A sprawling campus with spacious structures and lush green grounds, and commodious classrooms that spread a sense of desire to learn are the hallmarks of any good school.

The Aga Khan Academy near Hardware Park perfectly fits into bill of a modern school that respects the age-old ethos and promotes space for every activity a child learns for apart from studies. Within a year of its establishment it has made the mark for which it is established. The kids look relaxed in classrooms and totally engrossed in co-curricular activities when outside the classrooms.

“Purpose of education should be to create leaders than just imparting knowledge. With this motto the Aga Khan Academy has been set up in Hyderabad, the second in the 18 academies proposed in 14 countries across the world,” says John Puddefoot, Head of Academy. The academy was set up on an invitation by the State government to Prince Aga Khan during his visit to the city a few years ago.
