Dr. Pillai Global Academy -Gorai offers the Cambridge Programs and the IB Program.
Under the Cambridge program, we offer the CIPP, the CheckPoint, the IGCSE and the ‘AS’ & ‘A’ Levels. Under the IB, we offer the Diploma Program.
To translate this into a working reality, the school offers a range of learning options. At the pre-primary and primary stage, the accent will be on self- expression, development of reasoning faculties, social etiquette, personality development, and role playing to enhance confidence levels. At the secondary level, the student can choose subjects for the IGCSE programme, after close-knit consultation with parents, teachers, and counselors, and with a view to develop the skills best suited to his potential. At the higher secondary level, the student has a choice of two boards: the A Levels and the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme. Either way, the teaching standards are the finest you can expect, delivered by an internationally-trained faculty and designed to qualify your child for discerning institutions overseas.
“It's a holistic system that we are putting in place,” says Dr. Pillai. “One that denies nothing to the child in its quest to mature into a decisive individual and which inspires a sense of pride in an institution he must belong to for the next ten years.” Therefore, ideally positioned within an impressive eco-friendly campus, the Global Academy will provide every single learning amenity you would find in an international school from interactive classrooms to plush play-grounds, from bounteously-stocked libraries to a capacious auditorium and an indoor swimming pool, from a cafeteria that maintains the highest health safeguards to air-conditioned classrooms with child-friendly furniture. There are going to be special interest groups and discussion forums and a range of cultural and sporting activities that will bring out the competitive best in your child.
