St. Joseph's Academies

Bureaucracy is the key to good governance and administration. To be a civil servant, a candidate must be given intensive structured training to crack the civil services examinations. Keeping this concern and in order to motivate the students who would prospectively become bureaucrats in the future, our management has taken a larger measure through St. Joseph’s Civil Services Academy.


The Academy aims to produce the able bureaucrats who would act as beacon of light for the welfare of the society. The academy aspires to create an avenue for the students to explore the opportunities in Indian Civil Services and Tamil Nadu Public Services (Group I services). The academy trains all of the students at free of cost, those who aspires to be an able and efficient civil servant.


  1. aims to produce qualified and passionate bureaucrats with a desire to facilitate change and bring welfare to our society.

  2. aspires to create an avenue where the students can explore and learn for themselves the opportunities available in Indian Civil Services.

  3. equips the students with well-planned knowledge based training and personality development.
