St Francis of Assisi School, Mamit was started at the invitation of the Capuchin Fathers of Karnataka who run a primary school with the same name at Bazar Veng locality of Mamit. The agreement between the Fathers and Bethany was that they would run the Primary section and Bethany would start a high school. Accordingly, when the first batch of students from the Fathers’ school reached Class V in 2003, Sisters took charge and began the middle school section which eventually developed into a high school.

The people of Mamit, Mizoram, had donated some land to the Diocese of Aizawl to do developmental work. The land located at Ngharpetveng locality was handed over to the Capuchin Fathers who are managing the parish. According to the wish of the donor and of the diocese, a portion of this land was demarcated for Bethany for the expressed purpose of building a school.

With the help of Manos Unidas, a double-storied structure was built on the new land at Ngharpet veng in 2006 to house the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS). Meanwhile, the school had reached high school level and a need was felt to shift the high school section to Ngharpet eng. Thus from the year 2011, the high school section of St Francis of Assisi High School was shifted to its present locality while the middle section remained at the original place in Bazar veng. However, the administration continued to be one.

On March 25th 2011, the community was bifurcated and a second Bethany convent named St Theresa Convent was erected at Ngharpetveng, Mamit.

Sr Carmine Lobo was appointed its first superior. She also took charge as the third Headmistress and served till July 15, 2016. She is succeeded by Sr Mary Naulak.
