Our Philosophy and Mission
Bright Kids Academy is an independent, nonprofit day school that is ability based. We recognize the individual strengths and challenges of the children enrolled in our program. Thus, we do not group our students by age, as in other systems, but by their ability. When a child is ready to learn, we start them in our program, at whatever age they may be. Bright Kids utilizes a successful teaching method that introduces academic subjects on a gradient basis. As our students learn, we ensure that they “win” – 100% is the only passing grade at Bright Kids. We understand all children learn differently, and work with them on a one on one basis. Each success, each “win”, keeps our students interested and fosters a love of learning.
Our philosophy of education is simple. Students should master their basic tools very well––then learn to really use what they learn. Our teaching and study methods emphasize practical application––because only in meaningful use can one work out the proper value of the many pieces of knowledge encountered in an education. This approach keeps our students continually evaluating new information in relation to the real world. Their education becomes something they build and own, not something piled onto them. In the end, we want to see our students maintain their individuality, while being self-motivated, confident, active and purposeful individuals who are capable of pursuing and reaching their chosen goals.
We provide a safe, friendly and creative environment for learning. We are a secular school that welcomes children and families of all ethnicities and religious backgrounds.
