About Advanced Academic Programs

"We need more innovators, problem solvers, and highly skilled people to tackle the monumental challenges of the 21st;century." (TIME magazine)"The role of the teacher is to create the conditions for the invention rather that provide ready-made knowledge " (Seymour Papert ,&Mindstorms.)

Advanced Academic Programs offers enrichment programs for school age children in mathematics, physics, chemistry, robotics, programming and engineering, languages, music and art. We also offer Standardized Test (ACT, SAT, etc.) and Subject Test Preparation for High School Students.

The second decade of the 21st century brought about the realization that rapid and ever-accelerating technological progress will dramatically change human society and all aspects of our lives.
It is a terrifying prospect for parents: we know that our children will live in a very different world than ours, and we all want to know how to prepare our children to face challenges that do not yet exist.
Our mission at Roslyn Academic Programs is to guide both children and parents and help find answers to these questions.
We do not have a crystal ball and cannot predict the future. Precisely because of that we believe the focus of education must shift from teaching skills to teaching how to acquire and master these skills.
It is quite clear that robotics, computer science/artificial intelligence and mathematics will have an ever-increasing importance in the majority of future human professions, from taxi driving to jurisprudence to pharmaceutical research. Our curriculum is structured such that children first learn core principles, combined later with practical application of these principles. We teach children the ability to quickly and easily master new skills in problem solving, engineering, coding and design. We do not envision all of our students becoming scientists or technology professionals (though for those who choose this path, we have developed advanced courses); however, no matter what profession they choose, they will feel “at home” with the technology of the day – whatever it may be.
