We adapt the US Common Core Standard and the teaching methodologies of Project-based Learning (PBL) and Inquiry-based Learning (IBL) in designing our programs. Our aim is to provide our students opportunities in, not only learning the Academic English, but also acquiring the soft-skills of critical thinking, collaboration, communication, problem solving and creativity to foster their “Learning-to-Learn” ability. This ability is crucial for our students to timely adapt and enhance their own capacity in this constantly changing 21st century.
We devote our effort, time and wisdom to help our K to Grade 12 students in China to foster a solid foundation of academic English abilities as well as “Soft Skills” to become forever learners.
Students are the centre of Athena; therefore Athena considers the learning environment and facilities, teaching context and methodologies, as well as the quality of native-English speaking teachers and staff in creating an enjoyable learning atmosphere for students. Each Athena academy is so designed with a Multi-media Library, Maker Space function room and Interactive Classrooms to ignite students’ passion in learning. One of the Athena teaching philosophies is to allow students to make mistakes and learn from mistakes. Accept the mistake made and learn from it is an important learning process and also an essential element in acquiring knowledge. This philosophy is deeply immersed in each of Athena innovative programs, and so our experienced native-English speaking teachers are not only a teacher but more as a facilitator, guidance, inspiratory, coach and buddy.
