High Achiever's Program

ADMISSIONS

OVERVIEW

Every year, a new class is selected to represent the world’s next generation of leaders — high-caliber individuals with open minds and limitless potential who will serve to deepen understanding between China and the rest of the world.

Through a rigorous selection process, The Knowledge Institute will   identify and select 20 high performing (10th percentile or B+ academic performance) high school students or recent high school graduates. A quarter of the cohort will be reserved for low-income students to be nominated by teachers and/or similar stakeholders.

 


The scholars will go through a twelve week-long program whose content will be divided into two parts- Grassroots and Dreams:


1. Grassroots: this will be made of the basics that students need to know to fully take advantage of the opportunities that exist.
Specific topics to be discussed are:

  • Self-awareness (identifying personal goals, career mapping)

  • The audacity to try - self belief, risk taking

  • Online and professional etiquette (email address, application processes)

  • Communication (interpersonal, written, spoken etc)

** Professional photoshoot - presentation of self
** Practice interview session
** Continuous self development

2.  Dreams: this will be focused on expanding scholars' frame of thinking in the ever-changing context of the world we live in.
