The Inventure Academy Admission Process is simple and transparent. It works on the belief that a personal interaction between parents/authorized guardians, the prospective student and the school’s authorized representatives is of far greater value than any conventional admission test. The process is aimed at giving the faculty an insight into the type of education approach and environment parents believe would be appropriate for their child to maximize his/her potential, while giving a glimpse of the child’s strengths, learning needs and potential. It also provides the parents/authorized guardians a first-hand opportunity to obtain an understanding of how students and faculty engage with each other at the academy, their overall offering, curricula and educational approach.
The admission process begins in September of the previous calendar year. Admissions are granted on a first come first served basis for seats that are available.
Admission enquiries may be made by filling the enquiry form or directly contacting the admission centre. Once the school receives the inquiry, a member of the school’s community relations management (CRM) team will call/email the parents to take their enquiry forward. Parents and students based in Bangalore may visit the school by an appointment for a tour of the spacious, green, child friendly, safe campus, and an interaction with the CRM team.
Inventure Academy is one of the three select schools in Bangalore to be part of Round Square, a not-for-profit network of schools in 40 countries across five continents, that share a passion for experiential learning built around six ideals of learning: democracy, environmentalism, adventure, leadership, and service.

It was titled one of the Future 50 Best Schools in India by Univariety, 2017.
