Education based on the Carmelite way of life has been the main thrust of the Apostolic Carmel Congregation. How did the Apostolic Carmel come to Aldona ? It is when Mr. Edward Soares the principal of the St. Thomas High School in Aldona was seriously ill in 1947, he was advised perfect rest. His wife Mrs. Beatrice who was managing the Girls’ section from class 1-VI, decided to take over the Principal-ship of the Boys’ section and give over the girls’ section to some religious congregation.

On September 5th, 1950 the school got recognition from the Bombay University and from the Pune Board in April 1951. The first batch of students was sent up the following year and obtained cent-per-cent  results.

The congregation of the sisters of the Apostolic Carmel is an Indian Congregation which took its roots in the year 1870, in its Foundress Mother Veronica a holy and dedicated woman, who was divinely inspired to reach out to many girls of her day through education and other works of mercy.
