icon Our Story

The world is changing at breakneck speed. The children who are in school today will see a dramatically different world in their 30’s. Will they be ready for it? ACadru is one solution to this problem.

The jobs of the future will depend on the tectonic changes taking place in the spheres of business, economy, science and culture. Add AI to the mix, and one begins to understand how a lot of work will be mechanised and automated so that machines may carry them out effectively. What then are the jobs for the current kindergarten generations? And how can we prepare them?

The current education systems encourage studying and learning specialised subjects in depth. At the risk of excluding other important topics, students often have a hard choice to make. When we choose a stream, there are some subjects that we choose, and some that we reluctantly leave behind. An interdisciplinary approach, on the contrary, includes different subjects from various streams. It draws appropriately from several disciplines at the same time to redefine problems outside of normal boundaries. It often even results in solutions based on a new understanding of complex situations.

We need to accept that learning is not an isolated process. ACadru is a carefully curated collection of thoughts across all disciplines created by a team of experts. Its multidisciplinary approach creates an interest-based curriculum which aims to uncover an area of learning which encompasses various themes and kickstarts unique combinations of thought processes in the learner.

Mathematics and geography? That’s how you predict earthquakes. Similarly, the combination of nature and architecture has given the world some of the best design-thoughts in the form of biomimicry.

“What stream have you chosen?” Such a question haunts students at almost any senior level. Was it the right choice? The doubt that hits us in the gut stays for years.

How will the choices that you make today in terms of things you learn impact your career tomorrow? What projects to do to build a profile that helps you acquire relevant 21st century skills? How can you shore up your CV that you can successfully position yourself for top colleges in the world?

ACadru is a way out of the cycle of self-doubt and helps you build your profile for future academic success and career development.
