Education is not mere accumulation of facts; it is preparation of life itself. Education is knowledge imbued with wisdom and ethics. It develops the personality of the students, moulds their character and develops mental skills to help them cope with problems and challenges of the complex world of today. One of the most significant character traits that need to be instilled in our youth during their education is a finely ingrained attitude of service- before-self. The aim is to make them successful not only in life, but also conscious of their duties and responsibilities towards their fellow citizens. It is with this vision that the Apeejay Education Society was established in 1967 and twenty-nine educational institutions set up across the country over the last four decades, offering quality education from Pre-Primary to Doctoral levels.
The Apeejay Stya University established in 2010 is yet another milestone in our unending journey in pursuit of excellence – the culmination of a long-standing dream to establish a seat of global learning that reflects the best practices of the leading universities of the world. One that would set the standard for quality and innovation in higher education, in the teaching-learning of technology, liberal arts and research in the country, and would give to the world men and women who would be able to transverse their educational destinies in a supportive and nurturing environ that cherishes the independence of thought, creativity, academic autonomy, risk-taking, diversity and multiculturalism.
The Apeejay institutions exemplify the fact that sky is not the limit in the pursuit of excellence. The aim of our schools is to promote a system of integral education in a congenial child-friendly environment that emphasises the unity of all knowledge, synthesises humanity and sciences and recognises the fact that each child is unique. We believe that education should enable the students to soar high - morally, socially and spiritually. We believe that our students need to learn that the secret of success and contentment lies in discovering one's own strengths as well as limitations. There is, therefore, every reason to place a renewed emphasis on the humanistic dimensions of education, enabling each person to grasp and appreciate the individuality of others, and to discover one's own self through an inner journey whose milestones are knowledge, introspection and humility. This should guide educational thinking in conjunction with other holistic objectives. At Apeejay schools, priority is also given to the teaching of critical thinking skills such as reasoning and problem solving, to help our students develop the ability to reach sound conclusions based on observation and information. Our school curricula also allows our teachers the flexibility to adopt innovative methods to stimulate interest and attention among the students and develop in them an appreciation for the values of the past, the excitement of the present and the challenges of the future.
You would find a wealth of learning opportunities at Apeejay schools, Apeejay institutions of higher learning and Apeejay Stya University that would serve as an essential stepping stone to a fulfilling life and career.
