  • In the early days, stories were the way we exchanged information about

    ourselves.

  • The answer to truth is understanding

    your world and zeitgeist beyond your

    time.

  • And what keeps the flame of knowing and learning alive is literacy. In todays

    terms, its a network to knowledge.

    Knowledge of self

    Knowledge of others

    Knowledge of the world

  • In any subject from math to science, from economics to literature the

    better able you are to understand, the

    more you can learn and grow.

  • Literacy is a process of interaction between the self and text.

    Literacy is a powerful vehicle for the

    development of critical thinking and

    communication.

    Without thought, analysis, and

    communication, there is a breakdown

    of understanding.

    Literacy cures that fatal ailment.

  • We are committed to better helping

    people understand themselves in their

    time.

  • Making meaning it is the essence of

    learning.

  • We believe that our contribution to unlocking our collectively brighter

    future lies with the application of our

    deep understanding of how learning

    happens and how the mind

    develops.

    It exists where the science of learning

    meets the art of teaching.
