Welcome to Isha Home School
The Isha Home School (Home School) was founded in 2005 by Sadhguru, a mystic, visionary, and a global leader. Sadhguru sees education as a vital component for individual and global transformation.
The founder's educational approach is concretized and translated into the day-to-day working of the Home School.
Set in tranquil surroundings near Coimbatore, Tamil Nadu, the residential Home School is located at the foothills of the Velliangiri Mountains.
The school is 'home' for students and faculty from different parts of the world. Comprised of the Junior, Middle, and Senior School, the Home School has students aged 6 to 16 years. Students learn in a multi-age environment, which allows them to go beyond the predefined, age-specific syllabi and enhances their learning capabilities. While students progress at their own pace, the Home School prepares students to appear for the board examinations at an appropriate age. Qualitative progress of students is done regularly, and assessments are discussed with students and shared with parents.
Some key characteristics of the educational system at the Home School are:
Holistic and Comprehensive: Emphasis is on integrating all aspects of life into the educational process. In addition to conventional academic requirements, emphasis is placed on exploring and pursuing various co-curricular activities and areas of interest.
Home-like Environment: The best aspects of 'home' and 'school' blend to provide the most conducive and nourishing space for learning where young minds are constantly stimulated and challenged to grow and evolve. Emulating a home-like sibling environment, the school ensures that students of a vertical age group live together in ‘houses’. Each household is headed by house-parents, who are also the students’ teachers. Subject specialists visit the home for specialized instruction.
Contemporary and Indian: Keeping in mind that education must be relevant and in tune with the increasingly global society in which we live, the Home School inculcates in children a strong foundation of human and life values that transcends all boundaries. Faculty and students from around the world give it a global and international character. Still, the Home School is essentially Indian; its essence springs from the rich cultural heritage of India.
