Welcome to Chh Shivaji Junior College, a milestone of academic excellence and extracurricular performances which has enlarged and enriched Kolhapur’s educational map. As we embark into the celebration of Silver Jubilee, our commitment at Sanjeevan is to provide a safe and intellectually challenging environment that will empower students to become innovative thinkers, creative problem solvers and inspired learners prepared to thrive in the 21st century.In25 years of its reign, Chh Shivaji Junior College has imparted quality education, strong & dynamic entrepreneurs have evolved out of this institute. Chh Shivaji Junior College is the one which is leading institute in Kolhapur and which has reached its highest pinnacle in the education sector.

Most of the residential schools are, unfortunately, still following the western pattern of daily routine, holiday plans, catering menus and cultural activities, while I strongly feel that there is a need for customization in the public school system, reorienting it to Indian culture and traditions. Keeping this in view we have experimented in a small way and initiated few changes, which have already started bearing fruit.

At Chh Shivaji Jr. College, we help the children to tap their hidden potential by exposing them to diverse opportunities and a large number of activities. The State board based, liberal education also helps them to rise above parochial mindsets and acquire a truly international outlook. In addition to this,children are trained to learn more by doing things themselves and trying out new ideas, taking failure and success in their stride, with all their energies focused on honest and purposeful effort.

The major driving force behind my taking up this school project has been the mixed experience of a variety of parents with regard to boarding schools in India. My own children went to some of the best boarding schools in India and this gave me an opportunity of observing very closely various good and also some other not so good features of the boarding school education system.

I have every hope and belief that The Chh Shivaji Jr. College is going to become a premier co-ed residential institution of its kind in this part of the world in the near future, amply fulfilling the educational aspirations of the parents who bring their children to its portals.

High standards and expectations for each student in regard to academic performance,co-curricular participation and responsible citizenship are the foundation of our institute. It is with pride that we hold these high standards and ask each of our students to commit to maintaining the extra ordinary record of achievement and contribution that has been the legacy of Chh Shivaji Junior College students for the past 25 years.

The college has a distinguish reputation in the field of sports and cultural activities too. Our sports and cultural students are winning accolades at the state, national and international level. Moreover discipline, which is a non-negotiable factor of a students’ life on our campus inculcates the value of time management and punctuality; ensure your attendance in the classes. Endeavor to be better human being while foraying in the competitive life, realizing your dreams. Honesty and integrity should be your second names. And with this you would definitely turn out to be the best citizens endowed with humanistic values after getting formally instructed from this institution and would open new horizons of development and bliss for your country.

This anecdote shows that it is never too early to consider the most important questions a person can face,it is never too early to ask what small change you can bring to this world and even if you haven’t thought of it until now, it is never too late to begin. At the core of his belief system was a deep and abiding trust in the true nature of human beings who would act as ethical beings because it was the right thing to do.

Each and every one of you will one day have to ascribe a meaning  to your life. As Swami Vivekananda said, “Truth can be stated in a thousand different ways,yet each one can be true.” Your education here, in this college and outside it,during your time here and long after you graduate, will help you find that truth. The true hallmark of that education would be one “by which character is formed, strength of mind is increased, the intellect is expanded, and by which one can stand on one’s own feet.” So, seek out that education, discover that truth and remember to use it well.

I welcome you all to this great institution of higher learning and assure you ofa nurturing and caring environment that will see all of you blossom into empowered and sensitive human beings.

The ambience and the pristine surroundings of this place are conducive for learning and healthy stay. But the infrastructure is the only body part of the residential school. The soul is the relationship between the teacher and the taught, their bonding. We give equal importance to both of them. We ask students to compete with themselves for their natural growth. It is our endeavor to transform students in such a way that they are physically fit,mentally resilient, morally strong and spiritually sound. Because we believe that these are the necessary conditions for any child to have holistic growth,adopting the modern trends and techniques. Hence holistic approach is the keyto teaching and learning experience. The teachers at CSJCP aim at combining the scholastic achievements with the life skills essential for success.

With Best Wishes and Blessings for the upcoming session!
