Holy Cross School, Ranchi , is a Christian Minority School founded in 1974 and managed by the members of the International Christian Women Religious Congregation known as ‘Sisters of Mercy of Holy Cross’.
Fr. Theodosius Florentini OFM CAP and Mother Maria Theresa Scherer founded this congregation in Switzerland in the year 1856. The school aims at developing the students in totality, to make him/her a perfect creation of God. Top priority is given to character building on sound moral principles. A sense of responsibility and true development of mind and character should characterize boys and girls leaving the school. They should show this by being actively concerned about national development in the true spirit of freedom, equality, justice and peace. They should feel proud of the Institution and must have a distinguished character.
To attain the aims and objectives, the sisters, together with the whole team of staff, work towards the following:
To make the boys and girls spiritually strong, psychologically mature and mentally rich/healthy.
To help them to have right values in life and cultivate in them strong principles.
To help to bring out the innate and hidden talents in them.
To make them academically qualified to face the challenging competitions in life.
To make them understand true freedom, respecting the freedom of others and help to become responsible citizens who will be future catalysts for social changes.
All students are taught the essentials of religion, which are acceptable to people of all faiths. Efforts are made continually to develop and draw out values in the lives of all students.
The school has the extension work in various fields such as Vocational Training Programme, Formal and Non-Formal Education, health care and upliftment of women through saving scheme. In all these, the poor, oppressed and socially less privileged are given priority.
