Salient Program Features

The students experience a major shift in the teaching learning process when they transition from class X (content-based teacher driven learning) to Class XI (application-based self driven learning). A unique course has been designed by our experienced teaching faculty to bridge this gap and help students overcome the initial academic challenges. The programme is of 2-3 weeks duration and it provides:

  • An overview of the CBSE senior secondary programme and syllabus
  • Familiarization with new teaching learning process in Class XI-XII
  • Revision of all the basic concepts of Class X which are foundation for Class XI syllabus
  • One to one interaction with faculty members for guidance in subject selection
  • Seminars by external experts on career guidance and competitions

Akshara offers an Integrated Schooling option wherein the Competitive Exams coaching is integrated with the regular board classes teaching in the school. Classes are conducted by external competitive exams coaching experts during school hours to save the students travel time to coaching classes.

The child is at the center of the teaching-learning process and so utmost care is taken that he/ she achieves optimal level of excellence through regular hard work and motivation.
> The school counselor has a session with each student at the start of the program and she facilitates regular sessions on stress management, goal setting, self management and mind power through out the year. The students can discuss their personal issues with her in confidence. External experts guidance sessions are arranged whenever required.
> As part of our Student Mentoring program each students is mapped to a faculty member who monitors the academic progress and provides guidance to student & parent.

We believe that learning is a continuous process and so should be the assessment. We follow the CBSE guidelines for the assessment which includes annual examinations, periodic tests and internal assessments. This ensures regularity in studies and chapter wise learning feedback to the student.

The progress report of the students is directly sent to the parents. Also, a Parent App is provided to parents so that they can track school activities, circulars and their ward’s attendance. Parent teacher meetings are held after every assessment to apprise the parents about their child’s progress. Parents are encouraged to meet the counselor for guidance on how to motivate their ward and help in stress management.

The ultimate aim of Akshara Secondary program is to ensure that each pupil is able to enter a career of his/ her choice at the end of the schooling years. The process begins from grade IX as school facilitates a career guidance and counselling program to make the students have self-awareness of their competencies and aptitudes. Career counsellors and eminent people from respective industries are invited to interact with the students. During Class XI- XII, students are made aware of various study options in India and aboard for their chosen career option.
