History & Growth
Girideepam had a very humble beginning in 1975 with a dozen of tiny tots in a room attached to Bethany Ashram, Kalathipady, Kottayam. The ardent fervour of Bethany Fathers synchronized with social commitment helped the School to grow by leaps and bounds doing good to society.
In 1987 we presented the first batch of SSLC and since then an uninterrupted history of total pass with top State Ranks and grades continues. Hundreds of young citizens passed out of this Temple of Learning with a lamp in their hands and a song on their lips. In 2002 this School was upgraded to a Higher Secondary School. The credibility and social commitment of this Institution called for another School with CBSE syllabus. Girideepam Bethany Central School established in 1997 (Affiliation No: 930296) is an offshoot of Girideepam High School. This School in the same campus has grown into a full-fledged Senior Secondary School and we have presented the first batch of AISSE (X) in 2001 and AISSCE (XII) in 2003. The commendable results in Board Examinations put this School in the list of top ranking CBSE Schools in the country.
Girideepam Institute of Advanced Learning (GIAL) established in 2005 is another stage in the progress of Girideepam. It is a college affiliated to Mahatma Gandhi University in the Self-Financing Sector offering specially designed courses at the Degree Level and Post Graduate level. The college makes every student competent and confident to live up to the challenges of the globalized world.
