Deepanam School for children of 6 to 14 years of age

About Deepanam School

Located in a lush green and beautiful campus in Auroville, Deepanam is a unique school for children between the ages of 7 to 14 years. Deepanam is committed to providing an experience that aligns with the principles of integral education given by Sri Aurobindo and the Mother. The school operates under the guidance of SAIIER (Sri Aurobindo International Institute for Educational Research).

Deepanam is a movement towards an unending education. Our aspiration is to cultivate a nourishing environment that helps children become lifelong learners by

 fostering in them a love for learning 

 and helping them develop their unique skills

We believe that self-learning is the fundamental requirement towards unending education and the ‘HOW’ lies in the alignment of HHH, i.e. Head (Academics), Hands (Life skills) and Heart (Arts and Character building). The HHH learning approach is an expression of the overall integral education paradigm of engaging all parts of the being - physical, vital, mental, psychic and spiritual. The core principle of alignment and integration guides our 8-year learning program and continues to help children beyond their years at Deepanam

Our eight-year learning program is divided into four mixed age groups. The mixed age groups provide abundant opportunities for exploration and peer-learning

Light Group (7 and 8 year old)

Peace Group (9 and 10 year olds)

Grace Group (11 and 12 year olds)

Faith & Hope Group (13 and 14 year olds)

Our integral curriculum facilitates learning through engagement in activities, events, workshops and presentations and helps us impart important skills to students. Some of the life skills that our program fosters are problem solving, collaboration, adaptability, communication, concentration, self-awareness and connecting with compassion. At Deepanam we are constantly exploring initiatives that support our aspiration. 

“The first principle of true teaching is that nothing can be taught. The teacher is not an instructor or taskmaster, he is a helper and guide” – Sri Aurobindo
