Education for Integrating Life to enable evolutionary excellence

Our philosophy centers around Vision, Values, and Learning that become the roadmap in any kind of evolution towards excellence. When these are connected appropriately with clarity, conviction, innovation, focus, farsightedness, and alignment, the outcomes are quality, value addition, leadership, and evolution.


We empower the institutions by strengthening its fabric - weaving its purpose, its processes, and its minds, all the while adopting a child-centric approach. EFIL values Openness, Integrate Learning, Self-Governance, Credibility, Integrity, and Mutual Respect. EFIL seeks to create an Inclusive Learning Environment where all students feel respected and valued, promote Diversity, and encourage Personal Responsibility and Ethical Behaviour.

EFIL stands for Education for Integrating Life, derived by spelling LIFE backward!

Dr. Sampath & Dr. Kalpana founded Arpitha Associates ( three decades ago. Arpitha is a Center for Human Excellence that works with organizations around the world. When Sampath and Kalpana conducted workshops at various organizations, the participants often expressed the wish to have had the interventions when they were young. And this echoing need marked the birth of EFIL –the conviction to work with young minds and prepare them for life. Dr. Sampath, an Ashoka Fellow (, has dedicated his life to develop this school of thought that addresses every individual’s need to be on the exciting journey of excellence.
