NIAS-supported Advanced Learning Centres (ALCs) have been set up to provide early mentoring to school children who demonstrate high learning ability and exceptional self-motivation to realize big ideas in life. The programme seeks to nurture students from a young age and help them grow into responsible, high impact individuals, as experts in their fields.
At ALC, children develop knowledge and skills in a wide range of multi-disciplinary areas. They also work to develop in-depth ability in their chosen areas of interest through mandatory project work, which is showcased to help them find expert mentors in the field.
Currently, three Advanced Learning Centres are operational, in Bangalore and Hyderabad. New centers are being added this academic year.
