Summer Camp Brochure
Since 2001, the Knowledg-First Empowerment Center has been providing educational services, which augment the reasoning performances and maximizes the distinctive potential of all learners. We provide various opportunities to engage and contribute in higher level thinking activities and fashion our academic and enrichment components to inspire critical and divere thinking.
Throughout the learning cycle, we work collaboratively with our students to illustrate the relationship between the acquisition of knowledge and the personal relevancy of this information. Because of this attention to both subject matter and more importantly, to the learners themselves, they soon become self-directed in their thirst for knowledge.
Furthermore, understanding that education not only addresses the intellectual capacities, we also develop character, healthy lifestyles and proficiencies that lead to life-long resiliency.
Through our empowermental approach, Knowledge-First inspires learners to value the educational environment, themselves and the contributions of others. We believe, as did Plato, that the purpose and ultimate value of education is not to stick thoughts into the pupils' head, but to inspire them to think for themselves.
