Our School Philosophy
The Dr. Pillai Global Academy is a “maximum opportunities” learning environment, designed to impart education that empowers your child to pursue a globally challenging career. The focus will be on activity – oriented teaching and beyond the classroom methods.
“Education is not a quest but a journey”: Dr. K. M. Vasudevan Pillai, Chairman and CEO, MES. This journey of life encompassing the entire world has its base in our educational institution Dr. Pillai Global Academy.
The two different poles, even though contrary not only intersect the knowledge and skills but also overlap different ways of thinking. Globalization leaves its footprints in every arena / area of the student development. Teaching and Learning are now equipped with new techniques involving interacting learning environment. These skills involve multicultural influences, inclusive societal structures and a pattern of interdependency.
A student in this new world must grapple with two core facts of life. One, where he encounters immense competition and the other he has access to infinite opportunities. Students must be equipped well to deal with the competition efficiently. Skills required for competing and critical analysis help them in choosing opportunities.
Dr. Pillai Global Academy employs a unique approach to address this need, by making a paradigm shift from the textbook to the real world and labs. While skills and facts are important; the reasoning behind the facts makes for a subject of analysis. Thus, the ‘how’ and the ‘why’ gather much weight than the ‘what’. Dr. Pillai Global Academy focuses on developing the right attitude to face the challenges, learning and applying contemporary knowledge and cultivating a spirit of enterprise. As stated in the mission, Dr. Pillai Global Academy believes in an education that concentrates on a holistic development. An education that helps students imbibe not only diversified knowledge, but also teaches them how to harness this knowledge to the new world.
The school fosters critical thinking while at the same time emphasizing creativity. A positive environment is developed to complement the students’ positive attitude. Right values and morals are instilled amongst the student at the same time as self-confidence and self-esteem. To this end the school strongly believes in going beyond academic development by conducting numerous extra and co-curricular activities as well as field trips. The Philosophy is made operational through the implementation of different curricula and boards as they help in developing and cultivating the skills necessary for the 21st century.
