ST.JOSEPH'S HIGH SCHOOL, VELUPADAM was established in the year 1983 under the management of Archdiocese of Thrissur. In those days Velupadam was literally backward. The common people had no other go for education .
Rev.Fr Antony Chirayath , the former vicar of St. Joseph's Shrine, Velupadam founded this institution. He donated 3 acres of land and constructed an elegant double storeyed building with the co-operation of local people. Mr P.J Joseph , the then education Minister of Kerala , granted sanction to this school.
The foundation stone of the school was laid by His Excellency Mar.Joseph Kundukulam ; the former Arch Bishop of Thrissur on 11 th may 1983 .On 4 th march 1984, the school was opened by Shris T.M Jacob , the former Minister of Education.
St Joseph's High school is abundantly blessed with the grace of Saint Joseph , the head of Holy Family and guardian of Jesus Christ.
The school grabbed cent percent result for the S.S.L.C examination for the first three years consecutively. And it continued last year (March 2008) also. About 500 students are studying in this school in eighth, ninth and tenth standards .We are happy to say that we are celebrating the silver jubilee of our institution this year.
His Excellency Mar Andrews Thazhath , The Arch Bishop of Thrissur , Rev. Fr. Thomas Kakkassery , the corporate manager, Rev. Fr. Jose Thekkekara , the local manager , Shri P.O Varghese, our present Headmaster are the backbone who guide us to the heights.
Our educational endeavours aim at the integral development of the personality of every child so as to enable them to champion the cause of justice, love, truth and peace.
Though a minority catholic institution, St.Joseph's High School is open to all students irrespective of caste and creed; they are accepted and cherished as they are and are helped to grow in their cultural, social and religious traditions.
