Admission Process

The academic year begins for Vidyashilp Academy in June. The admissions usually take place between January and April.

At Vidyashilp Academy, we believe in the power of community. We understand that a strong, cohesive group of students can accomplish more than they ever could alone. Now in our 26th year, we have come to find that the success of our student community is attributed to the culture of mutual respect, integrity, spirit and finally, excellence in their chosen field, whether it is the sciences, ventureship, the arts, sports or social service.

Vidyashilp Academy reserves a priority listing for: siblings of VSA students, Vidyasagar students, children of alumni, children of faculty, and references of alumni, faculty or parents.

No seats are reserved in the Academy against a ‘management quota’ for admissions. The Academy does not accept letters or calls from applicants or their representatives that aim to influence admission decisions.

Any attempt to influence admission decisions will be viewed unfavourably.

The following applicants are eligible for priority listing:

  • Siblings of VSA Students
  • Vidyasagar Students

Step 2

Check Waitlist Status

Waitlisted students will be contacted by the admissions officer and an application form link will be shared for completing the necessary next steps. We urge parents to expedite the submission of the application to ensure that their child is included in the interaction process. Application forms will not be issued after the admission window closes. However, if a vacancy arises, prospective parents will be called to collect an application form from the Academy.

Step 3

Submit Application with Supporting Documents:

For the admission to be recognized by the admissions panel, ensure that the following documents are submitted, along with the completed Application Form:

  • Birth Certificate of the student
  • Aadhar Card of the student & parents
  • Academic Reports of the past two years
  • ID and signature proof of the parents

Step 4

Parent & Student interaction on Campus

Select faculty will interact with prospective students to gauge students’ readiness for flourishing in our balanced curricular environment. This includes an oral, written and minimal physical fitness evaluation.

Please note that there is no fixed syllabus for the evaluations. We do not appreciate or approve the use of agents, intermediaries or preparation centres. These activities are strongly discouraged and viewed unfavourably.

Prospective parents will be invited for a tour of the campus and participate in a brief conversation with the admission officers and/or faculty.

Step 5

Results of the Interaction

The results of the interaction will be conveyed to prospective parents over a phone call or e-mail.

Step 6

Admission Offer Letter

If the admissions decision is positive, parents will receive an Admission Offer Letter for their acceptance.

Step 7

Confirmation of Admission

In view of the large pool of waitlisted applicants every year, we request that the parents acknowledge the Acceptance of Admission by fee payment completed within 3 days of receiving the letter. Acceptance will be finalized only once the payment has been received; failing which the seat will be automatically allocated to the next waitlisted applicant.

At Vidyashilp Academy, we focus on the potential each student embodies, and not solely on their prior accomplishments. We strive to uplift bright, motivated, engaged students through an immersive learning experience.
