“Do not follow where the path may lead. Go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.”
Ralph Waldo Emerson
The Indian Academy is increasingly having our staff, students and families leave old paradigms behind in favour of what recent advances in cognitive science tell us about learning that endures.
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.
Einstein stated: “try not to become a person of success; be a person of value”. We are not merely encouraging students to strive for “qualifications”, high standardized test scores or future income, but rather to follow their passions and to impact society and humanity in a meaningful and sustainable way.
