Headmaster, Mr. Rashid Sharfuddin informed the press that the myth of Boarding Schools not doing well in academics has been shattered. One has to only look around at academic achievements of boarding schools in Dehradun both in CBSE and ICSE boards. At SelaQui, we aim to create a spirit of academic excellence as well as of sports and co-curricular activities. Mr. Sharfuddin credited the good results to not only a very committed and spirited faculty, focused students but also to the rigorous academic process of the School. The School also sends a large number of students to IIT and Medical colleges every year due to a much focused Gurukul programme.  The aim now is to raise the bar and work on good college placements in the coming days informs the Headmaster.

  

Career Fair at SelaQui

The Career Fair organized at SelaQui International School in Dehradun, one of the best CBSE boarding school in Indiaon April 20, 2018 saw great fervor among the students. Only a few among the top 10 boarding schools in India, SelaQui takes great initiative and pride in training students of classes 10, 11 and 12 (the SeQuins) and offer them the opportunities available in the different avenues of college education that would make them ready for their future enterprise.

The students interacted in an engaging session with representatives of more than 15 colleges and universities from the USA, among which were the big campuses of Arizona State University and Indiana University. The representatives of these universities gave the SeQuins a brief introduction to their institution following which the students went to the desks of those institutions that interested them and clarified their queries about admission procedures, eligibility criteria and scholarships.

The students were given brochures with complete information and contact details. Interestingly most universities offered 200+ research programs which fortunately, give the students a lot of options to choose from. Such fairs open up the students’ horizon to a plethora of opportunities out there and help us make informed choices. Kudos to our SelaQui!
