India is a country of traditions and culture. There has been a tradition of imparting advanced education based on cultural ideas since ancient times. There has always been a tradition of Guru-disciple in India, so a unique confluence of knowledge of global education with Indian values is seen in Indian students. Sara Sant Atulanand Residential Academy, located in the holy city of Varanasi, has been following this teaching method. The children here develop the values of 'Aatma Dipo Bhava'.
Sant Atulanand Residential Academy was established in the year 2001 by Dr. Raj Singh. Dr. Raj Singh was a dedicated educationist and a true visionary. He was inspired by the dream of his guru 'Nirvana Peethadheeshwar Sri Sri 1008 Maha Mandaleshwar Swami Atulanand Ji Maharaj', who envisioned a school rooted in the ethos of the traditional Indian Gurukul system.
Dr. Raj Singh took it as his life's mission to fulfill his mentor's dream. He was assisted in this pious mission by his scholar wife Mrs. Vidya Singh to educate the children to become a responsible citizen through global education with Indian values.
Confluence of science and spirituality
Located in one of the oldest cities in the world, SARA is an educational institution that blends science and spirituality. And the holy city of the Ganges, Varanasi provided the perfect setting for this mission. Taking inspiration from the traditional Gurukul system, Sara offers accommodation to outsiders as well as local children. All this is done keeping in mind the goal of holistic education.
