In a nation where mediocrity holds sway, Chokhmah International Academy, CIA, was envisioned. In a place where education means the ability to read, write and be decorated with certificate only, CIA, an institution founded on deep moral values and tailored towards equipping the students with the prerequisite 21st century skills to conquer their communities, nation and world was birthed.
The academy epitomizes DIET (Diligence, Integrity, Excellence and Teamwork). It is a breeding ground for brilliant minds; an abode for well-groomed students. It inspires and nurtures children to reach their true potential. CIA (Day) provides a conducive environment for them to harness their natural aptitude for the betterment of humanity. According to Swami Vivekananda, “Education is the manifestation of perfection already in man”.
In the words of Albert Einstein, “Education is not the learning of facts but the training of the mind to think”. Subsequently, the curriculum is effectively structured and the lessons pedagogically planned to guide our students to the required vortex needed to lead them to the pinnacle of their chosen discipline. They are made to build the capacities of the spirit of inquiry, creativity, entrepreneurial and moral leadership. A well-crafted programme on Character and Excellence is incorporated into our curriculum.
At CIA (College), we light the candles that will provide the necessary illumination for a people groping in educational darkness. We are the light at the end of the tunnel, a beacon of hope for a world of oddities and absurdities.
The school is located in a serene environment and our values(Diligence, Integrity, Excellence and Teamwork) can be seen in the behaviour of our pupils/students and in the school environs.
