A Brief Historical Background

In ,1870 Jesuit Fathers came to Asansol to start Education Institutions to educate the people of Asansol working in Collieries, factories and Railways. Their sole aim was to uplift the people through Education especially through the English Higher Education. This English Higher Education would make the people to think and act in responsible freedom. This aim was expressed by our own great sonof the soiland greatest poet of our Nation Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore,who himself was astudent of Jesuit Fathers in Kolkata.
"Into that Heaven of Freedom, my Father,Let my Country Awake."
Asansol which was a small village grew into a major railway colony. As the railway net-work grew, the demand for English Higher Education increased.
