St. Anthony’s School, Kurseong is affiliated to the Council for the Indian School Certificate Examinations (CISCE) which was established in 1958 by the University of Cambridge, Local Examinations Syndicate with the assistance of the Inter-State Board for Anglo-Indian Education. CISCE conducts the Indian Certificate of Secondary Education (ICSE) Examination at the end of class X and Indian School Certificate (ISC) Examination at the end of class XII. Academic Session starts from April every year and Class XI ends in November of that year.

St. Anthony’s School, Kurseong offers English, Nepali/Hindi/Bengali, Mathematics, Social Science, Science and Information Technology to the students of class X. At the 10+2 level, students may opt for one of these streams:
  • Science
  • Humanities
  • Commerce

English is the medium of instruction for all classes and students are expected to be engaged and interactive in their learning. Activity based learning is facilitated across all classes. Students are encouraged to think laterally and link the topics taught to their day to day experience. The school has extremely well qualified and committed academic staffs, whose members have exposure to educational systems and are trained in activity-based learning and teaching methods.

In addition, daily lesson planning, classroom performance and contribution to co-curricular activities are under constant supervision by the Headmaster and the Principal, who believe that the quality of teaching and learning must be of the highest order. The school is committed to staff development through orientation programmes and workshops, which cover not only academics and pedagogy, but also personal development and career counselling.

We have integrated the best from contemporary Indian pedagogical practices and have put in place an innovative, progressive and challenging academic framework.

The focus of the curriculum is to:
  • Ignite curiosity and nurture the desire to question
  • Cultivate the craft of reason and logic
  • Channel the power of memory into constructive forms without resorting to rote
  • Ability to summon knowledge, values and skills when needed in real life situations
  • Help children retain, for the rest of their lives, their innate and congenital thirst for knowledge
