fr roncyFr. Agnel Central School situated in the powerful ambience of Govapuri, the ancient port capital of Goa, is an epitome of Catholic Holistic Education. While the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), to which Fr. Agnel Central School is affiliated, envisions ''a robust, vibrant and holistic school education that will engender excellence in every sphere of human endeavour'', the latter permeates this vision of the CBSE with the mission statement of the Catholic Education Policy, ''to provide education of Quality and Relevance to every child specially the Catholics and the marginalized'', thus whispering hope for the minorities and the children of a pre-dominantly rural neighbourhood.

Fr. Agnel Central School, founded in 2008, is one foundational unit of a progressively dynamic Educational Complex in Pilar, managed by the Xaverian Educational Society (XES) (a Registered Society under the Societies Registration Act, 1860). A student that enters this vibrant campus as a kindergarten student finds a home and a laboratory at the same time. The ''home type'' comfortable atmosphere in this campus propels every student to explore the diversity of talents (one is blessed with) and along with the infused knowledge is kept in good stead to develop corresponding skills and a fine attitude to life. Our students following the motto of the school ''Growing in Fullness'' are formed to be physically fit, mentally focussed, emotionally balanced and spiritually inspired.

While moving up the rungs of school education, the campus provides opportunities of higher learning at the same campus. This is indeed a big benefit to a major chunk of our students (who come from the neighbouring rural areas). This school fits into the thrust of XES ''to bring quality and relevant education'' to this rural area of the Ilhas region bringing the village native students to heights of excellence. Consequently, some of our students may enter our campus as a K.G student and will eventually move out of the campus with a legitimate doctorate or a post-graduate degree or diploma. That's where lies the enormous impact of belonging to Pilar Educational Complex.

All the activities in the school campus are meant to develop students holistically into responsible national & global citizens.Fr. Agnel Central School remains committed to provide a proactive learning campus that will develop the required competence and confidence in the students and their parents to produce enterprising citizens who will promote harmony and peace in the country and in the cosmos.


The school was established in order to raise the quality and standard of education and to strive for all round excellence so that the children may be equipped to compete on equal footing with other children of the country.In a spirit of collaboration and co-operation, the school envisages the following :-

  • 1. To strive relentlessly for qualitative excellence in academics.
  • 2. To provide appropriate and ample opportunities for all round development of the child.
  • 3. To encourage personal and group creativity.
  • 4. To make education more personalized with personal attention and personal study and to make it research oriented.
  • 5. To develop sound moral, social and human values in the child.
  • 6. To equip each child with skills according to his/ her talent and capabilities and to build up self confidence, responsibility and leadership qualities.
  • 7. To teach the children to live harmoniously with each other irrespective of caste, colour or creed.
  • 8. To develop a deep sense of Nationalism and one’s responsibility towards the growth and progress of the nation.
