The Bhaktivedanta Gurukula and International School (BGIS) offers a unique balance of the best of both worlds - the traditional and the modern, the Vedic and the contemporary , the spirittual and the temporal. A thorough academic programme with small classes. Enthusiastic teachers with the time to help each student. A well equipped campus in the rich cultural and spiritual town of Vrindavan. The youthful energy of an international student body student and playing together. Yearly adventures that include visiting South Indian holy places, mountain climbing, hiking and swimming. Each feature of BGIS is geared to bring out each student's best. To offer them not just classroom lessons but a few lessons in life as well. To help them rise above just being good students and let them out into the world as good people.
Which is why we call ourselves a Gurukula. Here, the students imbibe in their hearts a devotion to Lord Krishna based on the teachings of the Bhagvad-Gita. Teachings that are delivered not sentimentally or dogmatically but in a philosophical and cultural way, using both contemporary and traditional educational methods.
We are also an International School. We use the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) exam in the 10th standard and the Indian Certificate of Education (ICE) exam in 12th.
Bearing witness to the well-rounded nature of BGIS is the fact that our teachers and students come from around the globe, providing a rich, natural forum for cultural exchange and appreciation.
Thus, the BGIS experience gives a student the opportunity to excel in his studies while holding a spiritual worldview. The outcome is a well-balanced individual ready to take on life's challenges.
