There is a popular epigram which says, “Whatever that liberates is education”. It is very true. Education liberates the mind and soul of man from all debilitating forces. St.Kuriakose Elias Chavara, the founder of the CMI congregation, was a man who realized this great truth in the second half of the 19th century and used it as a powerful means to bring about a social change in the Kerala society of his period which was stratified on the basis of caste. He played a pivotal role in creating a just society in Kerala by establishing schools throughout the length and breadth of the State where everyone could study irrespective of their caste or creed, thereby making schools the epicenter of social change. St. Joseph’s Academy of Higher Education and Research, Moolamattom, drawing inspiration from the legacy of this great seer, St.Kuriakose Elias Chavara, has been shedding its light of knowledge in the backward district of Idukki ever since its inception in 2007. During the past one and half a decade we have made our presence felt in the field of higher education. Both in the field of sports education and in the other fields of arts and science such as BCA, B.A Animation, Commerce and M.Sc. Actuarial Science our performance has been exemplary and we stand today as one of the premier institutions in the field. We are aware of the challenges ahead but we are always confident of updating our strategies to meet them lock, stock and barrel. Adhering to the motto of the institution “Fly in Excellence” we are proud to go an extra mile to provide an holistic education to our students which will enable them to lead a richer and fuller life with all their faculties and skills properly developed.
