CGIA | One of the best international schools in Calicut

Welcome to Common Grounds International Academy, a top school in Kozhikode where students thrive.

Our journey these last few years have brought us so much joy; the students we serve are a living testimony to what happens in a life when confidence and conviction are instilled through the investment of genuine encouragement, love and guidance. We hope that you will be as moved as we are as you navigate through and see what is being achieved in children here. Come and explore with us!

About Common Grounds International Academy

Common Grounds International Academy (CGIA) is widely considered to be one of the best schools in Kozhikode. Our teachers provide child centered education through one-on-one interactions in classes made up of 10-12 students. We emphasize transferable skills which means that our curriculum, lesson plans and examples relate to everyday life so that students understand why they are learning subject matter and how to apply their knowledge. In an environment that shapes high character, the kids grow to love learning at Common Grounds. We make instruction in Kerala fun, hands on and interactive.


“I enrolled my son Avyukt in CGIA at age 2 years and 2 months. My first (and until today) impression was the warmth that exuded from the faculty as well as the older children. In these 2 years, Avy has grown to be a bubbly, confident and a very inquisitive child. He has overall developed and learnt new things without any pressure on him. Thank you CGIA teachers and staff, for doing such a wonderful job.”

“CGIA is not a perfect school. The teachers are not perfect and the children are not perfect. They know this and this is what allows everyone at CGIA to learn and grow and develop.
As a parent, it is very heartening for me that a dialogue is always possible with the teachers and directors of the school. CGIA uses the parents as a helpful resource allowing for a partnership in the child’s best interest.
My older daughter finished year 8 at CGIA and then moved to Sadhbhavana. She has settled in very well both socially and academically.
It is a difficult task to allow the child the freedom to develop the desire to learn and observe. It is a lot easier to follow the syllabus (a word you don’t hear in CGIA at all!). I feel that both my daughters are now constantly hungry to learn more, know more. I am very happy that I am able to provide for my daughters a learning environment that all my friends and family living in big metros can only dream of. I wish the CGIA team (which includes parents also) all the best in their quest for imperfections.”

“I am more than satisfied and very thankful for your excellent support of my child. I recently had my first Parent Teacher Interaction at CGIA and I came out of the meeting without desperation but with lot of hope.”
