Academy information:

Founded in 2013 as a Christian educational institution, the academy has adopted an American curriculum in order to provide the best private tutoring to the kids in its tight community. The teachers pay great attention to providing a creative, comfortable study atmosphere for the students and addressing all the needs of their parents. Academy instructors teach English through a variety of general subjects, sports, and games. On the basis of the K12 curriculum, the academy offers its kids a complex and rounded educational program with math, science, social sciences, physical education, music and art classes to help them develop as strong individuals and future leaders.

Located in the upscale area of Gogiri Valley (West Bundang) in the suburbs of Seoul, the academy offers high-quality English education to the residents of the villas on the slopes of the beautiful Gwanggyosan Mountain.

The academy prepares elementary to high school students for international exchange programs and education abroad. Familiarizing Korean students with the USA-style school system, the academy gives its teachers the creative freedom to make their own curriculum to best suit the needs of their children. Each class has around 5-10 students, and the academy strongly encourages free debate, topic presentation, and independent material analysis.
