Message from the Principal

The Indian Academy's staff, students and families are increasingly leaving old paradigms behind in favour of what recent advances in cognitive science tell us about enduring learning.

Aspects of our programme include experiential learning, independent and group research, real-world problem solving, sustainability and global perspectives.  These approaches nurture personal and academic wellbeing of all learners.  Distributing leadership among all stakeholders is developing, student agency in their learning and professional growth among staff.

The great Albert Einstein quoted, "Try not to become a person of success; be a person of value."

We encourage students to follow their passions which will impact society and humanity in a meaningful and sustainable way.
