand it well and grow towards it. All the
knowledge that they gain in the school should help them to form a better society, by sharing and caring for one another.


Empowered by the self emptying love of God and inspired by our Mother Foundress Claudine Echernier, we the Sisters of the Cross envision a just and harmonious society where all people live life in its fulliness.


Nurturing persons to be well integrated who in turn become agents of societal change.


Our goal is to form persons of character, conscience, compassion, commitment and competence, who having been enabled to face the challenges of life in the changing scenario, are sensitive to the needs of the poor and the marginalized and evolve as dynamic transcendent leaders of tomorrow.
