    Academic Programme / Scheme of Studies

    Through comprehensive and balanced curricula, coupled with challenging academic exercises, the school's focus is to develop individual talents of the students and teach them to relate the experiences of the classroom to the realities of the world outside. With intellectual vigour and high academic standards, the students are trained to become critical and compassionate thinkers, informed participants in the local and world affairs, respecting the variety of cultures and attitudes which add richness to life.

    The curriculum is planned in such a way that there is a balance between the search for understanding, the acquisition of essential knowledge & skills, the development of positive attitude and the opportunities for positive action

    Nursery, Prep. Junior, Prep. Senior

    During the early years of development, schedules and programmes are planned so as to create learners out of young children. Effective instructional materials provide equipments that help to develop their motor and mental skills. Lessons are made interesting, meaningful and enjoyable and finally develop in the child a love for learning. Challenges that will suitably stimulate his/her abilities are thrown open to him/her to grow physically and develop mentally.

    Academic Programme / Scheme of Studies

    Curriculum emphasizes on school readiness programmes and promotes healthy habits among children. Here basic skills in 4R's (Reading, Writing, Arithmetic and Discovery) with emphasis on oral skills are nurtured. Areas of study in these classes are languages (English and Hindi), Mathematics, Environmental Studies and Computer literacy. We encourage children to be more participative. The content is drawn from immediate environment and strategies are adopted to enhance their skills of observation, collection, classification, experimentation, estimation, prediction and drawing inferences. Evaluation, at this stage, is both formal and informal. It takes place in a stress-free and learner friendly environment on continuous basis ensuring comprehensiveness and transparency

    Classes V, VI, VII,VIII

    In these classes, emphasis is on skills of learning. The approach is of integration of Science and Technology, bringing Mathematics closer to life and thematic teaching of Social Sciences. In languages, emphasis is on listening, speaking, reading, writing and thinking in balanced manner i.e. to develop communication skills with grammatical accuracy and appropriateness of style. Students are imparted enough computer expertise to deal with the technology aided learning environment of today. Music, Art Education, Health and Physical education are treated as co-scholastic areas to develop aesthetics and finer qualities of the student. The evaluation is in the form of continuous internal testing and terminal examinations and the student's achievement is graded accordingly

    Classes IX and X

    Besides developing basic concepts in each area, the C.B.S.E. curriculum of these classes is so planned that the learner acquires skills to apply theoretical knowledge in their day-to-day life and prepares him to be a life long learner. Projects and activities are an integral part of this curriculum. Learning areas include: two Languages - English (Course A) and Hindi (Course A / B), Mathematics, Science, Social Science, Work Experience, Art Education, Physical and Health Education. Teaching is done through lectures, projects, presentations, group discussions, workshops and seminars.


    Testing and Examinations are regular and rigorous and are in accordance with CBSE pattern.

    Classes XI and XII

    In today's world of globalization, education is marked by competitiveness and challenges. Hence the CBSE curriculum designed for these classes is comparable to International standards. Since the interests and aptitudes of students largely stabilize by this time; they are provided with the opportunities to study the subjects of their choice, keeping in view their inclinations and preferences. The learning areas are (a) One language: English (Functional) and (b) four electives out of the following: Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Biology, Economics, Business Studies, Accountancy, Computer Science / Informatics Practices, History, Geography, Psychology, Music, (provided minimum 10 students opt for the subject). Enough emphasis is given to work experience, physical and health education and general studies of social issues of national and international interest.

    Classes IX and X

    Note: Coaching and guidance is made available to students who wish to attempt the National Entrance Tests (IIT, CPMT etc.)

    Curricular renewal is an on going process at Navrachana, as it has to be responsive to the continuous changing needs and aspirations of the society.
