Vision & Mission

Christian missionaries without a doubt are the pioneers of modern education in India. Their single minded mission of education and enlightenment for the masses has been maintained by the Church till the present day.

It was with this purpose in mind that Rt. Rev B. Malakar, the most revered Bishop of the Diocese of Barrackpore, Church of North India, embarked upon an ambitious project of establishing an English Medium co-educational institution at Habra.

In 1995, “St. Paul’s School” at 183, Jessore Road, 24 Parganas (N), Habra-743 263 opened its doors to young minds. In 2001 it was re-christened “St. Stephen’s School”.

St. Stephen’s School, Habra belongs to the category of Christian Minority Institutions, covered under article 30 of the Constitution of India. It is managed by the Barrackpore Diocesan Educational Society and governed by the Diocese of Barrackpore, Church of North India. It is recognized by the School Education Department, Government of West Bengal and is affiliated to the Council for Indian School Certificate Examinations, New Delhi.

St.Stephen’s School, Habra is based upon and directed by on Christian ideals and principles and exists solely for the purpose of promoting sound education, particularly spiritual, social physical and moral in nature.

The aim of the school is to give to its students a complete quality education of body, mind and spirit through academic instruction and an education of creation in which students are encouraged to learn for themselves by thinking of suitable solutions to the everyday problems they face.

The entire system of education is based on developing the noble character of the students and on inspiring them to develop a true love for Humanity and Morality.
