Our Vision

St. Joseph’s Academy, shall impart total education in a sincere, dedicated and self-confident manner to bring about qualitative progress in all spheres of education. We will inculcate in our students, the everlasting values that will help them to develop their true potential to the optimum. We will work selflessly to make this world a better place. We seek to inspire rather than dictate. We strive towards understanding and appreciation rather than condemnation.

We resolve to increase our sensitivity towards all; to work together as a team by accepting each other’s shortcomings. Our endeavour will be to be open to suggestions. We will be well mannered and courteous, leading by personal example. We will develop a professional attitude towards work.

Our School will be a place where harmony, co-operation and peace exist and where each will continue to grow and strive towards excellence.

“Vital to the quality of life is the ability to work together, learn from each other, and help each other grow”.

Aims & Objectives

  1. St Joseph’s Academy, Dehradun, founded in 1934, is managed by the members of the Congregation of the Brothers of St. Patrick, whose educational institutions in India and abroad are highly appreciated for sound moral, intellectual and physical education imparted to the children entrusted to their care.
  2. The Brothers consider the formation of character, the first essential requisite of any sound educational system and so great stress is laid on the inculcation of high ideals, refined behaviour and moral rectitude. Religious instruction is imparted to Catholic pupils only. All other pupils are given a comprehensive course in Value Education. In teaching the humanities and sciences, the aim is to impart sound practical knowledge based on the latest techniques and the requirements of the syllabus of the Indian School Certificate Examination (class XII). Games and Physical training have an appropriate place in the Time Table.
  3. A proper use of audio-visual and library facilities is encouraged Study circles and participation in debates, declamation, elocution, quiz contests, dance and music are some of the cultural and educational activities in which students are expected to participate in order to build confidence and self-esteem.
  4. Physical training, games and athletics are employed to the best advantage to promote physical development and a healthy spirit of competition. The school has ample playing fields and provides facilities for games such as Football, Cricket, Hockey, Volleyball, Basketball, Throw ball, Tennis, Badminton and Table Tennis. While competent staff is always present to give any guidance, the fullest scope is given for initiative and leadership among the students themselves. Training is imparted during the Physical Education periods and outside school hours. Inter-House competitions in all fields and Inter-School Athletic and Sports Meets help the students in keeping up the spirit of healthy competition and sportsmanship.
  5. Students found talented in sports and any of the above activities are expected to be regular for practices. Irregularity is considered irresponsible behaviour and lack of loyalty to the institution, and will be taken as a serious breach of discipline.
  6. Keeping in mind the harmonious development of each pupil and the forming of a fully integrated person; we also offer through our teachers, a variety of hobbies to the students.
