Programs Designed to Teach
Middle & High Schoolers the
Skills To Be Successful in Life!

Prepare Your Child for the Real World

The curricula schools use to teach our kids are outdated. They do not apply to the modern world. Our education system was designed for the industrial era. It was designed to teach our children how to be obedient, memorize, and speak only when spoken to.

In a world where we have information at our fingertips, where we need creative minds to keep up with the fast pace of change, where we need people who are not afraid to share their groundbreaking ideas, the school system is not changing fast enough. It is just not enough to guarantee that our children will have the best chances to succeed. More importantly, it’s not enough to teach our children how to feel truly fulfilled.

At Uncommon Education, our mission is to offer your child the supplemental education they need in order to not only succeed, but to experience true fulfillment. We want to give your child the tools to succeed at an early age, so they don’t need to work on discovering new ways of thinking later in life.

Research shows that there are nine proven factors that can accelerate success in your career and life:

  1. Education
  2. Skill
  3. Contacts
  4. Financial Literacy
  5. Good Work Habits
  6. Positive Mental Attitude
  7. Positive Image
  8. Creativity
  9. Character

Do not let your schooling interfere with your education
– Mark Twain

An Uncommon Approach

Out of the nine factors for success, school only covers education and sometimes, skill and contacts. Uncommon Education’s goal is to equip your child with all the other factors for success through our carefully designed courses that focus not only on lessons on emotional intelligence, self awareness, logic, financial literacy, entrepreneurship and other courses that are not normally offered in our schools , but also on teaching your child to question everything, to develop healthy habits, and to understand that success and happiness are subjective, that we are all different therefore our needs are not the same.

Uncommon Education is the education your child needs that is not being offered anywhere else.

Give your child the gift of success and fulfillment
