Avasara Academy currently enrolls 275 students in standards 6-11 and will eventually have an enrollment of 500 students in standards 6-12.

Students are selected to attend the Academy based on merit alone. They engage in our specialized curriculum that combines the academic excellence of the Cambridge curriculum with a focus on leadership, entrepreneurship, and Indian studies.

Avasara Academy, therefore, is not just a school but a life-long network that will cultivate innovative, entrepreneurial leaders.
