Alpha school, CIT Nagar, affiliated to the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) was established in the year 2013 by the Alpha Educational Society. It is run under the overall guidance of Dr. Mrs. Grace George, the Chairperson and Mrs. Suja George, the Vice Chairperson, who believe that small beginnings lead to greater achievements.
Based on the success achieved and the service rendered for 5 decades through the Alpha Matriculation School at CIT Nagar, the Trust chose to expand and offer the CBSE curriculum through Alpha School.
With a rambling campus, its own playground, large and airy classrooms, well equipped labs and an infrastructure within the prime Chennai city, the Alpha School at CIT is not only designed to evolve into an infrastructure with resources and amenities proportionate with the essential standards laid down by the CBSE but is also a very secure and caring environment providing equal opportunities to all the learners who come from multi socio-economic and cultural back grounds.
At Alpha the well trained and dedicated, teaching faculty is committed to create milestones and engrave success stories by aiding every student to learn and grow aptly. This is attained through a balanced curricular and co-curricular set of activities which are designed and executed throughout the academic year.
The school aims to deliver concoctions in accordance to the learners’ needs. As the school progresses to higher levels it aims at materializing its vision.
It gives me great pleasure to welcome you all to the Alpha Group of Institutions. Alpha Group of Educational Institutions has institutionalized ‘Seek, Share and Serve’ as its motto for a continued search for knowledge and information, and share the received wisdom with the community to selflessly serve mankind. Every marble piece has within, certain unwanted parts, needing to be chiseled out by its maker, before being sculpted into a beautiful statue. Alpha over the past four and a half decades is in the pursuit of this noble mission to help mould blossoming minds. We have diligently developed our academic philosophy by laying great emphasis on the pursuit of knowledge, its application and skills to help in its dissemination. Our underlying philosophy is to create new benchmarks by incorporating new initiatives in the field of education through modern and innovative teaching and learning methodologies. Alpha knows no bounds in knowledge and realises the margin fades forever and ever as it moves. But within its boundaries, the disseminated knowledge embodies the spirit of inquiry, research and quality. Our search is incessant, our service is ceaseless and our perseverance untiring. Imparting right knowledge, enhancing wisdom and creating distinct individuals is our pursuit.
Today we stand in the threshold of a new era-an era empowered by ‘knowledge economy’. Even as we prepare to ride the waves of change, on our foundations built on solid rock, firmly anchored on strong life principles. Alpha prides itself in not only being an institution imparting life’s latest know-how but also instilling human core values. May God bless you. May His mighty hand guide you in all your endeavors.

“Education is not preparation for life, education is life itself”, -John Dewey.
Alpha concurs on the magnitude of this statement and strives to impact the lives of the students under its fold with positive and transforming learning experiences. The holistic intervention in education is imperative in every stage of the growth phase of the student.
We are thus constantly striving to provide a conducive environment to create a balance in the academic, emotional, spiritual, creative and physical development of students. We believe that in today’s world where change is constant and fast paced, we need to, as educators be adaptable to the continuous innovative and improvised models and trends in education research. This helps us to deliver quality of highest standards and provide a firm foundation for the holistic development of our students. The learning environment in the classroom is also aimed at teachers being sensitive to the various needs of different learners.
Alpha continuously strives for excellence in the field of education by accepting the best John F Kennedy once said, “A child miseducated is a child lost”, thus at Alpha we go the extra mile to delve into all the developmental aspects of the student. We provide continuous training to our staff, in order that they may be agents of qualitative and holistic transformation in the lives of the students who pass through the portals of our Institutions. practice from around the globe and implementing innovation in our instructional practice to provide an impetus and develop students to be worthy leaders and citizens of our nation.
At Alpha we believe that the training of the mind to develop lateral thinking and the ability to process knowledge and information in a critical and analytical manner are skills which are imperative in today’s competitive world. The skills to be imbibed in order to interpret and apply the knowledge imbibed and to provide solutions to complex problems and the ability to make informed decisions is a very essential quality much sought after in the corporate environment. Thus, we ensure that these skills are developed by benchmarking our teaching and training to the best global practices and research.
The true goal of education is not to be self-serving but to serve and contribute to society with empathy and benevolence. We aspire to make every student in our care, blossom into responsible and thinking individuals who would be life-long learners and be agents of transformation and thus worthy citizens. I would like to reiterate this commitment by quoting the Dalai Lama,
“When educating the mind of our youth, we must not forget to educate their hearts.”

I have great joy in welcoming you to this esteemed institution. Diversity implies growth; diversity has always been an inherent feature of the Alpha Group of Institutions. Alpha School is a new venture undertaken by the Alpha Educational Society at the most appropriate time. The channelised effort of the Alpha Educational Society in founding a school under the National Board is to transform every child into a responsible human being.
There is a spark in every child’s mind. The Alpha School believes that this spark has to be transformed into a brilliance that benefits not just the child but the society as well. Hence, we provide an education that would develop all aspects of each individual student which is relevant to his/her needs and which will prepare him/her for life and face the challenges of the competitive world.
Our students are encouraged to participate to the fullest possible extent in the social, physical and cultural activities of the school so that they may emerge as self-disciplined, responsible and well adjusted citizens, capable of playing an active and positive role in modern society.
Our school is strengthened by very supportive parents who are actively involved in all aspects of their children’s education.
We are very proud of our history, our values, our outstanding facilities and the high standards achieved by our students.
Wishing you all good luck,
- Mrs. Reena Alfred
