“In the process of acquiring some knowledge, you begin to know yourself better than you do.”
Education is a life-long learning process. Learning happens all the time; at school, at home and outside the designated place too. The mission of educating young minds is to empower them to create a learning environment for themselves in any given scenario.
Shaping young, impressionable minds is one of life’s biggest challenges. At Shraddha, We are passionate about creating a ‘learning’ institution that is dynamic and constantly seeking excellence to meet the needs of the present as well as the future, while learning from the ethical and moral value systems. SCA is committed to the complete development of a student; this includes Academic Knowledge, Social Skills, Intellectual Curiosity, Physical Endurance and special emphasis on Self-discovery. We promote tolerance and mutual respect. It is our commitment to mould children to be open to thinking globally and be prepared for life. We believe that self-discipline is more sustainable than imposed discipline and hence our school gives the students ‘Happy Learning Environment.’
SCA follows a process-oriented way of teaching wherein the teachers provide children opportunities to explore a wide variety of materials. The child’s enjoyment and learning through these explorations are given more importance than the final product or outcome.
Parental involvement in a child’s education process is both a gift to your child and a gift to the school. This partnership is strongly encouraged and highly valued at SCA.
We value igniting the spark of creativity and curiosity in our students.
“What is important for us at Shraddha is not where a child starts from, but not limiting where a child can finish”
We at Shraddha children’s academy with the vision “comprehensive educational experience” aspire to provide a quality education that grooms every student to become a critical thinker and a confident learner. We empower our students to channel their skills and knowledge as a result of which our students have been appreciated for their literary, artistic and athletic ability exhibited at various inter-school competitions.
Our team of skilled teachers “go that extra mile” in providing assistance wherever needed to ensure that the students succeed in all their endeavors.
Every student’s achievement is inevitably a result of a team effort involving the learner, the school and the parents. We are thankful to the supportive parent community who believes in the ethos of the school.
I am confident that in times to come we will continue this journey with elevated enthusiasm and persistently provide a platform of holistic learning to the young generation.

“Education which does not mould character is absolutely useless” –Mahatma Gandhi
At Shraddha, the roots of education emphasize on ethics, along with academics. Children are taught to pursue excellence with character.
Two pairs of hands mold the entire world, the hands of a teacher and the hands of a parent. Deep down, I believe that if there is any tool that can transform the world, it is education. Education enlightens, empowers and enables every person to walk on the road to success.
The joy of learning enables every child to remember not only what is taught, but also cherish the learning experience. I am strongly convinced that children should be taught to build on their strengths and never let what they cannot do prevent them from doing what they can do. Taking success and failure in their stride, learning from their mistakes and bouncing back every time they fall is what makes learning an experience.
Shraddha Children’s Academy plays an essential role in identifying and fostering every child’s intrinsic potential. Our pedagogy is a blend of creative thinking and digital skills that is in greater need in the global forum.
We at Shraddha believe in giving our students strong values along with a set of wings which may carry them far and wide.
Our vision is to build a school, which takes a holistic approach to learning and involves students in building life skills apart from the primary goal of imparting education.
Our vision is to make every child become a good and responsible citizen of India and also educate and empower them with the basic skills necessary to face the hidden challenges outside with self-confidence and self-motivation.
The management of Siddharth Educational and Charitable Trust have long believed that each child is unique and has its own way of understanding and assimilating information. We believe that each child has to be taught at its own pace and whilst we may have a broad curriculum that covers a wide range of subjects, each child has to be taught to its strengths.
We aim to provide a comprehensive educational experience to children from Nursery to High School with a lot of importance in developing life skills that are critical for a child to be competitive. Our educational programme inspires in the students, the love for learning, ability to perceive and distinguish between right and wrong and to build on their inherent strengths and to overcome their weaknesses.
