Mr. RISHI RAJ JAIN - FOUNDER
SCJ World Academy has been conceived in the memory of Late Shri Satish Chandra Jain who was closely associated with educational institutions in the early sixties. His son, Mr. Rishi Raj Jain is the Chairperson of the Board for the Radiant Group, including SCJ Buildtech Pvt. Ltd., founded in 1961. The company’s businesses are spread across a spectrum of industries, including engineering, construction and manufacturing. Over 2 million square feet of construction projects have been completed under the guidance of Mr. Jain. In the years that he has been at the helm of the group, he has accelerated growth, built meritocracy and enhanced stakeholder value. Bureaucrat, historian, visionary; Mr. Rishi Raj Jain is all this and more. He’s a mentor, caring benefactor and an acclaimed entrepreneur. Mr. Jain has conceptualised SCJ World Academy to offer aesthetically designed buildings, state-of-the-art laboratories, fully equipped resource centers, one of the finest auditoriums in India and residential facilities at par with best in the world. His efforts to research and connect with some of the best architects and builders in the world has ensured that the school has a great premium infrastructure to begin with. Mr. Jain is the founding pillar of the World Academy, providing it the guidance and strength it needs to achieve its aims.
Educational leaders must guide their school through the challenges posed by an increasingly complex environment. World Academy has a broad leadership team, including: the co-founder and his team, a head of school, a headmistress, a chief administrative officer, a director of teaching and learning, a curriculum coordinator and project consultants.
Mentors are the heart of the World Academy. Developing the teaching talent and incentivizing best mentors, retaining good mentors are all significant to improving the quality of teaching. World Academy plans to align the rewards of teaching more closely with the values it brings to society. The comprehensive, multi-step selection process of our mentors ensures that only the finest people are part of the World Academy.
World Academy has a highly developed, coherent, intelligent and responsibly evolving “school design” that lays out the hundreds of important choices that go into the conception and execution of a great school. The school design process started well before the opening of the 20 acre campus in 2016. The creation of that design was a highly collaborative process, and World Academy is committed to maintaining a high degree of fidelity to the design.
World Academy expects students both to be with teachers and students in a traditional school setting and to take advantage of the power and flexibility of new technology. Students enjoy a rich mix of instructional techniques. Part of the day is in traditional classroom settings; other portions are with small teams of students on project-based work; and some time is spent pursuing highly individualised learning, often with the aid of technology. This requires a serious commitment to technological infrastructure, which is imbedded in the World Academy plan.
World Academy expects students to pursue significant independent study. Support for this approach manifests itself in different architecture (for example, “open” areas within the school where students can work on their own or in small groups); a different schedule (time during every day for students to pursue their areas of excellence; and faculty support (mentors specially trained to facilitate this educational approach).apply now
Mentors who bring forth a world of learning.
At the World Academy, there are no teachers instead, there are mentors. Because teachers only teach whereas mentors mould. Mentors not just impart knowledge, but also shape the outlook and persona of a student. Be it academics, sports, performing arts or other kinds of art, it is the mentors who identify, nurture and encourage talent.
For that reason, the selection procedure of mentors at the World Academy is more stringent than most schools and entails multiple rounds of interviews with the founders, reputed academicians and demonstration classes to showcase the prospective mentor’s skills.
Once with the World Academy, mentors undergo regular training sessions to keep them abreast of the developments in the field of education, technology, internet platforms, learning aids and presentation platforms. Instead of standard tests, the mentors are trained in evaluating students differently, based on the diverse ways of absorbing knowledge. While some learn from listening alone, others do better with audio-visual aids and some by performing the task first-hand. At the World Academy, it’s called the Real Mentor Program.
