Dr. A.K. Fazlani, Chairman
A pioneer businessman and philanthropist, Dr. Fazlani, awarded a Ph D in international business by Asbury University, USA, started a modest family business in tobacco and related products in 1971, which was developed into one of the largest tobacco export companies of India. In 1980, he promoted the Fazlani Foundation which has since registered nine charitable trusts focused upon education and health. In 2007, he promoted the state-of-the-art Fazlani L’acadamie Globale to provide students in the Mazgaon neighbourhood internationally benchmarked school education. “I believe the goal of life’s journey is not to arrive, but to keep pressing onward,” he says.
FLAG’s campus is designed to facilitate experiential and collaborative learning. The school’s five-storied building with a built-up area of 28,035 sq. ft features 30 student-friendly classrooms, art and music rooms, three science laboratories, and several designated spaces for co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

“At Fazlani L’ Academie Globale, I have learnt to overcome my inhibitions, and become expressive and confident. The excellent faculty ensures that the academic programme is delivered in an engaging and challenging manner to aid our learning and understanding.” – Aisha Tinwala, class XII
“I distinctly remember my first day at FLAG — I was a shy, quiet and reserved student. Pushing me out of my comfort zone, and by encouraging me to try out new things, the school’s faculty has helped me grow into a confident and responsible individual. Opportunities such as being on the school’s newsletter editorial board and the Annual Day organising team enabled me to develop my communication and teamwork skills.” – Ambreen Shaikh, class XI
Class I student Vedant Mistry won two gold and one silver medals in the Under-5 category in the 10th National Sendo Ryu Karate Tournament, 2015.
