Are you curious, creative, collaborative and interested in a variety of things? Then your learning must be highly personalised too.
Our learners determine what they learn, how they wish to learn, and when they wish to learn. We offer numerous ways to master examination taking as well as learning about their own interests and passions in deep and engaging ways.
Our learning programs resemble the real world of learning, where there is flexibility, self-determination, along with fun and excitement. Our high school and post high-school (Bridge Program) are both dynamic and entirely customisable, enabling each learner to build a flexible learn journey that is designed with THEIR inputs and to suit THEIR needs.
Our learning spaces include online, in offices, public libraries, in museums, in co-working spaces, in art galleries, at sports centers, in games fields, by the beach, on docked ships, on field trips and just about anywhere. Learning is the goal; Spaces are planned and scheduled well in advance, as per the needs of our learning pods (groups of learners). Admissions are open to Grades 9-12 learners from all across Chennai now.
P.S: We are currently in an online-only mode, and our learners will meet at our distributed learning spaces after we commence in-person expert-facilitation.
At beyond 8, we believe in developing a range of interests. Through a process we call, 'Dream Mapping', we identify our learner's interests and provide a range of exposures in them to develop deeper understanding. By attending talks, weekend workshops, 2 week courses, 2 month internships and in a variety of other ways, our learners develop a wide range of skills and knowledge that are becoming necessary to thrive in the ever-changing workplaces of the 21st century.
Not only do our high-school learners meet and learn from practising experts from industry, but they are also guided through their learning and application of skills by experts. This experience is also augmented by peer learning (both online and in our learning spaces) by our learning facilitators, in order for all learners to develop greater self-worth and independent thinking skills.
Beyond 8 is a result of over 25 years of research and experimentation at Headstart Learning Centre, Chennai. Co-Founded by educationalists Raaji Naveen & Naveen Mahesh with a singular focus on re-imagining the learning environment for children, Beyond 8 is the future of education.
Peter Block, the author of 'Community', categorises people into 2 groups: 'producers / citizens', and 'consumers'.
Citizens produce the future; they do not wait, beg, or dream for the future in hope. Consumers, on the other hand, give power away and believe that their own needs can be best satisfied by the actions of others (from elected officials and school curricula to shopping malls).
Beyond 8 is looking for learners who are passionate, empathetic, creative, collaborative, innovative citizens to produce the future. Get in touch with us on WhatsApp at +91 9962601715 or write to us at contact at beyond8.in today to embark on your journey of lifelong learning.
