Welcome to Christ Academy Institute for Advanced Studies!
Christ Academy Institute for Advanced Studies (CAIAS), affiliated to Bangalore University, is a unique academic community that has a great heart and passion for serving the needs of its students. It has been a privilege and a pleasure to see how much this fraternity has grown academically and socially during these years as the college renders valuable service to the society at large. Christ Academy Institute for Advanced Studies is much more than a cluster of lifeless concrete blocks in the midst of greeneries and surrounded waterscapes. It is a great academic fraternity formed as a part of a precious CMI heritage, sustained by the ardent love of knowledge. Christ Academy Institute for Advanced Studies, a minority Catholic educational institution, shows its preferential love for young men and women who come to it from the multiple spectra of caste, creed and gender. The college instils in them the values of life, and makes them fully conscious of their potential of their commitment towards the society. Students are accepted and cherished as they are, and are helped to grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions.
Institutions under Christ Academy have a history to unravel. It is the history of the formation of a community ignited by the light of wisdom; the history of a generation who designed their lives in faith and raised their children as per the promptings of the spirit of St. Chavara, our Founder. It is the fulfilment of the dream of great CMI visionaries. Since its inception, the college has been rendering valuable service in higher education to the advancement of the educationally, socially and economically backward people in and around the suburbs of Bangalore. The growth of academic programs indicates a continuous journey beyond the threshold of mediocrity to soar into an ever-continuing explorative experience in quality education.
At this point of time when the whole world is battling the COVID 19 pandemic, it is a time to deepen our conviction about the divine providence of the Almighty. As the new ways of being and living with ‘the new normal’, we experience systemic changes in the approaches to education. It demands us to continue striving in constructive engagement to accept change and provide space for growth, bring out the finest qualities and harness the talents and skills of every student who enters the portals of this great institution. I am glad to be a part of this academic community, as it moves to the next phase. Indeed, it is my privilege to welcome the students, staff and all academic fraternity who visit this portal. We are committed to provide a comprehensive profile of the College updated from time to time, and it will keep you connected with us. I am sure that the efforts that we put in as a team will indeed bear fruit and bring forth a hundredfold.
God’s Blessings !
