Learn­ers are en­cour­aged to en­gage deeply with a wide va­ri­ety of sub­jects, us­ing ex­cel­lent resources which is taught by highly trained and ex­pe­ri­enced fac­ulty.

The stim­u­lat­ing cur­ricu­lum at DPGA in New Pan­vel and Bori­vali, be­gins from the foundation of core sub­jects and ends with prac­ti­cal, ca­reer-ori­ented and cross-cur­ric­u­lar per­spec­tives.

The Cam­bridge cur­ricu­lum de­vel­ops and hones cre­ative think­ing and prob­lem solv­ing skills, ra­tio­nal en­quiry and pos­i­tive at­ti­tude. It is the per­fect spring­board to ad­vanced study, mak­ing stu­dents el­i­gi­ble for uni­ver­si­ties in In­dia and abroad.

DPGA is com­mit­ted to a holis­tic ed­u­ca­tion based on new gen­er­a­tion aca­demics that cre­ates not just pow­er­ful global ca­reer op­tions, but also em­pow­ers stu­dents to be­come key con­trib­u­tors to the com­mu­nity and en­vi­ron­ment in which they live. DPGA strives to achieve na­tion build­ing through char­ac­ter build­ing and men­tor­ing.

The Cam­bridge IGCSE and A Level Cer­tifi­cates and IBDP are recog­nised by lead­ing uni­ver­si­ties and em­ploy­ers around the world as ev­i­dence of aca­demic abil­ity.

Self-Learn­ing

Ed­u­ca­tion is im­parted at Dr. Pil­lai Global Academy through hands-on learn­ing. In fact, learn­ing is not ex­ter­nally im­posed; rather self-learn­ing is pro­moted through the use of mul­ti­me­dia in­struc­tions, flex­i­ble seat­ing ar­range­ments, ded­i­cated sub­ject rooms, and ca­reer-ori­ented sub­ject se­lec­tion op­tions from Grade 9 on­wards.

Stu­dents have op­por­tu­ni­ties to or­gan­ise events such as ed­u­ca­tional trips within In­dia and abroad, morn­ing as­sem­blies and cel­e­bra­tions, which help them de­velop or­gan­i­sa­tional skills and lead­er­ship qual­i­ties from a very young age.

Lo­gis­tics

DPGA is known for its in­ter­na­tion­ally trained fac­ulty, world class in­fras­truc­ture, state-of-the art lab­o­ra­to­ries, well stocked li­braries, com­puter cen­tre with in­ter­net con­nec­tiv­ity for all, cafe­te­ria, in-house swim­ming pool and fa­cil­i­ties for a va­ri­ety of in­door and out­door sports, in­clud­ing the astroturf sports field.

Stu­dents are given the free­dom to think in­de­pen­dently and be aware of their own strengths and weak­nesses, which teaches them to bal­ance aca­demic, cur­ric­u­lar and ex­tracur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties har­mo­niously.
