FAQ

Every top-industrialist's family, successful lawyers, technocrats and professionals send their children to the best of residential schools. There are many who have never been to colleges but are running millions worth business with top professionals working for them. The secret is their tremendous self-confidence, decision making ability and leadership qualities. A child's overall development, education, personality development, leadership qualities and rich values and culture will be the deciding factor for real success in life. Every child is bestowed with these latent potentialities which remain suppressed due to over-protection of parental care. Every decision is taken by the parent for the child. We love our children too much and cannot afford to make any mistake by allowing children to take independent decision. This is where quality residential schools offer a good platform for developing his personality and leadership traits.

The best of day schools in the world have 'time' as their constraint and limitation. A child goes to school at 8 am and comes back at 3 pm. In this short span of time, the day school can only cater to academics and syllabi completion as it is so vast. Emphasis on personality development is neither planned nor possible.

No proper system is present at home to cater to personality development of the child. Our love for our children is far too much and for reasons known, we tend to be over-protective about them. In this process, we unknowingly cause more harm than help as the latent potentials get submerged. Children reciprocate to our love but value the words of teachers more than the parents. The most important period of development of the child is between the age of 8 to 18 years and this vital period after school time till bedtime has been let slightly loose and this is certainly not the correct for the child who is the most priceless asset with us. Residential Schools adopt a "whole-life" approach to education wherein the curriculum is not only person-centered but community oriented also. The curriculum of a residential school is designed to cater to the individual needs and interests of the children keeping in mind their future welfare. Best qualities of family life are replicated in the lifestyle of the boarders and the quest for personal fulfillment is balanced by a commitment of shared Endeavour, it adds dimensions of self-confidence, tolerance and maturity while imparting knowledge. Residential schools strengthen the will power of the students and help them to build a strong character. It provides them with the opportunity to understand the meaning and virtue of discipline.

Eminent psychologists like Edward Thorndike and Sigmund Frued opine that a child needs immense parental care till the age of eight as emotional stability is nurtured in the child during this stage. The qualities and emotional balance can be instilled by the parents during this age only. The right age for children to join residential schools is 10years, wherein the child has developed the sense of responsibility and self-confidence and has the ability to handle testing situations. Residential School helps a child to develop into independent mature adults enabling them to adjust to all types of situations and environment later in life.

One of the best platforms for a child's development is to let him loose in the market of life. But, being young and innocent, he may fall prey to wrong ways. This is where a residential school which is a home away from home and the school acts as a family unit where teachers become foster parents and the child is always under controlled conditions. The 24-hour watch by teachers and house parents creates parental care. Constant monitoring and guiding towards activity-based life helps the child to realize his/her potential and caliber. Residential school aims at nurturing an environment in which children can develop self-esteem, self-confidence and wholesome personality while pursuing their academics.

Children understand the value of parental love only when they are away from them. Children at home take parents for granted as parents tend to overprotect their children and tend to pamper them. Parents at times tend to lose control in bringing about the desired controlling authority as their obligations outside the home due to their commitments being more demanding. In a hostel, the child realizes the true value of his parents thus bonding gets more strengthened.

The reason for a child being sent to a hostel is to instill in him discipline and social adaptability. Residential schools are best equipped to impart this mode of discipline as systems are in place 24 hours with qualified mentors/teachers. The 24X7 supervision by various faculties helps in channelizing the abundant energy in the child in positive developmental activities. The system instills leadership and managerial qualities boosting their self-confidence and independence tremendously.
