New York Academy is a progressive American International School. Our students are engaged in learning, and learning to learn!

A progressive education is designed to meet the academic, social, and emotional needs of all students. At New York Academy, we pride ourselves on meeting the needs of our students who come from both here in Hyderabad and all over the world. Our teachers come from all over the world and are highly qualified, dedicated to our students, and committed to professional growth. Our cutting-edge program, curriculum and pedagogy ensures the holistic development of each child.

We know that one of parents’ top priorities is to provide their children with the best education possible. Often this means a progressive education where students develop 21st century skills while still achieving academic excellence. But is it possible to achieve these two ideals in one learning environment?

This is exactly what we’re doing here at New York Academy. We create an environment where students learn to learn, reason critically, think creatively, and develop the capacity to produce innovative solutions to modern challenges. By empowering students to take charge of their education, we help our students build the intrinsic motivation necessary to succeed in school and beyond. Our students don’t just learn the answers to test questions, they learn to ask the questions that build knowledge to succeed in and out of the classroom. We are committed to guiding our students to be ethical and global and to learn with a sense of social responsibility to make the world a better place. Our school community helps students learn to value diversity and inclusion through their daily experience.

How we instruct and engage students in learning is just as important as the knowledge, concepts, and skills our students learn! New York Academy uses research-evidence best practice including the workshop approach, cooperative group learning, learning centers, guided instruction, direct instruction, and Maker learning with the design thinking process. We have adopted the American Education Reaches Out (AERO) Standards, which are a robust set of learning outcomes for all subjects with high expectations for academic achievement. The AERO standards serve as the curriculum framework for many of the top international schools around the world. In addition to this, we offer exemplary Sports, Art, Music, Drama, Theatre, Foreign Language and Design Thinking Programs.

Parents shouldn’t have to choose between a progressive learning environment and academic excellence. Therefore, NYA has been established with the vision to create a blueprint of the kind of education our next generation needs to succeed in a World that is largely unknown to us.
