Sports has always been my passion. Growing up in India, it was my dream to play basketball in the NBA. I was fortunate that I could play basketball through high school, representing Maharashtra at several national basketball championships and playing for India at the international level. This wasn’t easy – many friends and students I knew gave up competitive sports because it would compromise academic commitments in the higher grades. And for those who continued, it was a battle – juggling school, tuition classes, tests, exams, sports training, extracurricular activities and family commitments.

There are different paths to your destination. Choose your own path.

This underlying approach is what I love about Corvuss American Academy – that we get to offer students an exciting and different pathway to achieve their goals.

I was drawn in three years ago, when my husband and co-founder, Kunal Maria, shared his vision with me about developing a school for children who are passionate and talented in sports. What really appealed to me was the idea that children could pursue a high quality academic degree without having to drop sports once they reached grade 8 or 9 in school and then go on to seek pathways to college through a combination of sports and academics.
