There are fifteen major schools in Kalimpong, the most notable among them being St Joseph's Convent—a highly renowned school for girls with the motto "Fidelis Et Verax" (Fidelity and truth), Dr. Graham's Homes and St. Augustine's School. The Scottish Universities Mission Institution was the first school that was opened in 1886. Schools offer education up to class 10, following which students may choose to join a Junior College or carry on with an additional two years of schooling. The Kalimpong College and the Cluny Women's College are the main colleges in the town. Both of them are affiliated to the North Bengal University. Most students however, choose to further their studies in Siliguri and Calcutta.
