Christ Academy functions under the able guidance of CMI (Carmelites of Mary Immaculate) fathers, who have, from time immemorial, contributed to the cause of social upliftment through their service in the fields of education and healthcare. They are credited with the founding of reputed establishments like Christ University, Amala Institute of Medical Sciences, Rajagiri Hospital and Amala Hospital in Kerala, in addition to engaging in various other humanitarian activities. Christ Academy Institute for Advanced Studies (CAIAS) is dedicated to Jesus Christ, the Supreme Guru, a guiding light that enlightens every individual who is a part of our academic community. Our source of inspiration is the founder of CMI, St. Kuriakose Elias Chavara, a great educationist who brought about revolutionary changes in the society through his decisive mission and farsighted vision. CAIAS strives to kindle the light of knowledge and wisdom in the hearts of all, thereby enlightening the various strata of society irrespective of gender, caste, region and religion.
The Career Guidance programme of CAIAS is a vital programme of the institution which equips our students for the vagaries of a career. This programme is initiated from the I Semester onwards to help students make an informed career choice. The objective of this programme is to identify each and every student’s individual talent commensurate with the needs of the industry and help them hone it. The training process involves various internship programmes, projects and classroom interventions under the auspiceies of a campus recruitment training programme (CRT) in their final year.

Christ Academy is college where we can follow our dreams. I really look forward to attending our classes. We engage ourselves with our faculty in absorbing discussions about subjects covered in the curriculum as well as current affairs topics. The faculty members work hard to help every student, whether it is related to academics or otherwise and provide unconditional support and encouragement. Every student is made to feel special! With industrial visits to TV and Radio studios, brain museums, participating in exhibitions and workshops, seminars, international conferences, toastmasters club, choir clubs, cultural and sports fest, the college provides us all with a wholesome experience.

Christ Academy Institute for Advanced Studies is an institution where the focus is on holistic education of the students. Since the motto of the institution is “Light to enlighten” the students from various socio-economic background are provided knowledge that is comprehensive in nature which includes imparting values and life skills to face life. The institute in addition to the university curriculum also offers a gamut of Add On courses as well as club activities which are components in the matrix of extra-curricular activities so that the students can be sensitized to the supplementary curriculum. The institution is young but has experienced tremendous growth and development over a short span of time. It has the potential to evolve into a world class self-styled institution. The most endearing quality of the institution is that it gives importance to research and provides ample scope to its faculty members to engage in research related activities.

It has been a pleasure to be a part of the Christ Academy Institute for Advanced Studies. Over the last 4 years I have been a witness to the phenomenal growth of this Institution. The Management has been successful in imparting quality education while upholding the values that the Institution stands for and has always aimed at the holistic development of its students and staff. I am proud to be a part of the Christ Academy family and hope to see the Institution grow from strength to strength.
Christ Academy is a wonderfully managed Institution with a well laid out systematic pedagogy, the course contents are crafted to accentuate the skills sets and knowledge base. The Institution does provide an environment conducive to effective teaching and learning. Being part of the Department of Commerce, the experience has been enthralling for me in building professional friendships and industry partnership. The multiple Conferences, Panel Discussions and Seminars on current Economic, Financial and Accounting topics have enlightened the students and faculty.
Having been a caged bird who was merely motivated for marks and grades, Christ Academy broke the cocoon with its concept of holistic development, moulded me as a complete person with ample opportunities to showcase my talents. This unique infrastructure engulfed by greenery, and love of teachers which is spread like sea shells in and out of the institution encourages us even more to reach greater altitudes.
