Convent of Jesus and Mary was established at Palle, Vasai in 1978. The sisters served at St. Bede’s Marathi Primary School. Later a Kinder Garden class was started, which helped the children obtain admission in nearby English medium schools. The number of students in St. Bede’s Marathi Primary School dwindled year by year and demand for an English medium was much greater.
Considering the needs of the people, Convent Of Jesus and Mary, an English Medium School was started in June 2000. A boon to the people of the Parish and those of other faiths, the School has grown up to Std. X by natural growth. Proud to be CJM students, the vibrant and enthusiastic first batch of boys and girls appeared for the SSC Board exams and obtained 100/- results.
The school stands for academic excellence, development of skills, character formation, instills cultural, moral and spiritual values. The Sisters take special care of the weak and needy children and brings about the total and all round development of every child as a person. Fee concession is given to poor students.
