De Nobili School, Sindri, is a Jesuit boarding and day school, first through twelfth grade and coeducational, that prepares students for the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) examination in class 10 and for the Indian School Certificate (ISC) in class 12.

Roberto de Nobili, who has eight Jesuit secondary schools in Jharkhand named after him, was an early 17th-century missionary to Southern India. St. John de Britto would follow de Nobili's example and adapt to local customs in his presentation of Christianity.[1]
