Value Based Education
Values Today. For a Valuable Tomorrow.
Eternal Charitable Foundation has developed a value based education system combined with modern scientific English language based CBSE curriculum.
It is a combination of Spirituality and Scientific Education.
For us spirituality is the control of ego and vices. Of learning how to be a good human being who cares for humanity and the environment.
The process involves a disciplined practice of prayer and mental affirmations. The scientific education is through an alignment with the CBSE curriculum and a focus on sports and the creative arts, especially music.
Our Teachers act as Role Models for our students
As a culture, in ancient India, children learnt values from their revered teachers, who demonstrated them, by living them.
Our teachers undergo a rigorous short-term teachers training program (3 months), long-term teachers training program (3 5 years). Bi-annually they undergo a refresher course under strict academic monitoring. This program also ensures that we have quality teachers available in Rural areas.
From different backgrounds and ethnicities, the teachers are expected to be, and understand the need to be role models for the values that the children are taught.
Does it work?
A simple dialogue with any child, from any school, will prove it. Each day children are moving one step higher on the ladder of humanity. They are ingrained with values of honesty, par-upkar, sensitivity towards others, inward thinking, the power of confessions and at the same time are highly scholastic and with scientific temperaments. They characterise and practice, Simple Living, High Thinking!.
Visitors from India and abroad frequently come to see the functioning of the Rural Schools, Eternal University, Charitable Hospital and other centers set up from time to time. Impressed by the excellent facilities and their interaction with the students and the staff, they feel pleasure in recording their views. Some such comments are reproduced here.
The beauty of the mountains is only elevated by the inner beauty present throughout this property and its inspired undertaking. Forging whole people with strong technical skills and education with a core of values and dedication to service is both a fine example and a great gift. The vision of Baru Sahib transcends borders and cultures. It has been a singular honor to celebrate US Independence Day in such an inspiring environment with inspiring people. Thank You Baba Ji!!!

It is difficult to express in this letter how impressed I was with Akal Academy – the teachers, students, administrators, and the facilities. I was particularly amazed at the discipline, energy and creativity of the students. Akal Academy truly is shaping the leaders of tomorrow. In addition, I was touched by the many lives saved from despair through the charitable work of the Kalgidhar Society as well as the economic activity generated by the institution. And all of this has bloomed in a remote area in the hills of Himachal Pradesh. It was especially gratifying to recognize many of the American students for their scholastic and athletic achievements.

Today science and technology are very important. The way Baba Iqbal Singh is running Baru Sahib’s academy, he not only imparts education to the students but make them aware about culture as well. When I read the book of Baba Iqbal Singh, I was very much impressed by the way Baba Teja Singh and Baba Atar Singh’s life was described. Akal Academy has so far 130 schools and Baba ji’s mission is to have 500 schools of Akal Academy, Baru Sahib by 2025. This is a very good step and Punjab is with you.

: In Baru Sahib, every kind of religious as well as Cultural education is being imparted to children. I had heard so many rumours about Baru Sahib, but when I went there and saw for myself; again I was confident that Baru Sahib is really imparting a very good education. Free education is also given to the children who cannot pay their fees.
