The Foundation of Future STRONG Academy:
Future STRONG Academy is an SECD, Social and Emotional Learning and Character Development, intervention program where we teach our children secrets of high performers.
Further, all our initiatives, especially the ones for middle and high school children are designed to make our future adults college, career and life ready. Our after school workshops lay the foundation for qualities like grit, self control and problem solving in our children. And, we show them that as our world moves towards humans making decisions using algorithms and machine coding, there is a greater need to develop the minds of our children by increasing their interest in learning and free thinking.
Our learning modules promote good manners and develop a child’s character and show them that instead of just sleep walking through life, we can all live intentionally each day and become contributing citizens of our collective future.
Here are the pillars of our learning objectives at Future STRONG.
