Modifying the Uniform Definition of Coaching Centre
Established out of a mother's concern towards his son of shifting to another city to undergo coaching for entrance examinations, Centre for Advanced Learning (CFAL) is today a creator of large numbers of IITs and Olympiads qualifiers. The center was also initiated to meet the need of a learning center in the coastal district of Karnataka in which Mangalore is a prominent city, which is equivalent to coaching centers of Kota and other places that are famous for coaching.
The institution does not prefer to label as a 'coaching provider,' as they do not support crash courses or adopt any shortcuts in the process of achieving one's goal."Until and unless a student does not find the 'joy' element in the learning process, he/she will never be able to enjoy the learning. We provide a holistic learning environment for the students where they are not confined within any boundaries," stated Severine Rosario, Principal, Centre for Advanced Learning.
Holding the motto of "Be Your Best", CFAL do not force the students towards subjects, which are not of their interest, rather they give empathizes on subjects in which the students' heed lies
Holding the motto of "Be Your Best", CFAL do not force the students towards subjects, which are not of their interest, rather they give empathizes on subjects in which the students' heed lies. "We took a span of ten years to develop the contents and we every day keep on updating those according to the requirement," says Rosario. Backing the teaching-learning process, each teacher in CFAL is convinced to put their entire capabilities in shaping the future of the students. The institution encourages the teachers to be incredibly creative and interactive in their teaching, which makes the students active and inclines their willingness towards learning.
Annually a number of students from all over the country come to the institution to avail guidance for examinations like the International Mathematical, Physics, Chemistry, Astronomy & Biology Olympiad, Regional Mathematical Olympiad, NTSE, KVPY and NMTC. The institution also offers classes for students from 1st Standard to 12th Standard. "There are endless success stories of students from CFAL. Since the inception itself, we have been able to stand confidently on the desired goals and we are continuing on this journey to achieve more milestones," claims Rosario.
Be it the story of Sumith who was Karnataka State Rank-1 in JEE-Advanced 2014 or the news of all the students being selected in NTSE 2016-17 from Dakshina Kannada district being CFAL students, the institution has been always in the pages of the national newspapers for its incomparable performances. CFAL received exceptional recognition when a student of CFAL named Aditya Prakash represented India along with five more students from other parts of the country in the International Math Olympiad, 2017 held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
"The most rewarding experience of the institution is when the students visit during their vacation and take classes for their juniors. For instance, Aditya Prakash who is now in class 12thtakes the Maths Olympiad classes for students of 9th -11th Standard, assuring a bright future for his juniors," shares Rosario. Where most of the private coaching institutes in India have created a system, which is based on rote learning and practice tests, CFAL is breaking all the norms and providing a unique learning system.
