How to join Sholai as a Student

"I am a Parent and am seriously interested to explore for my child to join Sholai School". "I am a student and wish to join Sholai School".

This is the procedure:

1. Email Sholai ( This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it ) and tell us something about yourself and request an Application Form (Student) or download the Application Form (S).

2. You and your daughter/son fill in the attached Application Forms (Student) and send them to us. Please note that the child/student needs to write two essays. Later we will give him/her a Maths test. These simple tests are designed to give us some feedback. Parents need to send a copy of his/her birth certificate, a passport-sized photo and last year’s report from the school he/she recently attended.

3. Email Sholai School, informing us when you would like to visit. Avoid Saturdays and Sundays. If overnight accommodation is required, your may stay overnight on campus for Rs.1500 for a family (maximum 4 persons) plus Rs.300 for 3 meals per person. On request you may bring 2 more adults.

4. Await confirmation of the dates and your time of arrival. Clarify if you wish to stay overnight. If in doubt phone the Admissions Secretary on : 7868901665.

5. On arrival, you will be given a tour of the campus by 2 students, who will be ready to explain and answer questions.

6. You have an opportunity to meet the teachers and the Principal.

7. If the Application Form (Student) is acceptable to the School, arrangements are made for your child to be at Sholai for a TRIAL PERIOD of one month.

8. Please note Sholai School is not a "Special School". We are ready to take a few children having behavioural or learning difficulties as long as we discern that they will be able to surmount those difficulties within a reasonable time. Parents must be frank about any issues in this regard. Sholai School is inspired by the Teachings of J. Krishnamurti (JK). Parents are advised to read one or more books authored by JK. Children require a certain level of intelligence to comprehend his philosophy.

9. We do not inflict corporal punishment on children. Children who have received corporal punishment at the hands of their parents or teachers in their previous schools, will be emotionally disturbed and may not be able to adjust to our ethos. If your child has received corporal punishment, do inform us about it.
