I welcome you all to St Joseph’s Boys’ High School, Bengaluru, now in its 160 th
year and ranked among the oldest and most prestigious educational institutions
in India, with alumni spread across the world in the field of sports, public
service, defence and others. This is no happy accident – it is a result of our
robust Jesuit pedagogy and our love for what we do.
We strongly believe that education without moral bearings is merely instruction,
and so we take our spiritual role very seriously and aim to build liberal and open
minded individuals with sound moral values. We have a chapel on the premises,
celebrate festivals across religions and conduct annual inter religious workshops
and seminars. We understand that children are the society of tomorrow and so
their education holds the seeds of a more inclusive future.
Jesuit philosophy believes in grooming ‘men for others’. At St Joseph’s, we

education as empowering them to make a difference, to benefit society and the
We give academics and extra-curricular equal weightage, and felicitate
achievements in both. We offer a well rounded education with qualified
teachers and year-round access and participation in sports and other co
curricular activities. Our well equipped classrooms and modern laboratories are
matched by top class sports facilities and we regularly host and play intra and
inter school matches.
We believe that parents are our partners, and it is a joint effort to raise a
balanced and motivated individual. We urge parents to stay connected to their
children and take an interest in their lives.
We have a very large number of scholarships for needy students, and we are
proud to say that many of them have been instituted by Old Boys of our school
who support the wide social and economic diversity from which our students
Our teaching and non teaching staff is our strength. On a day-to-day basis they
nurture your child, stimulating their minds and bringing out their potential.
When Old Boys return to their alma mater, it is these teachers (traditionally
referred to affectionately as ‘Cher’), who they seek out, to thank and to inform
of their progress in the world outside.
We appreciate your interest in our institution and we hope our contemporary
website with its many pages of information and details will serve as an
accessible gateway to information on our school.
