WE FOCUS ON GROWING ABILITY INSTEAD OF CHAMPIONING "TALENT."
Talent is often defined as an innate gift magically bestowed only upon a select few people at random. It's seen as something a person is "just born with," or as some mystical quality that some people magically "have" and others just don't. Or sometimes it's even made out to be a genetic disposition!
But we see things a little differently; to us,'talent' is a myth. We know from experience that those often labeled as "talented" are simply individuals who have dedicated a lot of time and effort to developing their interests and skills, or to pursuing a passion, either with guidance or independently.
This is why we don't label or categorize students according to ideas of 'talent.' Instead, we've created an individualized educational program that helps every student access rigor, unlock their passions, find and grow their unique abilities, and identify and develop their skills in our core disciplines and throughout our program.
We believe grit, determination, enthusiasm, and curiosity can beat outdated notions of 'talent' any day!
