What is BCG

With a rich history in education spanning 30 years, the Bombay Cambridge Gurukul schools have sent out more than 20,000 students who continue to do us proud. We have had more than 2,000 teachers work with us, some of whom, enriched by their experience, hold important posts in Education and carry forward the BCG legacy.

During this journey, BCG has made significant contributions to prestigious institutions such as UNICEF, Maharashtra government, TISS, Mumbai University, SNDT, and several schools and colleges across the country.

We have been forerunners for student-sensitive education, and introduced concepts which are now being applied in schools across the state and parts of the country. Some of these concepts include: no examinations and competitions till the age of 10; computer education; worksheets; counseling and remedial facilities; 100% participation; HRD in Education; etc.

Our students are a testimony to our success!

“BCG is a philosophy, an idea. It aims to integrate all of human knowledge to create an environment that builds future generation.”

Why Cambridge?

Over the years, much research has been done on education. Teaching has been the subject of interest for scientists, educators, psychologists, industrialists, politicians, artists, writers – almost every field – since education is the base of all disciplines.

‘Cambridge’, in Bombay Cambridge Gurukul, is an acknowledgement of the logical, rational, and scientific nature of education.

The Universe is in complete order. All things in Nature follow the laws of the Universe without exception. Man, on the other hand, has defied and defiled all laws of Nature, to the extent of destroying the Earth and its resources and itself.

Education has the responsibility to restore this disorder, and provide for students an environment that helps them be rational, resourceful, and responsible.

Why Gurukul?

Ancient Indian education has been studied by experts all over the world. And all our ancient texts contain the wisdom of the process of learning. Education has been linked by all saints and wise men as being the road to the ultimate goal of life, which is liberation, complete freedom from self.

The ‘Gurukul’ in Bombay Cambridge Gurukul, is an acknowledgement to the value of this wisdom. Sa vidya ya vimukte.

Ultimately, the fate of humanity rests on our awareness of how the relationships between humans affect the relationship of mankind with the universe. The values of compassion, cooperation, creativity and generosity, reflect courage and confidence are central to the Gurukul philosophy. All humans are one, and if we were to understand that, we would have the sensitivity to be kinder, more generous, and more forgiving.

    Wonderful vision of the school. There r very few schools with this vision. There was a time when education as a faculty was the most respectable. Time has come to gain back the lost glory. Someone has to be an example.
