In 1940 the school was shifted to the present St. Joseph’s School in the cantonment area. Br. Leo was a popular and efficient man.The first headmaster of C.K.C. was Mr. Eric D’souza. Earlier the school was recognized by Senior Cambridge but the students also had the option of appearing for Uttar Pradesh State Board. The recognition of ICSE/ISC board was obtained in 1975 by Fr. Tony Late. The first batch of ICSE(X) passed out in Dec 1976. In 1977, the acamedic year was changed from Jan-Dec to Apr-Mar and therefore, the first batch of ISC(XII) passed out in Mar 1979. Fr.
