Mr. Ratanshaw Sorabjee Luth had a vision of imparting education to students with love and care, providing every opportunity for an overall development. Backed by this very vision, the R. S. Luth Education Trust was established in 1978.
Currently, the trust is spearheaded by the young, dynamic Chairman, Ratan Luth. The basic goal of the trust is not only to make the beautiful years of a child’s schooling a joyous experience but also shape and build character along with producing responsible and well-rounded personalities. To further this goal, Fravashi Academy came into existence in 1982 . It is located on a 3 acre land in the heart of Nashik city. It has classes from prep to Std. XII, the medium of instruction being English.
Fravashi academy is ranked amongst the best premier centers of learning in Nashik. Also, it now holds the privilege of being the first school in North Maharashtra to have been awarded the ISO 9001-2000 certification for its quality management system.
The school also has the privilege of producing meritorious students in the ICSE Board every year. Fravashi Academy students have excelled in areas of sports, extra-curricular and co-curricular activities at the district, state and also the national level. Recently, Fravashi Academy has expanded to Higher Secondary too. Academic preparation, intellectual development and all rounded growth are central to the purpose of the academy.
Fravashi International Academy was founded by the R. S. Luth Education Trust, under the Chairmanship of the dynamic and visionary, Mr. Ratan Luth. The Trust, established in 1978, has been doing yeomen service in the field of education for close to three decades. The trust has pioneered premier centers of learning in Nashik; Fravashi Academy, a co-educational day school, being one of them.
'The wise follow their own path' as quoted by Aristotle is certainly true in case of Mr. Ratan Luth. At a very young age, he chalked out his own destiny and has been successfully forging ahead in all his endeavors.
Today, with his dynamic and innovative personality, Mr. Ratan Luth spearheads an era of unprecedented glory as the Chairman of R. S. Luth Education Trust. By creating a unique educational institution as Fravashi International Academy, Mr. Luth has proved that nothing is unachievable. His deep understanding and love for children, immense exposure to various fields along with a sound knowledge in the field of education has enabled him to create an educational culture that is unique and spell binding, all at once.
Donovan Bailey has rightly said,"Follow your passion, be prepared to work hard and sacrifice, and, above all, don't let anyone limit your dreams." No institution has its genesis in a vacuum and Fravashi International Academy is no such exception. It's a culmination of the power of a dream and a team. It is an extraordinary school, made so by a tradition of educational excellence that spans many years.
Whilst it may be true to say that Fravashi International Academy has its inception from a strong legacy and enjoys one of the most scenic and outstanding school settings, I believe our appeal as a school rests in our strong sense of community, the values we celebrate, our commitment to realising the potential of young students, and providing a balanced education that addresses the academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of our students' lives.
The best leaders are very often the best listeners. They have an open mind. They are not interested in having their own way but in finding the best way. As the Vice Chairperson of the R.S.Luth Education Trust, Nashik, currently Mrs. Sharvari Luth has been fully devoted to the educational field by being a forerunner along with the Chairman, Mr. Ratan Luth. She has also been an initiator and implementer of the various pre-primary section innovations in all the schools under the trust, right from designing of the curriculum, selection of teachers, teacher training and personality development, student counseling as well as parent counseling.
She has always been a strong pillar of professional and emotional support to the entire team of Fravashi International Academy and is a firm believer in the saying - "Great companies and teams are those that celebrate the differences. They seek harmony, not uniformity. They hire talent, not colour. They strive for oneness, not sameness." She has been a team builder, a very strong support, in incorporating a successful organizational culture at Fravashi International Academy.
Ms. Meghna Bakshi, the Managing Trustee of FIA, is a young, charming and multi-faceted personality, who plays a pivotal role in the smooth running of the institution.
She has been with Fravashi International Academy right from its inception. Her meticulous ways and superb management skills have been very instrumental in ensuring the smooth functioning of the academy.
"Teamwork has its own arithmetic. Combine two or more people with a common goal and suddenly one-plus-one is more than two." The team of Fravashi International Academy is a fine example of the same. In a disciplined working environment, a strong team is the greatest strength of FIA.
With our school now on the national and international map as a reputed day boarding and residential school in India, it is imperative to live up to the highly disciplined standards of academic administration. With the teaching and learning systems being upgraded even more, and with the absolute dedication and hard work by both the tutors and the students, FIA has reached greater heights of excellence.
Mr. Sachin Pathak, the trustee of R.S.Luth Education Trust is an expert in the finance and accounts field. With his calm and quiet demeanor and profound expertise, he heads the finance department of the school. With his sincere, dedicated and balanced approach, he is one of the strongest pillars of FIA.
Accountability can have a powerful practical value to achieving our goals and overcoming problems or issues. Being accountable takes a tremendous amount of character, courage and honesty. It definitely goes a long way in helping to create true and genuine personalities. The one who is a strong believer in accountability need not demand respect and trust, but he automatically and rightfully commands it.
At FIA, our entire team works together on this strong belief. The real winners in life are people who look at every situation with an expectation that they can make it better. At FIA, each team member works on the ultimate goal of the betterment of the students, the tutors and the support staff.
