“The Institute has as its main aim the education of the poor girls… What I have learnt in prayer, I will teach to others.” -FD 4

Our Educational institutions derive their inspiration from the life and teachings of our Lord and Redeemer Jesus Christ. Following the values imbibed by St. Bartolomea Capitanio from Jesus the Redeemer, we instill the same in our charges.

Christian education is the formation of the whole person after the image of God and of Christ according to St. Bartolomea. Education of the young was for her a service of charity. Bartolomea places before us the nobility of our vocation and our responsibility before God and His people.

We have 12 educational Institutions run by our management in the Twin cities, Districts of A.P. and one in Maharashtra. We render our services in 10 Diocesan schools in the Districts of A.P. and one in Egypt. We render our services through Kindergarten, pre Primary, Primary School, High schools, Higher Secondary schools, National Open School ( NOS) mainly for the school drop outs and the adults., Junior, Degree, PG, Professional colleges, School of Nursing and college of Nursing.

The majority of the Sisters are engaged in the Educational Apostolate. We have no caste or creed barriers in our Institutions and our preference is for the poorest who have a special place in our Institutions.

The vision of Bartolomea guides us to improve the quality of our education. Spiritual formation forms an important part of our education through retreats, weekly prayer meetings, orientation programmes, seminars, Value Education classes, Moral science classes etc.

Faith Formation of the children is given great importance through the teaching of Catechism, recollection days, Bible study, Bible Quiz, Mass and confession every month, talks and retreats. Special attention is given to our boarders in our Boarding Homes.

Our educational Institutions are made use of for the needs of the Church and of the locality, for the holding of coaching classes for the poor etc.
