St Monica Gilrs’ Comprehensive College Enugu is a brainchild of the Catholic Diocese Enugu, who in 1995 established the school with the sole purpose of recapturing in an academic environment, the waning dignity of womanhood. The staggering rise in moral depravity and its negative impacts, evident in some reckless living among most women necessitated a place of formation solely for young girls. The bid is to catch them young.
The school was also founded in the spirit of the saintly practice of Bishop C.V.C Onaga, These form the background to the emergence of the school with mission and vision as: Integrated Moral, academic, cultural and child-centered formation.
St Monica is not open to day students. It is a 100% boarding school, exclusively for girls who are ready for the rigors of academic and moral formations. The school has a very good and conducive environment for serious academic business. It has a big and modern two-story hostel complex, well-furnished and well ventilated. Each of the eight big hostel rooms has a resident teacher’s apartment.
A resident teacher’s presence in each of the hostel rooms helps to maintain discipline, gives students confidence, checks and enables easy arrest of possible emergencies. The school has two efficiently working water bore holes that supply water to the school. A 25KVA generating set is always on standby to meet the power exigencies. Our students have three square meals in a well-furnished and spaced dining hall, where all table etiquettes are taught and learnt.
St Monica Gilrs’ Comprehensive College Enugu has a rectory, with a resident priest who is the manager of the school. His presence in the school assures the daily Eucharistic celebration and other sacraments for the students. The school right from its inception has always enjoyed the devoted services of seasoned teachers and principals. St Monica Gilrs’ Comprehensive College Enugu is a home away from home for good and scholarly inclined girls. It is a moral, cultural and academic haven for girls with great and noble dreams. It is a citadel of thorough learning, and passionately resistant to mediocrity.
