Our Philosophy and Pedagogy



Society is moving forward through innovation and global connectivity and it is not easy to predict the needs of the future…because what may be needed today will be defunct tomorrow!And we still continue to teach children today for ‘TODAY’S TIMES’ rather than for the ‘FUTURE.’

As children grow and the learning landscape changes, there has to be a thrust towards equipping children with Thinking Skills – Thinking from the Mind, Heart and Soul – thus focusing on the Intellectual Quotient (IQ), Emotional Quotient (EQ) and the Spiritual Quotient (SQ).

ALC has developed its own pedagogy “Asteria” which helps realize the shining star in every child and gives them the chance to sparkle. ‘Asteria’ is a curiosity driven, integrated theme based pedagogy which focuses on nurturing the Mind (IQ), Heart (EQ) and Soul (SQ). All elements and subject areas within and outside the classroom have been refocused around the Critical thinking, Creative thinking and Academic success skills.

In Latin the meaning of Asteria is ‘star’.
