Education Empowers! Education Liberates! Education Transforms!

These are the principles that inspired the late Archbishop Mar Ivanios OIC, our founding father, to establish quality educational institutions, for the betterment of society. We, the members of Bethany Ashram have aspired to follow in his footsteps. For the past eighty five years we have nurtured his dreams and furthered his visions by continuing to set up educational institutions with improved and innovative methods of education, thereby making them an effective instrument of moulding the individual and thus changing society. Today our educational institutions have become synonymous with excellence affordable by all.

One such institution is our school – a co-educational school right in the heart of city of Thiruvananthapuram Navajeevan Bethany Vidyalaya. A school with a difference … for a difference.
