Education is not a mere accumulation of facts; it is preparation for life itself. Education is knowledge imbued with wisdom and ethics. It develops the personality of the students, moulds their character, and develops mental skills to help them cope with the problems and challenges of the complex world of today. One of the most significant character traits that need to be instilled in our youth during their education is a finely ingrained attitude of service-before-self. The aim is to make them successful not only in life but also conscious of their duties and responsibilities towards their fellow citizens. It is with this vision that Apeejay Education was established in 1967 and twenty-four educational institutions set up across the country over the last five decades, offering quality education from Pre-Primary to Doctoral levels.
The aim of our schools is to promote a system of integral education in a congenial child-friendly environment that emphasises the unity of all knowledge, synthesises humanity and sciences, and recognises the fact that each child is unique. We believe that education should enable the students to soar high – morally, socially, and spiritually. We believe that our students need to learn that the secret of success and contentment lies in discovering one’s own strengths as well as limitations. There is, therefore, every reason to place a renewed emphasis on the humanistic dimensions of education, enabling each person to grasp and appreciate the individuality of others and to discover one’s own self through an inner journey whose milestones are knowledge, introspection, and humility.
This should guide educational thinking in conjunction with other holistic objectives. At Apeejay schools, priority is also given to the teaching of critical thinking skills such as reasoning and problem solving, to help our students develop the ability to reach sound conclusions based on observation and information. Our school curricula also allow our teachers the flexibility to adopt innovative methods to stimulate interest and attention among the students and develop in them an appreciation for the values of the past, the excitement of the present, and the challenges of the future.
