CEO’s Message

The late Pele, quite possibly the greatest footballer ever, said, "I am constantly being asked about individuals. The only way to win is as a team. Football is not about one or two or three star players." 

At ACTS Secondary School, we are a team; we are a community. All of us come with different talents and abilities, and together, we have the potential to create something beautiful. Our desire is to see a community of people learning to live and that includes carrying each other along, encouraging each other, and caring for each other. 

If you are not yet a part of our team, I invite you to join the ACTS family. Your success will be our success. Let's create a community that can be a shining light in our world today.

CEO, ACTS Group of Institutions.


Director’s Message

At ACTS we believe in integrated and holistic education, and our experience with the global pandemic has reiterated the need to go beyond core academics and focus on the whole person to improve student outcomes.

While holistic education aims to address the emotional, social, ethical, and academic needs of students in an integrated learning format, we at ACTS Secondary School try to integrate this into the ICSE curriculum, to meet the growing need for our communities to have responsible citizens who have a compassionate understanding of the world around them, and who can adapt and show resilience in times of crisis. Our Principal and staff work hard at making sure that our students are equipped with the necessary skills that they need to face challenges, both in and outside school, and to be successful in everything that they do.

Every child deserves the best and we assure you that at ACTS Secondary School the journey of each child will be enjoyable, safe, enriching and rewarding.

Anupa Gnanakan

Principal’s Message

We at ACTS provide the student the experience of life, skills, social value, environmental awareness, knowledge, and holistic personality development with the proximity of faculty members during working hours as well as extended hours through the offline mode. Talents are identified through an amalgam of classroom learning as well as sports, games, cultural and other allied activities. This 360 degree approach of grooming their personality is the cornerstone of education imparted at ACTS.

We intend to provide the students the best opportunity to learn and grow academically, socially and spiritually in the name of the Lord.
