Inspired by Amma (Sri Mata Amritanandamayi Devi), the Academy of Arts and Spirituality (AAAS) promotes a spirit-based education drawing from Amma’s teachings on the importance of spiritual knowledge, culture and values premised on compassion and the interconnectedness and wholeness of life.
Our aim is to empower students to acquire, articulate and value the knowledge and skills that will help build noble and compassionate characteristics, and nurture value-based living that will benefit humankind.
Our mission is to provide a rich learning environment where students can excel in the conceptual understanding of the ancient knowledge of Sanatana Dharma and Amma’s teachings, and imbibe their learning in all facets of their personality (physical, mental, intellectual and aesthetic) and their actions.
We aim to foster a system of learning and individual development based on arts and spiritual knowledge where students can boldly endeavour to build a world of love, harmony, peace and mutual respect.
We hope to instil and mould values such as tolerance, respect for diversity, inclusion and excellence that will support students to follow the path of ‘Dharma’ within an environment of love and devotion for the arts, spiritual knowledge and wisdom.

– Shine with Love and Devotion
Our goal is to enable student learning and personal development by:
- Instilling spiritual values through arts and traditional cultural celebration.
- Providing a positive, supportive and nurturing learning environment.
- Developing team spirit through peer group studies.
- Supporting experiential learning through role play, school drama, and community interactions.
- Fostering diversity and socially inclusive values.
- Having a proactive teacher and parent community.
The school programme is based on the values, traditions, and spiritual educational practices drawn from the ancient knowledge of Sanatana Dharma and Amma’s teachings. The design of the school curriculum is largely guided by Amma’s existing Balakendra and Amrita Vidyalaya School programme.
Our programme objective is to make spiritual learning enjoyable and perceivable at an early age, as well as to provide an in-depth and broad knowledge of Sanatana Dharma, Hindu scriptures, the theory and practice of spiritual traditions such as Vedic chanting, devotional singing, basic Sanskrit language, and virtue-based living.
Classes are based on both conceptual knowledge and practical instructions which will help students blossom into empathetic beings enriched with spiritual and compassionate values.

Some people doubt whether children should meditate and do japa at such a young age. The training and discipline which are given in youth will create a strong impression in the mind and play a great role in the building of character. Parents should take care not only to feed and fulfill the wishes of their children but also to discipline them, instilling faith and good culture.
We should tell children while they are very young that there is a power known as God who controls everything. If we teach a child to remember this divinity in all circumstances of life, that child will be able to keep his or her inner poise in every situation, whether it be victory or defeat. ” — Amma
