About Chandra Sekhar Academy
Chandra Sekhar Academy conceived at the out-skirts of Puri in a quiet academic ambience about 12 kms off from the madding crowds of the township on Puri-Konark Marine Drive Road at Balighai in the year 2004. The school surrounded by rural habitation has no such nearby English medium school to look after or to cater an international curricula & so the school came into being to make the rural children avail this CBSE curricula hassle free at an affordable rate. Besides regular CBSE curricula, Japanese language and culture has been taught as an elective subject from Nursery to Senior Secondary (+2)level. This is the only CBSE school in Odisha which nurtures Japanese language & culture with utmost precision and neatness along with its regular CBSE course.
Adding another colourful feather into its cap on 6th April 2018 the school opened its international branch in Kyoto, the former capital & the temple city of Japan. There were no such Indian based English medium school in Kansai region, western Japan. So the school was made for the children of Indian & its peripheral expats staying in western Japan and for those who have left their families in respective natives without having an affordable school here. It upheld the proud legacy of becoming the first ever Indian based English medium school in Kansai region, western Japan.
Looking into the career prospect of our +2 students we thought it wise to make them avail an IT career as India is recognised more for its IT in Japan and the school is already having its basement of Japanese language & culture. So it followed with an unanimous decision and an IT training centre (TICSA) has been opened inside the premises of the parent school 13th Oct 2019 . Along with various other computer courses O-level & A-level NIELIT course has been imparted approved by the Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology, Govt. of India. Many countries of the world especially Japanese companies in India & Japan desirous of recruiting them after completion of A-level & it has been made the only centre in the country where A-level is supported by Japanese language & culture for its in-depth facilitation.
A state-of-the-art Japanese language training centre has been opened separately for higher Masters & PhD studies in Japan or job oriented professional courses having skill based language training & expertise.
The school has been made available under "one roof campus" to take care of the prospective youths of the township as well as the state along with the surrounding villages and hamlets like Baliguali, Beladala, Chaitana, Dalanai, Bhuan, Bangara etc. encircling the school to have this rare privilege of sending their children to this school and thereby not only educate them with CBSE curricula but also extending support to choose their livelihood as well.
Over more than a decade & half of its edu-service to the township and its suburbs made the school stand majestic in a lush-green, eco-friendly environment to chant its hymn of success exchanging culture & education and thereby setting up a bridge between the two countries. The school is not only popular for catering education to the rural community of Odisha but also popular in far off Japan for its relentless service to make students learn Japanese language & culture and thereby bridge up the communication gap between Japan & India at grass-root level.
