Don Bosco’s capability to attract numerous youngsters was connected to his “System of Education based on Love.” He believed education to be a “matter of the heart” and said that the young must not only be loved, but know that they are loved. It creates a climate that ‘draws forth’ the best in the youth, encouraging them for a complete and full expression of themselves. His educational system assists young people in acquiring habits that will lead them to opt in favour of what is good, healthy, joyful and life-enhancing.
“Ad Astra per Aspera” “Through hardship to the stars” is the aspirational motto of the college which is to enable students to generate new ideas, concepts and associations and to imbibe excellence as a personal core value envisaged in a personal journey towards perfection.
