ABOUT US

Shikha Academy was founded on the belief that with opportunity, motivation and support, all students can find the pathway to their greatest potential for excellence in work and life.

As a school, we hope to create a model of high-quality learning exclusively for low-income students. With the right knowledge, skills, and values, they can be joyful, productive, and impactful leaders of their communities, the nation, and the world.

The school is funded by the Shantilal Shanghvi Foundation.

SHIKHA ACADEMY STUDENT GOALS

PHYSICAL AND MENTAL BALANCE

Our students will be physically and mentally resilient and deal with life circumstances with equanimity and a growth mindset, actively looking for opportunities to progress.

ECONOMIC PRODUCTIVITY

Our students will lift themselves, their families and their communities through economic success in jobs that capitalise their potential, or through enterprises that they create, while towards the economic development of the country.

CITIZEN LEADERSHIP

Our students will constantly seek opportunities to help their communities, city and nation with the assets that they possess, in order to take up responsibility and fix problems around them, both at smaller and larger scale.

At Shikha Academy, we focus on certain skills that are embedded into our pedagogy. Practice of these skills lead to certain behaviours, that we identify and encourage. Repeated behaviours lead to habits and values. This is the process that we use to encourage the fulfilment of our three goals above.
