The informal school on the veranda of Milagres Church known as Bolkanve School at a time when there were no organized school in this area became a formal institution in 1887 at the hands of Rev. Fr. Albert D’Souza. It was recognized as St. Joseph’s Primary School by the year 1892. Rev. Fr. C. P. Gonsalves S.J. with the spontaneous support and co – operation of the people succeeded in starting Milagres Secondary School in 1913, which was upgraded into a High School in the same year. But the absence of an Institution of higher education in Kallianpur deprived the economically backward families of higher education.
