About the Academy:
The Academy: Established in 2015, the academy is AMERICAN owned and operated. The owner is also an educator and teaches classes directly, so the various perspectives and concerns of students, teachers, and parents are understood. The teachers are all professionals with either degrees in Education or 10+ years of teaching. The Academy always has a huge waiting list of students and only opens new classes once capable teachers are found.
Curriculum / Teaching: The academy does not use a standard/typical KOREAN curriculum. The curriculum has been developed by the teachers over the past 5 years and has been proven to be effective and reliable. The teachers that have developed this curriculum have years of experience working at some of the top name brand academies, and have sought to improve upon or fill in missing areas of those curriculums.
Some of the best students in the province come from the academy and the academy is on track to become an officially recognized TOSEL (National Test) Honorary Academy, due to their student’s success. When the students speak or give presentations, nothing is memorized and rehearsed. All students at the speaking level are truly able to speak. On averages students are at the Emergent Language level within 2years. Students that study at the academy have gone overseas and were accepted into their respective grade levels without the need for additional ESL help.
Teachers are given freedom in their class curriculum and direction, and the academy has several core “modules” that the teachers can utilize to teach their classes. The “modules” are typically fun game-based classes that are effective and educational.
