The motto of the school was coined in Sanskrit by Fr. C. Bulcke, when courage to excel by all was considered a contribution towards the building up of one country and one nation.
The school is run by the Society of Jesus and provides education for about 1,000 students from kindergarten to standard 12. Plus two (+2) was started in 2000 and was run under the guidance of the late Hira Prasad. The Plus two section is co-educational otherwise the school is a boys-only school until standard 10th.
Until about 1976 the school followed the Cambridge Higher Secondary curriculum and now follows the (ICSE) curriculum. Many students from the school leave to join St. Xavier's College, Ranchi or other schools offering education beyond standard 10. The school feeds students into the engineering colleges (IITs and BIT, NIT's ,KIIT etc.) and medical colleges of India.
