About GEMS

Trusted for over 60 years and now a third generation education family, GEMS Education began in a single school room in Dubai. Today, we have the privilege of educating over 170,000 students from over 176 countries through GEMS owned and managed schools globally; over 270,000 students access resources through our services division.

About the School

Nestled in 8.3 acres of lush greenery, GEMS Modern Academy, Kochi is a new and quickly growing International school providing a world class education supported by outstanding facilities. We currently have 430 students from Pre KG to Grade 9 and will be opening for Grade 10 and 11 next academic year.

We offer exciting opportunities with our International curriculum, IB PYP in KG and Primary leading to IGCSE and A levels in the Senior School, in highly stimulating learning environments with the best of international practices, all underpinned by the GEMS Core Values.

Set on a magnificent estuary, serene Kochi has been drawing traders, explorers and travellers to its shores for over 600 years. Recently featured in the Lonely Planet as one of the Top 10 cities in the world to visit in 2020, nowhere else in India could you find such an intriguing mix: giant Chinese fishing nets, a 450-year-old synagogue, ancient mosques, Portuguese- and Dutch-era houses and the crumbling remains of the British Raj. The result is an unlikely blend of medieval Portugal and Holland and an English village grafted onto the tropical Malabar Coast.
