"It only takes one pioneer to change a generation"-

This maxim truly befits the late Mr. V. V. Bhat's life and deeds. His ultimate dedication for teaching and the objective of sharing and imparting knowledge to the young minds, gave birth to his dream project, the Children's Academy School. An educationist in the true sense, he brought into use his dedicated pattern of teaching, the diligence of his staff and the unflinching support of his students to build an institution par excellence.

With limited resources in hand, but zealous ones that made up his team, he went on to building an immensely strong foundation, which has today grown into the gargantuan institution known as the Children's Academy Group of Schools. Today Children's Academy Group of Schools is an institution, a system that houses 8000 students and uses the resources of 750 teachers and supporting staff.

The school at Bachani Nagar, Malad East, is the parent institution of the Children's Academy Group of Schools. Its foundation was laid in 1970 in a humble manner' in a few rooms of a residential building named Ishwar Bhavan. Soon, in 1979, Mr. V. V. Bhat acquired a plot of land in Bachani Nagar, Malad where he constructed a few classrooms. His family, students and staff members stood staunchly by his side in every venture of his.

In May 1986, the construction of a sprawling structure began at Bachani Nagar. The seven-storied building, which was in a league apart even back then, was fully constructed in 1991, and thousands of happy students were shifted to brilliant new classrooms.

New Arms of Children's Academy Group of Schools

Eventually, Children's Academy Group of Schools became the school parents would reckon with and wanted their wards to school in, but accessibility to the Malad branch was a challenge, as these parents resided at a distance from the school. We comprehended their need and urge to join us and therefore came into existence two newer branches of Children's Academy Group of Schools, one situated at Ashok Nagar, Kandivali and the other at Thakur Complex, Kandivali.

Introduction of CISCE curriculum

Believing in change for the best, in year 2007-08, Children's Academy Group of Schools moved on to the Council for Indian Certificate of Secondary Education Examination (CISCE) board curriculum, from the then existing curriculum of Maharashtra State Board of Secondary and Higher Secondary Education. Children's Academy Group of Schools, acquired the prestigious affiliation from the CISCE council and introduced the curriculum laid down basis the guidelines of CISCE. We now prepare students for Indian Council for Secondary Education (ICSE) examination pattern, offered by CISCE.

Technological Bent

In early 2000's, when use of technology in classrooms, was at a nascent stage, Children's Academy Group of Schools, was one of the few educational institution, to go the technological way. Our inclusive approach, was an impetus for introduction and incorporation of the innovative use of computer technology in classrooms, facilitating first-hand experience to teachers and students. CAGS kept up its m├ętier, by constantly training its teachers in the newest methodologies.

Children's Academy Group of Schools, kept technology at the forefront for classroom sessions, in order to facilitate and impart daily lessons to the students. This encouraged the audio-visual way of learning, which appealed to the learner and the teacher. This innovation in classroom teaching, brought recognition to the Children's Academy Group of Schools, by Intel, revolutionary technology Innovators in education. Intel conferred upon Children's Academy Group of Schools, with the National Award for the "Most innovative use of Computer technology in the classroom"

We were one of the few schools in the city of Mumbai, to bring technology to classrooms and other administrative purposes. Collating and managing data digitally gave a fresh look to managing school works, such as drawing up the timetable, which was otherwise a tedious task.
