Methodology Of Teaching

Carpe Diem means "Seize the Day" and that's what our students, teachers and families do every day, making the most of each day's learning opportunities. Our students are well educated with knowledge and the skills necessary for long-term life success. We empower students, build their character and put education to productive, moral use in their lives and communities. Finally, we equip students for life, by providing attention to health and wellness, skills necessary to fully engage in community life. We believe in producing global citizens who can stand with their head held high.

Pre-Nursery, Nursery & Kindergarten:

Curriculum based on perceptual development and Executive Funcational skills

These are the mental processes that enable a child to plan, focus, remember instructions, and juggle multiple tasks successfully. Just as an air traffic control system at a busy airport safely manages the arrivals and departures of many aircrafts on multiple runways, the brain needs this skill set to filter distractions, prioritize tasks, set and achieve goals, and controls impulses.

Under these academies, we work on Howard Gardner’s Frames of Mind and have made TEN SPECIAL SKILLED ACADEMIES, called INTELLIGENCES and FOUR CLUBS - AN EXTRA MILE, giving a complete multiple intelligence programme. They learn in an innovative environment featuring a relationship-driven atmosphere to help them seize the day and make the most of each day’s educational opportunities.By operating on a mastery based system, we focus on what a student knows and understands instead of placing a child in a classroom based on age.Our students are assessed to identify their current instructional levels and then an INDIVIDUAL LEARNING PLAN is created to place each scholar in courses to accelerate learning to maximize his full potential.

In the classroom, our teachers utilize PROJECT-BASED LEARNING —allowing students to investigate and solve complex real world issues, challenges and problems. Through this dynamic educational style, students learn while focusing on their personal interests by working hands on with community organizations and projects to gain deeper knowledge. Research proves project-based learning increases the understanding of subjects, improves communication skills, enhances leadership proficiencies and heightens global readiness.


JOURNEY from Primary School to High School.

We have more analytical and scrupulous curriculum in these wings where traditional and new way of learning things are blended in the CARPE DIEM curriculum . Here the children are encouraged to do more independent work and formal education starts from Grade 1. Knowledge alone today cannot bring any child success. Therefore, along with the formal education and extra curricular activities we prepare our students as:

Life Makers- READDEI FOR WORLD
Lifemakers, as the name suggests, aims to transform the lives of children. We prepare them for the real world, to value relationships in life. They become aware of their emotions, their responsibilities, their role as a human being, their aspirations and are evolving as well-balanced individuals.

Curri Makers - COOKING THE PERFECT CURRICULUM

Currimakers, a team of veterans from the education sector, creates a curriculum keeping in mind the development and growth milestones of children. The methodology is experiential; children get hands-on experience related to various concepts.

The language class targets not just to teach correct grammar and sentence structure, but also aims to unleash the creativity in children. The idea is to open their minds first and then help them build on it. With this kind of freedom and encouragement from their teachers, students who couldn't think beyond two lines today express their thoughts in four pages!

"SPORT IS FRIENDSHIP. SPORT IS HEALTH.
SPORT IS EDUCATION. SPORT IS LIFE. SPORT BRINGS THE WORLD TOGETHER."

Physical Education & Sports - An integral part of our curriculum

A dynamic Interscholastic Athletic Program is vital for the educational and social development of students. The Carpe Diem athletic program provides an environment where students develop sports skills, physical fitness, teamwork, sportsmanship and respect for others that will prepare them for success in their adult life. As team members, students are encouraged to face challenges, strive for excellence and become leaders.

Every effort is made to support the athletic program with the best facilities, uniforms, equipment and with the most qualified coaching staff available. Coaches provide a sound, positive philosophy taught in a safe and healthy environment. The children are coached by our experienced and well qualified sports faculty. A structured sports timetable strikes the right balance between sports and academics. Evening Sports Academies are also run to help children excel in a particular sport of their choice. Inter- House matches are slated to be organized regularly to increase the confidence of the players.

These lay the foundation for the development of an all round personality, which is an invaluable asset in today's world. Games and Sports teach us tolerance, team spirit, sportsmanship and patience. To achieve this aim, sports are made an integral part of the curriculum. Carpe Diem has sufficient number of play fields for all major of games.
