Shikha Academy was founded on the belief that the fundamental goal of education in the 21st century is to arm students for their lives ahead with the most relevant knowledge, skills and attitudes. To expose them to diverse real world experiences to guide them towards their life missions and to understand how they can pursue both their own happiness as well as the betterment of their world.
We inspire in all students a love for learning through relevant skills, knowledge and attitudes empowering them with courage, integrity and grit to achieve success and joy for themselves, their communities and the world.
We believe that
Each person has intrinsic value and deserves respect.
Empathy and open-mindedness lead to a harmonious world.
Excellence is defined by striving to do our best at everything we do.
We are all responsible for ourselves, our actions and our future.
Hope and optimism are essential for progress and growth.
Our school runs from Grade 5 to Grade 12 and we aim to follow the International Baccalaureate Middle Years, Diploma and Career-related Program.
Our students are hand-picked from families with combined income of less than Rs. 4 lakh a year and pay nominal fees. They are our superstars.
Our pedagogy focuses on personalised, blended and real world learning with an emphasis on future careers built on passion.
