Message from Director Of Academies

All great ideas begin with a commitment to the future. ‘Vision gives you the impulse to make the picture on your own.’ Aim of holistic education is to inculcate this vision into a student. For one who has just stepped into this world and begun to toddle the journey of life, falling, getting up, and again faltering every moment is a startling experience of awe, wonder and endless curiosity. This is, perhaps, the most crucial phase of life where the marks we leave, every small scratch and impression play a decisive role in molding one’s personality. The kind of education we impart to a child at Akal Academy lays the foundation of life and shapes its destiny. That explains all our concerns and anxieties of education.

Akal Academy is a chain of 129 co-educational English medium low cost public schools following CBSE curriculum and affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) in the rural areas of Punjab, Haryana, Rajasthan, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh.

It is with a strong commitment to the quest for excellence in the field of education, that Akal Academy was established and is making rapid progress in enhancing its potential and changing its outlook towards providing better resources required to impart the best all round quality education laced with morality.

Core Values

High Achievement for All

Our schools are dedicated to teaching students to be involved, active learners who work hard, think critically and creatively, and communicate effectively. We emphasize high expectations for all students, and support them to reach their full potential in all aspects of achievement, especially in academics, arts, sports, social skills and civic participation, all of which prepare students for success in their lives after high school.

Excellence in Teaching

Passionate, knowledgeable, skillful teachers are the core strength of our school system. We expect our faculty and staff to provide a dynamic and rewarding learning experience for students. Excellent teaching begins with strong relationships between faculty and students and is nurtured by collaboration among colleagues. We are committed to supporting a professional community that creates and sustains an atmosphere of intellectual excitement, innovative instruction and personal growth.

Collaboration

Through collaboration we find new sources of learning and strength. The Akal Academy Baru Sahib actively promote collaborative relationships. We seek out partnerships with community organizations that add value to our school system. We urge and support collaboration and exchange within and across our school community.

Respect for Human Differences

We are committed to acknowledging and celebrating the diversity within our community while affirming the importance of our common humanity. By promoting a safe environment for questioning and challenge, we foster the growth and value that comes from different perspectives, cultures and experiences. Our commitment is to create an atmosphere of safety in which to acknowledge and express difference while advancing true acceptance and respect for all.

Educational Equity

The Akal Academy Baru Sahib are committed to identifying and eliminating barriers to educational achievement in our schools. To this end, we create policies and practices that are fair and just and provide educational opportunities to ensure that every student, regardless of race, color, religion, gender, marital status, age, national origin, or economic status, meets our standards for achievement, participation and growth.

Our Culture

Akal Academy enshrines a culture traditionally rich, socially healthy and environmentally aware. While the lifestyle of students is inspired by the ideal Sikh way of life, all efforts are made to nurture the talents of blooming students by providing them with the state-of-the-art infrastructure and dedicated and skilled faculty. Adequate ambience is created to ingrain moral values in the students and help them evolve critical and original thinking. Special effort is made to respect and reward honest hard work wherever and in whatever capacity because at Akal Academy, it is believed that appreciation is a key ingredient to mould the impressionable minds of children.

Students from all over India and 16 countries across the globe with over a hundred students from US alone, study at Akal Academy, Baru Sahib. Despite such diversity on face, all students, irrespective of their background, have access to same facilities and opportunities. This diversity helps Indian students to interact with students from other countries and develop an international perspective of all the subjects and thoughts. The exchange of culture and human values ensures this unique feature of the school. Children learn to be tolerant towards others’ beliefs and try to know more about their friends’ backgrounds, hence enriching their knowledge.

Akal Academy is proud to have students from a myriad of ethnic, social and national background. Upholding Guru Nanak’s message of universal brotherhood, no distinction is made on these basis in any opportunity offered by the Akal Academy. Hence, Akal Academy is an equal-opportunity institution where all decisions are taken on the basis of merit.
