What is unique about the Agastya method?

Agastya encourages innovation and sparking creativity in children.

Programs: Through innovative core programs Agastya ignites that initial spark of curiosity in a child. This occurs in our labs, where teachers trained in our hands-on method excite students about science, art, and mathematics. While certain programs support the teachers, and others assist remedial students and dropouts, all are surrounded by the ecology classroom on our Kuppam campus. READ MORE.

 

Projects: Ideas abound in a nurturing environment. Agastya encourages innovation, whether it solves a theoretical problem or a practical one. Better, more economical methods for teaching children, training teachers, and getting lessons into the schools are always at the forefront of our problem solving.

 

Accomplishments: Since its inception, Agastya has been recognized and awarded for many successes. Even greater testaments to what we do, however, are the growing numbers of children who continue their education and the many awards conferred upon them. They are living proof of the Agastya method employed by our teachers. READ MORE.

 

Feedback: Over the years, Agastya’s teachers have gone into communities and touched the lives of many children and their families, as well as those of government schoolteachers and the villages and neighborhoods they serve. Visitors have come to our campus from all over the world. What people have to say about Agastya is encouraging and humbling.
