Educational Philosophy

Our educational philosophy is grounded in the belief that students connected to a larger matrix of knowledge have a greater chance of success. They can meet and rub shoulders with more people from diverse fields and backgrounds and have more opportunities in a competitive job market. This is why the name of our school became Matrix Academy.

Incremental & Systematic Approach to Learning

We offer an effective incremental approach to education, under which previously taught concepts are reviewed on a regular basis to promote a better understanding of more complex concepts. We believe repetition is the key to a deeper understanding of the subject matter and we see students of all levels flourish under this technique. We also believe in a systematic approach to studies and adhere to Susan Wise Bauer's doctrine that "the mind must be first supplied with facts and images, then given the logical tools for organizing of facts, and finally equipped to express conclusions" (from her website https://welltrainedmind.com/a/classical-education/)

 

 

 

Our Mission

At Matrix Academy, we believe that scientific research must always be guided by a sense of responsibility and prudence. In light of this, we try to cultivate certain principles in our students: diligence, leadership, and perseverance.

Due diligence implies that students are encouraged to do their best, without overtaxing themselves, losing sleep or damaging their health. So, there must be a balance between active learning and passive learning. Diligence must be tempered by self-discipline and self-control.

Responsible leadership requires that students be taught to develop leadership abilities with the necessary virtues that go with them. We wish to see our young people have a as smooth a transition as possible from childhood to teenage, teenage to adolescence and adolescence to adulthood.

As for perseverance, we will cultivate in our students a sense of resolve and determination toward study and extracurricular activities. Students can be encouraged to be eager, earnest and even competitive provided there is a sense of good sportsmanship instilled in our approach to healthy competition.
