Our 4 Pillars
As homeschool parents, we believe that our children should be trained in all aspects of life putting emphasis on growing their faith in God. While we can teach them essential academic subjects and the right sets of skills, we give credence to the truth that it is ultimately God who can lead them to a successful future.
Our SMART (Spirited, Motivated, Able to deal with failure, Respectful, and Trusting God) children learn good-natured habits and develop a passion for learning knowing that God is in control of their education.
The main goal of our program is mastery. Learning contents in every session are broken into clearly stated bite-sized lessons. Students are given enough exercise to practice the skills and are given gentle guidance in correcting their mistakes. These exercises make them actively participate in class activities because the level of satisfaction increases whenever they are given problems and questions with an increasing level of difficulty. The process teaches the kids to love learning and let them know what their minds’ are capable of.
In Sharp n’ Smart, we love to challenge our kids with problems that cover several academic skills with multisensory integration. The children become better learners when they are given time to pause, to think, to be curious, to keep an open mind, and solve the problems under pressure. We encourage them to ask questions, clarify explanations, sharpen arguments, and learn from their mistakes. These exercises will train our kids to become critical thinkers over time and will do better in solving everyday problems.
We focus on strengthening our students’ interpersonal relationship and communication skills by giving them time to openly discuss solutions, share their thoughts and emotions every session to help them gain new confidence. Oral reports and narrations, interview sessions, and drama presentations are some of the activities we give to our students to build connections with their classmates. These exercises teach the students to gently face their insecurities and discover their inner strength.
