We provide a stimulating academic framework that emphasizes individual conscientiousness and respects individuality in its creative inference. The school curriculum not only facilitates seamless progress from formative years through schooling but also encourages students to be hands-on learners who scrutinize, fathom and engage in the world around them. It lays conscious effort towards inculcating non-cognitive skills such as leadership, conflict resolution, self-discipline, and ethical decision-making in tandem with technical abilities vital to excel in professional pursuits. Time table is finagled in such a way that the child grasps the concepts along with a balanced focus on co-curricular activities. Learners are sensitized about environmental issues through a direct curriculum of EVS and interlinking of subjects. We specifically focus on Sustainable Development Goals by engaging learners in different activities such as Plantation Drives, Cleanliness Campaigns, Social Work, Waste Management, Discussions, and Debates throughout the year. The curriculum of GAV focuses on developing an educational program and environment which nurtures our young learners who strive to be good citizens and distinguish themselves in all walks of life.
At GAV, as learners transit through Primary School they are introduced progressively to the world of integrated knowledge while particularly strengthening their aptitude in the core subjects (English, Hindi, Mathematics, Environmental Science, and Social Science). We emphasize multidimensional learning.
The Secondary curriculum offers a wide range of subjects and encourages high academic standards through a practical approach to teaching and learning. The curriculum extends far beyond any textbook.
School clubs create small communities. They attract students who share the same interests such as in music, arts, or sports. Club activities help students develop a sense of unity and teamwork, learning how to work with others in reaching the same goals. They help learners develop social skills. Clubs enable students to meet, mix, and collaborate with other students from different age groups. They are pushed outside of their comfort zone and encouraged to socialize with people they are not very familiar with. Though the first meetings and activities may seem awkward for them, they will soon form meaningful relationships and friendships, which is vital in the lives of adolescents. Students become more confident and independent. Gyan Anant Vidyalaya Clubs have a special feature as each club is based on any one or two SDGs and will work throughout the year on this concept to sensitize students about that particular SDG. The Clubs are as follows:
The club named ‘Urja’ is based on the core subjects Mathematics, EVS, and Science. ‘Urja’ means energy. It focuses on SDG 6 - Clean water and sanitation and SDG 7 - Affordable and clean energy.

The house system was devised to promote team spirit and a sense of belonging to the school. This also enables the senior students of the school to provide care and direction to their junior schoolmates. The house system offers excellent opportunities for student leadership and peer group support. It allows for the promotion of students’ responsibility, “giving pupils the chance to learn and develop leadership skills is an outstanding benefit”. Pavak, Marut, Neer, and Vasudha are four houses in our school. Learners are motivated to participate in inter-house dance, debate, music, poetry, and creative writing competitions.
The academic session starts from April of every year till March. The examination process is divided into two terms.
