Apeejay School International (ASI) is an IB continuum school in the offing. Being the latest addition to Apeejay Education, it shares the mission and vision of Dr Stya Paul - eminent industrialist, educationist and inspiration behind all Apeejay Education institutions.

ASI believes in nurturing young minds that are innovative, knowledgeable and equipped with the skills to excel in the fast evolving dynamic world of tomorrow. It also aims to instill in its students an understanding of human values and traditional virtues that sets them apart as exemplary leaders and global citizens.

Apeejay School International offers world-renowned International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years, Middle Years and Diploma programmes based on inquiry, action, and reflection. A bespoke knowledge content mapped to the best curricula across the world has been designed to keep students ahead of their age groups.

The advent of technology and communication has heralded a paradigm shift in the educational landscape. Today, learning is not confined to the classrooms, teachers are available everywhere and networks are the new classrooms. Focus of education is shifting from mere delivery of content to acquiring skills necessary to thrive in the future. This means that a progressive, holistic education with international dimension is more important than ever. We intend to achieve this by encouraging intellectual curiosity, fostering creativity, innovation and by inspiring students to pursue excellence in ways that define a futuristic education. The IB teachers of Apeejay School International are well-equipped to provide such education and care.

Learning at ASI is informed by research and empowered by technology for more focused and personalised education. Although the modes of education and acquiring knowledge have seen a drastic change over the period of time, ASI has remained undeterred in its approach to impart quality education to all owing to its advanced infrastructure and use of modern technology.
