Think like a saint, act like a soldier

Open to grades 5 to 12, our school comprises both local and international students. Our teachings are grounded in Sikh principles and incorporate Kundalini Yoga into our academic curriculum which follows the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), UK system.


“Miri Piri Academy is unlike any educational institution on earth. Located in Amritsar, near the Golden Temple, and combining the practices of Kundalini yoga, Sikh dharma and expeditionary learning, MPA provides students the opportunity to grow in body, mind and spirit. The program is balanced to include a diverse range of activities so that students can expand their creativity, physical strength, academic skill, spiritual knowledge, confidence and relational understanding. It is our endeavor at MPA to create an environment that encourages personal growth through shared practices and a dharmic lifestyle.”

Body, Mind, Spirit

An education at MPA is synonymous with meditating and self-reflecting, working hard, and sharing with others. We believe that meaningful learning is a transformative process that includes the whole person. Our students are ready to take on the challenges of life as they learn to walk on the path of “live like a saint, act like a soldier.”

  • We offer a Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE), UK curriculum taught through learning expeditions, projects and traditional teaching methods.
  • All students are expected to achieve a minimum of 5 IGCSE and 3 A Level subjects to enable them to obtain a place at a college/university of their choice.
  • English language immersion classes are provided for those new to the English language.
  • Our students are immersed in term-long learning expeditions that explore, in depth, the world around them.
  • Expeditions are interdisciplinary, exploring issues from multiple angles and perspectives, leading to deep learning experiences.
