Academics

SIA sets great emphasis on the academic aspect. Good grades translate into good achievements in life. We have an extremely challenging and invigorating programme that boosts critical thinking, which leads to the development of leadership skills.

We strictly believe in the inherent intelligence of each individual, which can be developed and harnessed by creating proper environmental conditions and facitlities. Each child can thus become talented and enthusiastic by the latent talents which each of us is endowed with.

Students, who have a good scientific and liberal arts foundation, imagination and communication skills at school level, are always in great demand by good universities. A variety of interesting career opportunities are available and students with good foundation at the school level make good future leaders. Interesting and varied life experiences at school are always remembered with great nostalgia by all.

Educational Systems

The Academy offers two systems of education.
