In the four years since its founding, Zoho School for Advanced Study has shaped many passionate and talented students into software architects at Zoho.

The School for Advanced study serves as an Honours Program, allowing students who have the hunger and passion to develop breadth of knowledge in two fields, not just depth in one. This is akin to students doing a major and a minor in a standard baccalaureate program. 
The two fields can be any two fields from three (tech, business, and design).


We teach the essentials of Software Development - we teach robust programming languages like Java, Python, Swift, Kotlin, and also cutting-edge technologies like data science and machine learning.

We teach Mathematics - which focuses on Joyful Problem Solving rather than a bulky formulae. We teach English that is essential to communicate in a business environment and is also of immense use in expanding students' learning horizons. We also train in Communication and Soft Skills, the mastering of which helps in delivering outstanding presentations of ideas.

We equip our students with knowledge related to Algorithms and Data Structures: we explore innovations in the history of computational technology and learn how algorithms powered the evolution of Computer Science at each stage.

We have successfully trained students in domains such as Mobile Development (iOS and Android), Artificial Intelligence, Cyber Security and the aesthetics of UI/UX Design.


Students who aspire to enroll in the School for Advanced Study are expected to have

  • The requisite skills that would enable them to do well in any one of our three schools,

  • The interest and dedication to pursue a second field,

  • Good communication skills in English - the capability to understand (read/listen) as well as interpret (write/speak).         

Note that, students who enroll in the School for Advanced Studies must be willing to take on a load of extra core courses from another stream. Students will be taking classes in person, remotely via videoconference, and through recorded lessons. There is no other distinguishing factor between students of the School for Advanced Study and the other three schools; everything remains the same: the salary, benefits, class times, holiday schedule, and placement in teams. 

In fact, there will be no separate form for applying to the School for Advanced Studies. Simply apply to one of the three schools, showing an optional interest in one more school. If you have done exceptionally well in one of the school entrance tests, we will invite you to appear for the entrance of the other chosen stream.

Apart from the above-mentioned core skills, we expect students to be capable of self-learning, the one habit that will help them make the best of everyday opportunities in their career. 

"With great freedom comes great responsibility" -- we want our students to be responsible to utilize this great opportunity well.

All the Best!
