City-based Sai International School aims to train 200 students at its two Centres of Excellence in science and commerce streams.
The two Centres of Excellence would offer training to the students both for board examinations and competitive examinations in engineering, medicine, chartered accountancy, cost accountancy, law and company secretary.
Initially, the school would hire 35 faculty members for training 200 students at the two Centres of Excellence and subsequently the student strength would be taken up to 400. There would be a separate set of faculty members for training students for the board and the competitive examinations.
Addressing mediapersons here at the launch of the two Centres of Excellence, Bijoy K Sahoo, chairman, Sai International School said, "The objective of starting the two Centres of Excellence is to provide result oriented training to the students for the competitive examinations. The career option of the students would be evaluated by the parents in consultation with the career counsellors of the school."
Sahoo said 50 students have already been enrolled at the two Centres of Excellence and the next round of admission would be on the basis of performance of the students at the board examinations. The Centres of Excellence would offer two exclusive programmes- one year target programme and a two-year integrated CBSE course programme.
While the one-year target programme is meant for offering training to the students for the competitive examinations, the two-year integrated CBSE course programme has been designed for the students of Sai International School to offer coaching for the CBSE board examination.
Arun Prakash, principal, Sai International School said, "Sai International School has devised unique curse materials, class room teaching methods and simulation test series to prepare students for the competitive examinations. The school will also take adequate care in integrating courses to ensure that the students get properly trained for the board examinations."
Sai International School would have a counselling cell which would help students in finding out information on career options, competitive examinations as well as institutions for studies.
