About the School
THE INSTITUTE OF THE BLESSED VIRGIN MARY(LORETO)was founded by Mary Ward(1585-1645), a dynamic English Catholic lady, during the most turbulent times in England when Catholics were being persecuted, and Europe was being troubled by religious intolerance and the rights of women were unheard of. It was under these circumstances that Mary Ward, who had been called to a religious life when she was all of 15 years, took it upon herself to envision a very active order, working in society for the education and upliftment of women. The task set by our founders continues to be carried out by her spiritual daughters and Mary Ward herself remains as an ever inspiring figure to young women worldwide. On 19th December 2009, Pope Benedict XVI declared Mary Ward as Venerable and recognition was given to her as a woman of heroic virtue.

Its prime purpose is the education of Catholic girls, students of other denominations are also accepted. The aim of the school is to give its pupils a sound moral education while devoting special attention to their intellectual, social, physical and emotional development. The ideal of service is set before the pupils who are expected to give themselves unselfishly to their immediate duty, to possess an awareness of the needs of those around them which will bring them, eventually, to a realization that the welfare of humankind requires that all contribute to society, by helping and serving one's fellowmen. It is hoped that the pupils of Loreto will leave the school with a strong conviction that, "happiness consists not in what you can get, but in what you can give"(Gandhiji). All girls, therefore, from Class VI upwards are required to do some form of social work.
