The Saksham Curriculum 

Saksham’s Integrated Curriculum is based on a Blended Science of Character that includes 21st century Evidence-Based Science of Character & Time-tested Cultural Sciences of Character.

Our program uses ancient wisdom and social practices along with new age techniques and skills to provide a cutting-edge experience to all our stakeholders.

The Saksham program for Pre-Schools and Schools, for young learners from 4-17 years of age is designed such that the learners are empowered with both values and life skills to help build a stronger character for their future.

While values focus on cultivating right behaviour for good citizenship and ethics within a society, life skills help young adults reach their full personal potential and prepare them for the challenges of everyday life.

With values-based education, we focus on the development of the right attitudes, values, and emotions of the young learners. Through life skills-based education, we focus on promoting and enhancing personal life skills such as self-awareness, self-esteem, critical thinking, problem solving, decision making and interpersonal skills.
