Embassy Group launches Embassy Academy; strengthens offerings in the education sector


Embassy Groupone of India’s leading real estate developers, announced the launch of Embassy Academy under its Embassy Education vertical. Situated in North Bengaluru within the sprawling integrated township of Embassy Springs, the school campus encompasses 5.30 acres of lush green space and a myriad of amenities. Designed to cater to modern educational needs, the school will be developed in two phases, with a total capacity to accommodate 1350  students in phase one. The School is proposed to be affiliated to Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi.

The admission process would begin from October 2023 for the inaugural academic year with classes commencing from June 2024. Admissions will be open for grades Nursery to 5 in the first year, eventually extending up to grade 12. Offering the CBSE syllabus pattern exclusively, the school will focus on experiential and project-based learning, physical education, and extra-curricular and co-curricular activities. Students will also benefit from science, mathematics, computer, and robotics labs, along with a maker’s space, dedicated studios for music, arts, and dance, libraries catering to both junior and senior levels, dining halls, play areas, and expansive outdoor sports facilities. The campus was designed by the renowned Andy Fisher Workshop, Singapore.

Embassy Academy will distinguish itself with its commitment to international standards, holistic pedagogy, and exceptional infrastructure. The school’s mission is to transform the conventional learning approach by focusing on experiential education, which emphasises how to learn rather than what to learn, promotes habits of self-learning, and encourages independence. This methodology seeks to nurture not only competitive drive but also cooperation, leadership, diligence, punctuality, teamwork, and the cultivation of creative abilities among students. Students will further benefit from small classroom sizes and optimal teacher-student ratio, resulting in individualised focus, enhanced student welfare and classroom control, improved academic outcomes and readiness for higher education.

Embassy Group first ventured into the education field with the launch of Stonehill International School in 2008, which was one of the first schools in South India to offer all three International Baccalaureate programmes. After building a safe and secure learning environment that caters to a diverse community of learners from over 35 countries, the Group is now expanding to meet the growing learning requirements of parents in Bengaluru.

Speaking at the launch of Embassy Academy, Stefano De Napoli, CEO of Embassy Education, said“Embassy Group’s foray into the education sector, through Embassy Education, aims to establish a legacy of excellence and innovation. With Stonehill, an IB school, and now Embassy Academy, a proposed CBSE school, Embassy Education is dedicated to providing top-notch education that fosters holistic development and empowers students for success. Embassy Academy’s launch aligns with the Group’s vision to impact lives positively by creating sustainable environments that encourage progression and growth. The school’s introduction into the educational landscape is anticipated to be a significant milestone in achieving this vision.”

As Embassy Academy prepares to welcome its first cohort of students, the school invites parents and learners to experience a new era of education that blends international standards with local relevance. The school’s dedication to nurturing young minds to become lifelong learners and global citizens is a testament to Embassy Group’s commitment to quality in every endeavour.
