Message From MPA

Sat Nam Kirandeep,

As we announced last month, admissions for our Day School are now open! We have been an international boarding school since 1996, but in 2023 with the opening of our Day School, we look forward to sharing the MPA spirit with the people of Amritsar.

Life at MPA is unique. Part of preparing for this new chapter includes communicating our values, ethics, and guiding principles. One way that we’re doing this is by creating a prospectus. The prospectus is an opportunity for us to explain to students, parents, and the community what our day school is about. It helps us showcase our commitment to academic learning as well as Kundalini yoga and a Sikh lifestyle.

The prospectus is available here. We hope it provides a deeper understanding of the well-rounded life at Miri Piri Academy.

In other news, we are continuing preparations for the three events to be hosted at our campus later this year and early next. Thank you to everyone who has reached out, inquired, and registered. We look forward to spending quality time together with you.


Japjeet Kaur Khalsa, Head of School

“How we learn and work,”Inspired by Guru Nanak
