To educate orphans and socially underprivileged children regardless of sex, race, and religion is an important part of the mission of our school. It strives to help the children who are entrusted to its care to grow intellectually, psychologically, ethically and spiritually into young men and women who will be responsible members of the society.  Picture from Academic Department This department consists of the Kindergarten (KG1, KG2, & KG3), the Elementary School (grades 1 to 6), the Intermediate School (Grades 7 to 9), and the Secondary School (Grades 10 & 11).
