“A school for families who know there’s a problem in the way we’re educating our children and want better.”
A Common Sense Education
We (parents of two children) started Flourish in June 2021. Flourish is an open, alternative, learner-driven, mixed-age school in Pune in partnership with the Acton Academy, Austin. We intend to provide a learner-driven, personalised learning experience for our children and those of other families who are looking for an educational experience fit for the 21st century.
At present, the school serves learners in grades 1-8 (ages 6-14) and will grow with them until grade 12. We are accredited with The International Association of Learner Driven Schools (IALDS) and our learners can take exams under the National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), Cambridge or the Maharashtra State Board of Open Schooling.
The school partners with the Acton Academy in Austin, Texas which has been running a similar school in the United States since 2008, with astounding results.
We are located in Magarpatta City, Pune.
How is Flourish different?
We believe that each child that enters The Flourish School will find a calling that changes the world.
These young people will become independent learners that find great joy in learning within a tight knit community that upholds the highest standards of excellence.

Measuring Mastery. Not test scores.
Earn badges to prove mastery of new skills
Our young learners celebrate the mastery of tools, skills and character by earning badges, assembling portfolios and taking part in public exhibitions.
