After School Learning On-Site / Online : 2021-22
After School Learning – Grades K To 8
Our after school program is driven by the guiding vision of building intellect. We take academics, add to it and teach ways to apply the knowledge. Hands on experience has a crucial role in the development of intellect. Experience provides a child with undistorted understanding of reality, enabling to discover better solutions to a problem by improving on success or learning from failures, contributing in intellectual development. We continuously review our programs and are open to embrace new ideas if it adds value to our students.
