About Ekya:

Can education be less about memorising, and more about making a memory? Can a lesson be touched, tasted, smelt and seen, instead of just read? Can we mould empowered human beings, instead of just skilled students? At Ekya, we can.

Ekya is a community of learners, thinkers, doers and changemakers. Ekya stands for a sense of togetherness, collaboration and unity – Ekya is a community where everyone forges ahead with purpose. The word Ekya is derived from the Sanskrit sounds of unity and individuality. It embodies the spirit of collaboration and togetherness while allowing space for the individual to grow. The Ekya logo can be interpreted in many ways and we love seeing students derive their own meaning from it.

Drawing on the legacy of the CMR Group of Institutions and National Public Schools and the innovative, immersive methods of school systems around the world, our schools were instituted with one aim – to teach children not just what to learn, but how to learn. Here, knowing how to learn is a skill in itself, and the key to creating lifelong learners with the means to adapt and thrive in a constantly changing world.

So, welcome to Ekya, the place where we live the lesson. Every single day.

Message from the Head of School

“The education system is undergoing dramatic changes as new and novel techniques are adopted to inculcate knowledge and enhance skillsets in children – and Ekya is at the forefront of this revolution. These are changing times as the world embraces active learning as the path to meaningful knowledge and not rote learning. At Ekya, we have a strong belief that the learning process must be enjoyable and gratifying for every child. To achieve this, we use a multitude of techniques that are based on inquiry and experiential learning. Our specially designed curriculum lets children discover their “eureka” moments through these techniques.

Children have multi-faceted talents and it is essential to expose them to varied experiences so that they can discover their passions and pursue them, making them well rounded individuals. The extracurricular programs at Ekya do exactly this by offering opportunities for children to participate in various sports, explore talents in art and music or join any of our diverse clubs. At Ekya, we believe that a conducive learning environment is as important as what is being taught and learnt. The Ekya BTM Layout campus has an open architecture, pleasing colours, bright classrooms with efficient lighting and well-designed labs, library and play areas all making it a pleasurable experience for every child.

We teach our students to believe in themselves and empower them to reach their potential. An important aspect of our teaching is the instilling of moral values in every child through value based education, equipping them to differentiate right from wrong and to choose the correct path.

At Ekya, we consider it our duty to do everything we can, to realize each child’s full potential.”
