CAMBRIDGE PRIMARY & SECONDARY PROGRAMMES AT LUMIERE ACADEMY HOMESCHOOL LEARNING CENTRE
Cambridge programmes at Lumiere Academy encourage each student to develop his or her higher order thinking skills while mastering subjects in depth with the development skills for both academic excellence and practical lifeskills. We place heavy emphasis on conceptual understanding as well as practical work that help Lumiere students make links between different aspects of a subject. Some of the higher order thinking skills cultivated here are problem solving, critical thinking, independent experimentation, collaboration and fact-based presentation. We believe all these skills are transferable skills that will impact the students for a lifetime. Lumiere students have found their joy of learning at Lumiere Academy.
We believe that the learning process has a Trinitarian relationship; like a three-legged stool whereby it is hard to function without one leg. Therefore, we encourage a vibrant parent community to continuously support and contribute to the centre in order to forge strong students' growth both academically and socially.
Parents are given an open platform to communicate with both management and teachers. Various events will be held to provide opportunities for students, parents and teachers to collaborate towards one vision or objective.
Students and parents will be given the opportunity to sit down with teachers every term in order to discuss the student's learning process and how better growth can be facilitated for every individual. We desire parents voice to be heard as a mean of constructive growth for the centre to benefit the students.
