The curriculum of Paavai Vidhyashram takes on a student-centered approach, whereby children are involved in the learning process. Teachers ignite curiosity and the desire to learn rather than routinely push ideas; a methodology that turns learning into a combination of class-room study, research and scientific innovation.

Language is taught the way it should be. First the sounds of the vowels followed by the consonants are introduced to make the children familiarized with English speaking sounds. The numbers are also introduced using the decimal system and the children will be introduced to all the four mathematical operations by the time he/she finishes his/her third grade.
