Academic focus and philosophy

Educational philosophy and approach to learning Our major assumptions are that no matter what difficulties students face in their homes, their achievement largely depends on us and that no kids are too different or too tough to teach. Students' geographies are not their destinies. Our program is built to provide motivated students in grades K-8 a well-rounded education, providing them the skills to succeed in extremely competitive high school programs and ultimately, college.
