The Alpha group of Institutions, established in the year 1967 has created several benchmarks in the field of education in the past five decades. The first school of Alpha Group of Institutions was opened in the year 1967, at CIT Nagar in Chennai. The roots of Alpha has become stronger since then and has spread its’ branches to seven different institutions one of which is the ALPHA SCHOOL, Porur.
Established in the year 2014, Alpha School, Porur, strives to bring out the individuality of each and every student, instilling in them the determination to “Be the change that they want to see in the world”. The school is affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (Aff No: 1930790).The school is spread over a massive 2 acre, quiet and serene campus, located behind Sri Ramachandra Medical College and adjacent to the Alpha College of Arts and Science .It is surely a place where every Alphian feels that it is a “home away from home” as they feel safe and secure inside this aesthetically designed campus.
As it is said that ‘a HOUSE is built with bricks and stones but a HOME is built with Love….so it is with Alpha….Apart from spacious classrooms and comfortable furniture…..the school is an abode of love…..with a team of dedicated staff members under the guidance of the eminent Chairperson Mrs. Grace George and Mrs.Suja George the most efficient Vice Chairperson. The goal of the school is to build strong individuals who make a difference in the society around them. Alpha strongly believes that every child learns differently and we facilitate the way each child learns. Perhaps, it is this personal attention given to each child through a perfect teacher student ratio that makes every Alphian ‘feel special’ which makes them look forward to come to school each morning.
The visionary leaders of Alpha lead the institution with difference…..the passion they have towards the field of education is brought forward through the following vision and mission statement:
SEEK, SHARE AND SERVE
Alpha is surely fortunate to be blessed with a wonderful team of dedicated teachers who strive to mould each student with a true passion towards this profession. The parents and students of the institution have constantly expressed this at every given opportunity. Hence it is clearly evident that behind every successful Alphian there are surely a number of noble teachers.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the Alpha Group of Institutions. Alpha Group of Educational Institutions has institutionalised ‘Seek, Share and Serve’ as its motto for a continued search for knowledge and information, and share the received wisdom with the community to selflessly serve mankind. Every marble piece has within, certain unwanted parts, needing to be chiseled out by its maker, before being sculpted into a beautiful statue. Alpha over the past four and a half decades is in the pursuit of this noble mission to help mould blossoming minds. We have diligently developed our academic philosophy by laying great emphasis on the pursuit of knowledge, its application and skills to help in its dissemination. Our underlying philosophy is to create new benchmarks by incorporating new initiatives in the field of education through modern and innovative teaching and learning methodologies. Alpha knows no bounds in knowledge and realises the margin fades forever and ever as it moves. But within its boundaries, the disseminated knowledge embodies the spirit of inquiry, research and quality. Our search is incessant, our service is ceaseless and our perseverance untiring. Imparting right knowledge, enhancing wisdom and creating distinct individuals is our pursuit.
Today we stand in the threshold of a new era - an era empowered by ‘knowledge economy’. Even as we prepare to ride the waves of change on our foundations built on solid rock, firmly anchored on strong life principles. Alpha prides itself in not only being an institution imparting life’s latest know-how but also instilling human core values. May God bless you. May His mighty hand guide you in all your endeavors.
“Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself” -John Dewey
Alpha concurs on the magnitude of this statement and strives to impact the lives of the students under its fold with positive and transforming learning experiences. The holistic intervention in education is imperative in every stage of the growth phase of the student
We are thus constantly striving to provide a conducive environment to create a balance in the academic, emotional, spiritual, creative and physical development of students. We believe that in today’s world where change is constant and fast paced, we need to, as educators be adaptable to the continuous innovative and improvised models and trends in education research. This helps us to deliver quality of highest standards and provide a firm foundation for the holistic development of our students. The learning environment in the classroom is also aimed at teachers being sensitive to the various needs of different learners.
John F Kennedy once said, “A child miseducated is a child lost”, thus at Alpha we go the extra mile to delve into all the developmental aspects of the student. We provide continuous training to our staff, in order that they may be agents of qualitative and holistic transformation in the lives of the students who pass through the portals of our Institutions.
Alpha continuously strives for excellence in the field of education by accepting the best practice from around the globe and implementing innovation in our instructional practice to provide an impetus and develop students to be worthy leaders and citizens of our nation.
At Alpha we believe that the training of the mind to develop lateral thinking and the ability to process knowledge and information in a critical and analytical manner are skills which are imperative in today’s competitive world. The skills to be imbibed in order to interpret and apply the knowledge imbibed and to provide solutions to complex problems and the ability to make informed decisions is a very essential quality much sought after in the corporate environment. Thus, we ensure that these skills are developed by benchmarking our teaching and training to the best global practices and research.
The true goal of education is not to be self-serving but to serve and contribute to society with empathy and benevolence. We aspire to make every student in our care, blossom into responsible and thinking individuals who would be life-long learners and be agents of transformation and thus worthy citizens. I would like to reiterate this commitment by quoting the Dalai Lama,
“When educating the mind of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.”
As the privileged Principal of this wonderful school providing exceptional educational outcomes and opportunities for every student, I warmly welcome you to the website of Alpha School, Porur.
Let me begin by quoting Benjamin Franklin,
"Tell me and I forget. Teach me and I remember. Involve me and I learn."
This is indeed my strong belief…..a child learns best by getting involved in the teaching learning process. It is for this reason that we at Alpha give a lot of importance to ‘interactive learning ‘.This is with a mission of making every Alphian apply their learning skills in their day to day lives, thus making the entire process both meaningful and enjoyable. I’m fortunate to collaborate with a team of dedicated staff members who constantly endeavor to make this mission of Alpha come true.
Alpha strives hard to inculcate strong values in the students through various means. Converting every child into a self-reliant and independent citizen, the school provides an amalgam of scholastic and co-scholastic activities. Every Alphian who is harnessed in such an atmosphere is sure to contribute and shoulder responsibilities of the society.
Children need a supportive environment at home and at school. They need to set goals, within their reach until they gain confidence and determination. They should reexamine their priorities, set goals and make specific plans to achieve what they desire. The holistic approach to education provided at Alpha helps to build the confidence of the students so that they can face challenges as they blossom and grow as individuals with academic, social and emotional skills to confront the world at large.
The parents are the most strengthening power in moulding the future of children. Their consistent support empowers us to do more and more. I extend sincere my gratitude to them for their faith in us.
I am confident enough that every Alphian will soar to reach greater heights in life who in turn will be an asset to this country. God Bless!
