CAA Syllabus

At present the senior school has classes 7 to 12, and the junior school from class 4 to 6. The boys take the class 10 examination at the age of 15 and class 12 examinations at the age of 17. The medium of instruction is English but the school lays equally a strong emphasis on Hindi too.
The subjects taught in the normal curriculum are : Hindi, English, Sanskrit, Punjabi, Gujarati, French, Geography, History, Civics, Economics, Commerce, Maths, Physics, Biology, Chemistry, Psychology, Career Counseling, Music,Automobile Engineering, Woodwork, Metal work, Book craft, Computer studies and fine arts.
We advise that the parents prepare the children with the help of the past papers which are available along with the Prospectus. The papers give a correct idea of the degree of difficulty in the exam.
