Chinmaya Vidyalaya - Education With A Difference

Jnanam eva vishisyate - Knowledge surpasses everything

"Education sans religion and philosophy is but a technical training that may bring out trained hands, but not educated men, who alone can count in the rediscovery of a nation"
Swami Chinmayananda

Under the principalship of Swami Prakashananda, Chinmaya Vidyalaya, the high school of the Chinmaya Mission, offers a blend of academic, spiritual and cultural education.

To complement the regular curriculum, Chinmaya Mission has developed the Chinmaya Vision Program (CVP) which fosters the development of truly educated, balanced and fulfilled individuals. CVP aims at giving the future citizens of Trinidad and Tobago a true vision of life to help them face challenges in a positive and dynamic manner, and heartily contribute to society.

Adopted from our Vidyalayas in India, the Chinmaya Vision Program can be identified under four heads below:

  1. Integrated development of the child
    To develop the physical, mental, intellectual and spiritual personalities of children in a balanced and concerted manner
  2. Culture
    To give children a wide exposure to the various aspects of our rich culture.
  3. Patriotism
    To create dedicated and committed citizens who take pride in serving the country
  4. Universal Outlook
    To make children appreciative of, and sensitive to, world issues and the environment.
