The Rajagiri History
The genesis of Rajagiri was the result of the educational vision of Saint Kuriakose Elias Chavara, a great educationalist and social reformer of the 19thcentury, the founder of CMI congregation. The Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI), the first indigenous religious congregation of India with a membership of over 2500, renders its service to humanity in educational, social, healthcare and other activities aiming at the integral development of the society. The CMI vision for education places emphasis on the development of humane individuals, proficient, competitive and at the same time sensitive to the world around. Presently the CMIs manage nearly 500 educational institutions across the country and offer academic programs that range from pre-primary to post-doctoral levels. The CMI educational institutions provide high quality education, research, training, and consultancy in the area of Social Work, Management, Computer Science and Library Science. The CMIs have successfully built their brand in establishing educational programs of high quality in new disciplines, and this effort has been widely recognized and acknowledged.
