Who is it for?
Our focus is children from less privileged backgrounds. However our high quality innovative method of learning is for children from all backgrounds.
What's our philosophy?
We see education as a preparation for life. As such, our children receive a well-rounded education that comprises academics, life skills, creativity, proper food and exercise, and basic health care, all in a clean, friendly and happy environment.
What's the goal?
To help students successfully complete the SSLC tenth grade exam, thus paving the way for them to enter some of the best colleges and universities.
How are we different?
We understand most of our students are first-generation learners. So we place an emphasis on a balanced education that nurtures their grades as well as other interests. The idea is to help them discover their strengths, so they can explore options hitherto unknown to them – for themselves, their families, and the community.
What's the curriculum like?
The academic foundation is received through science, mathematics and social studies. Language studies build a foundation in English, Kannada, and Hindi. Creativity is nurtured through fine arts, theatre, music, dance, and craft. Life skills are imparted through games and value education. In addition, high school children are taught vocational skills in carpentry, jewelry making, vegetable carving, video making and many more. We also foster clubs around science, math, humanitarian concerns, organic farming, literature, and history to show children how classroom learning impacts everyday life.
Where are we headed?
In the next five years we aim to make quality education affordable to two thousand students. We wish to groom more and more children from economically backward families. We also want to foster a culture of strong women; who are aware, independent, confident and creative so they can positively impact their families, our communities and the globalized world.
