In the new website page dedicated to the Maharishi Academy's curriculum—
www.maharishiacademy.net/academics/curriculum.html—Maharishi Academy of Total Knowledge: High School for Leadership lays out the unique value of their Consciousness-Based curriculum.
The Maharishi schools and academies around the world have traditionally had an open admissions policy. It has been the experience of Maharishi's schools and academies that when any student expands his consciousness and unlocks his full mental potential, then he becomes proficient in learning.
The improved academic potential of students through Consciousness-Based Education has been shown throughout the world. The following are a few examples as mentioned in the website page:
• At Maharishi School of the Age of Enlightenment in Iowa, the average student score on standardized tests is in the top 1% of the nation.
• In Maharishi School in England, every student received qualifying scores for University on the national exams. The school was ranked as one of the top 12 in the rankings of over 4,400 private schools.
• At the Maharishi Schools and Academies in India, 100% of the students in 45 schools achieved qualifying scores for colleges and universities.
The curriculum page addresses students themselves who visit the Maharishi Academy website: 'As you expand your consciousness through our consciousness-based system of education, and use more and more of your inner intelligence, you will naturally find it easier to absorb more knowledge and to retain it more easily. This competitive edge means that you, a student of Maharishi Academy, will gain intellectual mastery in Mathematics, English and Writing, the Sciences, Languages, and History. You will learn these subjects at a deeper level and, at the end of your senior year, be ready for success at any university in the world.'
In addition, through the Science of Creative Intelligence, students see how the same principles of intelligence and growth are found to be the basis of every discipline: English, mathematics, science, and art. Through the practice of the Transcendental Meditation Technique, students discover that the same principles of intelligence and growth seen in Nature around them and in the academic disciplines they study, are at the basis of their own personal growth as a student and as a human being.
'Each course is organized to provide not only the deepest and most recent knowledge in its field but also to allow you to relate it all your other courses and to your personal life.'
For details of a typical course schedule please visit the curriculum page. The courses may be different depending on the student's individual interests and skills.
The routine of study at Maharishi Academy of Total Knowledge involves beginning each academic day with 15 minutes practice of the Transcendental Meditation Programme. During a class, as the students assemble, for example, the points of knowledge required to solve the math, computer, or language problems posed by the teacher, a remarkable process begins. The mind of the student begins to spontaneously draw upon the cosmic intelligence accessed during meditation and he or she achieves the first breakthrough in problem solving ability. This integration of human and cosmic intelligence increases as the student advances through each course.
Maharishi Academy has designed special charts that help the student integrate this new synergy. The lessons of each subject are presented in terms of the whole discipline and in terms of the student's own personal experience.
Again addressing the student directly, Maharishi Academy says, 'As the days, months, and years of your study progress, you become eminently versed in each modern discipline. At the same time, the unbounded nature of cosmic intelligence becomes fully integrated into your mind and body, and you begin to breath the totality of Natural Law.
'In this mature state, your mind swings with the same infinite intelligence that governs the entire universe without mistakes, from the galactic orbit of heavenly bodies to the minute detail of subatomic particles. And you can bring this universal intelligence to bear upon any subject of your choosing.'
Please visit the Academy's website for full details about this cutting-edge high school for boys, grades 9-12.
