St Aloysius Institution, Mangalore which began as a small institution serving a few hundred students more than 140 years ago, has today grown into a complex educational enterprise, with various units scattered all over two sprawling campuses, where more than 16,000 students, both boys and girls pursue their studies in various disciplines. St Aloysius Institutions seek to establish a congenial environment in which those of diverse cultural backgrounds and religious beliefs can participate in the community, in a spirit of co-operation and mutual respect.
