Adarsha Academy

Purpose

The Adarsha Academy is a kindergarten through 8th grade rural private school that provides full-time instruction to 50 children from seven villages in the vicinity of the Krishnarajasagara (KRS) Dam.

An Idyllic Setting

The school grounds are situated on an outcrop overlooking the KRS reservoir, which is a vast and important fixture of the region’s agricultural infrastructure. More than that, however, it serves as a tranquil backdrop for learning and contemplative reflection.

Here, students follow a state-approved Kannada-medium curriculum, while those in grades 6 through 8 also receive instruction in English.

Impact

Since 2010 the Adarsha Academy has been serving families in the region.
