-The first batch is only for ages 4 to 7 years. Please contact us if you are interested in other age groups as well.

Welcome to the Amar Chitra Katha Story Academy!

The ACK Story Academy is the premier creative learning programme from the House of Amar Chitra Katha.

At the ACK Story Academy we create Story Champions who can create, narrate and perform their own stories.

What is a Story Champion?

Story Champion are children, or adults, who are confident, creative and critical thinkers, have a good grasp over the use of language in many forms and imbibe the values required to be a change maker in this world.

They can create worlds from their minds, communicate with confidence and ease, narrate and perform stories or presentations like professionals.

Who can apply?

The ACK Story Academy is for children between the ages of 4 years to 16 years. We will be starting the programme with the 4 year to 6 year batch and then opening up the higher ages.

How do we do this?

The ACK Story Academy has been conceptualized to be a long term creative exploration and learning programme from modules that range from 3 months to 4 years.

We believe that no change is instantaneous and it requires time, nurturing, mentoring and strong peer groups. We have planned the programmes for just that.

With a combination of peer group sessions and 1 on 1 mentoring, each child will have a chance to achieve their creative potential over time.

Each module has certain goals with varying degrees, which allows for each child’s differing needs and learning styles.

The individual sessions in each module are about 60 minutes long, both for group sessions and 1 on 1 mentoring and there are offline activities that will be given to the children in preparation for the next session.

In the group sessions, we would be doing creative activities that require a group for nurturing, like storytellings, brainstorming, concept learning to name a few. While in the 1 on 1 mentoring, we would be talking to each child to understand their needs and adjust the instruction and course work to their pace. We would also be providing feedback in the 1 on 1 mentorship sessions and working on individual skills.

How many group sessions and how many mentorship sessions in every module?

A typical module would be for 3 months. Children can resignup for the next consecutive module or could signup for the next 3 modules.

In each module, we would have a total of 15 group sessions, 5 mentorship sessions, 2 rehersal sessions and 1 showcase. This would span over a 12 week period.

For the first 10 weeks, we would have 2 sessions a week as a combination of group and mentorship sessions. For week 11, we would have rehearsals and the final showcase for the parents. Once the showcase is done, the children will have a one week break from active learning before the next module starts. In this time, our tutors will be available for feedback as well as to talk to the parents about their child’s progress.

How many children per class?

We believe that group sessions, requires a sizeable group, but not too big, in order for a child’s individual progress to be monitored and nurtured.

We would allow for a maximum of 12 children in a single class.

Why the Amar Chitra Katha Story Academy?

India has a rich history and a special connection with stories for over 5000 years and Amar Chitra Katha has been the custodians for Indian Stories for more than five decades. At the ACK Story Academy, we believe that ‘Stories are at the root of everything, and no one tells stories like Amar Chitra Katha’. We are India’s Favourite Storytellers and now you can be one too..
