The Preparatory program of Alma Mater has been on the educational scenario since 1980. Thousands of students have been successful in the Entrance – Tests during this long period. This is due to the carefully designed curriculum meeting the high standards of the Entrance–Tests’ preparation and the vast experience of its devoted teachers that Alma Mater has emerged as a true institution of learning dedicated to lay a strong academic foundation of the children.
Alma Mater offers rigorous preparatory programmes from K.G to Grade 1, K-I to K-3, K-2 to K-3 and K-3 to K-4. These programmes have been carefully designed according to the requirements of the Entrance–Tests of Aitchison College and Convent of Jesus and Mary.
The Preparatory Program complements or activity based pre-school program and takes its full swing from Grade 1. It strives to make children confident and creative builders of their future. The focus is on the whole child. We work toward an integrated curriculum that reaches across disciplines and age levels. The students are encouraged to meet academic challenges with openness, enthusiasm and willingness to solve problems.
Some of the salient features of the preparatory groups are:
i). Focused coverage of syllabus.
ii). Emphasis on important aspects of the syllabus.
iii). Development of Math Reasoning with the help of IXL Math software.
iv). Stress on English Reasoning with the help of computer activities.
v). Repeated revision of topics in smaller groups.
vi). Extensive rehearsals of Interview.
vii). Regular practice of all topics through carefully designed worksheets.
Thus, the, Preparatory Program is designed to prepare children for a successful entry into the reputed schools of Lahore especially Aitchison College and Convent.
Our philosophy is that Alma Mater should provide a foundation for later success and help to promote a positive attitude toward lifelong learning.
Alma Mater is a Preschool, Junior and senior school up to pre-cambridge, leading to yearly upgradation up to O-Levels in the coming years. The Preschool consists of Playgroup, Nursery and Kindergarten (K.G) whereas, the Junior and Senior School comprises of classes from Grade 1 to Pre Cambridge. The starting ages of the children are 2+. It was founded in 1980 by a group of enthusiastic educationists keen to give quality education to children. Dr. Ahsan-ul-Haq Rana and Dr. Jamila Rana, both the founders of the school, had done masters from Columbia University, U.S.A and were serving at key educational teaching posts at the time. They envisioned a Preschool with Dr. Maria Montessori’s Educational Methodology which would be the first step to lay a solid academic foundation for children equipping them to have an insatiable desire for learning throughout their lives. The curriculum and teaching methodology would finally lead the students of the Preschool to become confident learners and promising future building pillars of our society. Till today, Alma Mater has maintained its level of excellence and has in this long journey, produced thousands of students who are now serving in Pakistan and abroad to make this world a better place to live in.
