School seeks to provide an environment in which youth from Auroville and those
dedicated to their education, may reach their own unique potential through a
balanced development of body, mind, emotion and spirit.
Inspired by Sri
Aurobindo and the Mother, the school aspires to create a platform for
self-discovery. Students are encouraged to follow a value-oriented approach to
life in which they have an opportunity to create a deeper understanding of
their responsibility to self, community
and the world.
While offering the opportunity for a variety of choices, the school seeks to balance independence and freedom on one hand, with respect and responsibility on the other. Students are supported in an interactive and open communication environment. At the same time they are encouraged to be aware of their choices and to forge their own path for their growth and progress.
Future School offers a high school equivalent education through a wide range of subjects : Languages (English, Tamil, French, German, Italian, Spanish and Russian); Mathematics; Pure Sciences (Physics, Chemistry, Biology); Social Sciences (History, Geography, Economics, Psychology); Extra Curricular Subjects (ICT, Fashion Design, Photography, Film, Arts, Theatre). Future School is recognised by Edexcel (International British Education and Examination Board) as an exam centre through which students can sit for IGSCE, GCE and IAL exams.
Where suited, we also offer the possibility of Practical Training with Auroville Units, making use of the diverse possibilities offered by Auroville at large. Through our mentoring program we assist the students in making good individual choices that help them to explore and discover, progress and grow.
