The school offers students a unique educational experience which, in many ways, is different from schools elsewhere. There are many salient and distinguishing features which contribute towards making the school exclusive and exceptional in the sphere of higher secondary school education.
Integral System of Education
The physical, mental and spiritual aspects of the personality of the student are sought to be developed with a stress on Character Development: A major focus of the school is character development, in addition to academic excellence. Inculcating the virtues of adherence to truth and discipline, dedication to duty and devotion to the Supreme is as important as academic excellence.
The school believes in national integration as is amply portrayed in its emblem and follows an open-admission policy purely on the basis of merit. It encourages enrolment of boys and girls irrespective of income, class, creed, religion or region with no reservations or preferences for any particular community or religion.
The school has students hailing from all parts of the country and belonging to diverse religious groups. They fully participate in all the festivals celebrated and cultural programmes conducted at the school. This serves to give them a feel of the hallowed ideals of 'Unity-Purity-Divinity', which is the quintessence of Indian culture. The students also get an idea of the comprehensive pattern of world-culture by observing spiritual aspirants who come to Prashanthi Nilayam in thousands from every nook and corner of the world.
The school has a highly competent and dedicated team of teachers drawn from different parts of India who are committed to be exemplars of values. The tutors live with the children at the hostel to give personal attention to every student much like the ancient gurukula system and ensure an atmosphere of love and care.
Integration of Value Education
The school integrates value education and teaching in all its programmes. It is the relentless pursuit at the school to instill in every student the universal and timeless doctrine of Fatherhood of God and Brotherhood of Man. There are also special Human Value classes held to provide students a deeper insight into religion and philosophy.
Human Values Course
In addition to the usual curriculum, a basic spiritual education course drawn upon the universal Sai principles of Sathya, Dharma, Shanthi, Prema and Ahimsa is instructed at the school not merely by precept but more by example.
Nurturing Climate: The school has a fostering climate based on the twin foundations of love and discipline. It is suffused with prayers, bhajans, stories and parables drawn from different faiths of the world.
The education at the school is completely free of charge. The school does not collect any fees whatsoever from the students. There are no tution fees, no examination fees, no sports fees.
