Our program is based on the premise that young children are capable of learning matters that are needlessly delayed to a later age. When academic subjects are simplified, children learn easily. Learning to think is the most important component of early education. The Institute program entices children to think by engaging them in activities designed specifically to the task. In this way children secure the rare qualities distinguishing those who lead from those who follow: a minute attention to detail, a heightened ability to concentrate, and confidence to face – and triumph over – tasks that would defeat others.
How do we raise intelligence? We do this by including, at all levels of our curriculum, elements and activities that promote the use of the mind.
