The founder of Sathya Sai School – Kisaju is Sri Sathya Sai Baba also known as “Swami” or “Baba”. Swami was born in Puttaparthi, near Bangalore in South India on 23rd November 1926. He has set up many schools, colleges, universities and hospitals throughout India.
He has founded schools all over the world with a unique philosophy of education. Swami’s educational program is called Education in Human Values (EHV). All Sathya Sai Schools aim to help each child develop their highest potential by instilling the five basic human values of Truth, Right Conduct, Peace, Love and Non-Violence. The purpose is to provide a balanced education with the goal of character development in addition to academic success.
The Sai educational institutions have been established not merely to enable students to earn a living but to make them acquire good traits, lead ideal lives, and give them ethical, moral and spiritual strength. I have established them with a view to inculcate love and teach good qualities to students. They will learn here humility, discipline and faith.
I have established these institutions to impart spiritual education as a main component and worldly education as a secondary one. Education should enable one to cultivate good qualities, character and devotion. The teaching of the university curricula is only the means employed for the end, namely, spiritual uplift, self-discovery and social service through love and detachment.Sri Sathya Sai Baba
