Christ Vidyanikethan, Irinjalakuda is run by the Christ Educational and Charitable Trust under the Carmelites of Mary Immaculate (CMI). It strives to realise the vision of Blessed Father Kuriakose Elias Chavara, prominent educationalist and social reformer of the 19th century and founder of the CMI congregation. Its goal is to nurture them to be intellectually competent, spiritually mature, morally upright, psychologically integrated, physically healthy and socially responsible. It also aims to mould students as torchbearers of justice, love and truth. To bring forward a generation of confident leaders is its ultimate ambition.
