An increasing quest for quality education inspired Franciscan sisters of St. Joseph’s to establish St. Joseph’s school in the year 1982, which was inaugurated as a Matriculation school in the year 1985. Then it has been upgraded to the +2 level to cherish the long felt need for a full fledged English medium school in this Maraimalainagar – Kanchipuram district locality. This school comes under the judicious management of the superior general. The note – worthy motto of the school is “Learn to lead”! The school has completed thirty two years of dedicated service in the field of education. The greatest delight is that our school has celebrated its “Silver Jubilee” in 2007.

Another praise-worthy milestone in the record of St. Joseph’s is the dedicated educational commitment to quality education by Rev. Sr. Rita Michael, which knows no bounds, made her secure the “Vocational Excellence” Award from the Rotary club of Maraimalainagar and thus she has placed the management staff and students of the school in the top position! St. Joseph’s focuses its attention on the need to impart an integral formation to its students and drives students to aspire to grow in knowledge and various skills to take up challenges in life to explore potential for their varied talents!
