If a country is to be corruption free and become a nation of beautiful minds, I strongly feel there are three key societal members who can make a difference. They are the father, the mother and the teacher.

While the world around us is changing everyday, we insist on teaching our students to grow with strong values. We believe these values will enable them to be better human beings who positively impact the world around them
Our Core Values
Started by Chooravilla Joseph Development Foundation in 2002, Sacred Heart School was formed to provide world class education to the children in the small village of Kollam, Kerala. Over the last 13 years, Sacred Heart School has grown in leaps and bounds.
With students who have excelled at the national level in the field of academics, sports and cultural activities, the talent Sacred Heart houses and nurtures is endless.
Sacred Heart School started off in a house with only 63 students between the ages of 3 and 6. Today, we house a student body of 581 on a 3.5 acre campus.
We received our affiliation to CBSE in 2015 and currently run from pre-primary till Grade X.
We hope to continue making a difference to the students in Kollam with high quality holistic education.
