 A Specialized Academic Enrichment Program

Junior Scholar, which is the first stage of Legend’s Scholar Program, is a specialized academic enrichment program with a focus of delivering academic results through engaging lessons and interactive teaching methods, conducted by supportive teachers.  It starts with an engaging curriculum that stimulates students’ intellectual curiosity.   To broaden their knowledge base and make learning enjoyable, varieties of high interest topics in the areas of children literature, science, and social studies are included to enrich the curriculum of Reading, Writing, and Math.

While retention of information is important, it is essential for students to learn applications.  This can only be achieved through active learning, such as discussions, team projects, and hands-on activities.  It is also our belief that students’ academic capacity should be developed to the fullest. JSP offers the academic vitality to stimulate intellectual curiosity and empower him/her to move full steam ahead. 

  Competitive Edge Track Leadership Track
Who should attend? Students who are independent learners with executive functions at developmentally appropriate level are good candidates.  Children who enjoy intellectual stimulations and seek to excel academically would benefit tremendously. This is designed for students who are motivated learners with solid academic foundation and time-management skill.  Successful candidates are those who excel academically, cope well with academic vigor, and enjoy intellectual interactions with like-minded peers.
