About

Institute Type: other

The Thomas Baptista Primary School, which was founded in 1889, has now flourished into a full-fledged educational institution harbouring the Primary, High School, Junior College and MCVC faculty. This highly renowned educational institution of Vasai was started by Mr. Thomas Baptista, a generous layman from Papdy, Vasai; a great lover of knowledge and educational visionary. He had realized the importance of English education in India and he started the Anglo Vernacular English School on September 12, 1889. The school was then run by the Bombay East Indian Association and its primary goal was to cater to the educational needs of the catholic children from Vasai and its vicinity. It also admitted a big number of students of the other religions, castes and creed. During its early years, it encouraged education among girls by providing free education to them.

Since 1930, the school has been under the management of the priests of the diocese. In 1975, according to the new education policy of the 10+2+3 pattern, the Thomas Baptista Junior College was started with Arts, Commerce and Science faculties. Over the years, new job-oriented courses were started to cater to the needs of the time. Subjects such as the Small scale Industries, English and Marathi Stenography, Electronics, Computer Science and Information Technology were introduced. The Minimum Competency Vocational Courses; viz. Electronics Technology, Accounting and Auditing and Maintenance and Repairs of Electrical Domestic Appliances have been taught since October 1988. The total student strength of the Primary, High School, Junior College is about 2700.

Since its inception, the institute has been admitting students irrespective of of any religion, caste, creed and socio-economic background. The smooth functioning of the institution has been possible due to the commitment, cooperation and teamwork among the past and present Principals and the teaching and the non-teaching staff. The institution continues to impart the necessary skills and training to students to enable them to cope with the challenges that lie ahead in this competitive world.
