At NCPA, we believe that students cannot achieve academic and social excellence solely through studying textbooks, taking tests, and giving presentations in controlled environments. They need opportunities to take risks, apply their learning in new contexts and be challenged by unexpected, unpredictable situations. That’s why our dedicated faculty lead a special category of after school activities that we call showcase academics. These ASAs are associated with external organizations where students compete and perform in front of an external audience. Through our showcase academics, students are able to compete in robotics competitions at the national level, learn and perform with master musicians and artists, test their geopolitical wits against peers across Asia and the world, and more.
