International Schools in Mumbai



Established under the umbrella of Aditya Birla Education Trust, Aditya Birla World Academy (ABWA) is one of the best international schools in Mumbai. As an international school having a global outlook, we acknowledge that the children of today need to be equipped with a mastery of different kinds of knowledge, abilities and skills like information literacy, tech-savviness, global awareness, etc. However, the world of today also requires a human touch. Hence, the school, while nurturing the innate potential of its students, also moulds them into passionate, committed, competent, sensitive, value-based individuals with leadership qualities.

In addition to the academic rigour, a key focus in the later years is to prepare students for the next stage of their lives. To this end, we believe that college counselling is a process and not a product. ABWA provides access to an independent team of counsellors who advise students on career choices as well as college applications. We begin career guidance as early as Grade 8 to help students follow their dreams and passions.

ABWA is the first choice as an international school in Mumbai for most parents as the well-being of our students is always our first priority. We believe that in order for learners to reach their full potential they need to feel safe, valued and respected in their learning environment. Thus, their pastoral care is at the centre of the school’s ethos. Our counselling approach is preventive as well as responsive. In order to maintain a space of continuous social-emotional learning, the team undertakes whole school activities such as Failure Week, Happiness Week and Global School Play Day. Our student-centric initiatives such as Anti-Bullying Squad, Mental Health Champions, Connect 101 Mentoring Programme and interactive workshops help enhance our learners’ Social, Emotional Learning skills and mindful behaviour. To further support student well-being, we run the Minds Matter Curriculum, which is grounded in the Four Quadrants of Positive Psychology, Social Psychology, Social Emotional Learning (SEL) and Mental Health Awareness. The school counsellors follow a time-tabled weekly session, across grades 1 to 12, to deliver the curriculum.

At ABWA our focus is to have our students involved in various events and activities. Students have participated in Theater, Speech, Drama, Dance, Yoga, Arts, Robotics and many more. This helps students in teamwork, collaboration, socialization & engagement.

Community services  

Engaging in community service, students are exposed to diverse experiences, perspectives, and cultures. This exposure broadens their understanding of the world and helps them develop a more inclusive mindset. They learn to appreciate and respect different backgrounds and perspectives, fostering tolerance and empathy. At ABWA, we have tie-up with NGOs and conducted several activities to help the society through our children.


Sports play a significant role not only in promoting a healthy lifestyle and physical fitness but also helps in teamwork, discipline, mental-well-being and leadership. At ABWA, we have tied-up for various sports facilities like Basketball, Football, Swimming, Tennis, Badminton, Cricket, Squash, Horse Riding and Athletics.
