These Acharyas are present not only for the spiritual development of the students but also for that of the teachers. Weekly Vedanta classes are held for staffs and their spouses, as St. Joseph’s Academy believes that developing the right vision and values is as important for staffs as it is for pupils. Staffs can always approach management with any issues or concerns, or even simply for guidance or advice.|
