SHMD Academy


Here, students can quickly improve their performance at school, ignite their passion for learning, and greatly improve the five core skills (deep learning, ability to execute quickly, communication, teamwork, and leadership)

SHMD  Academy's  Philosophies

Creative Methods for Education

Asian students often have low communication skills, leadership, and social influence. The benefits of standardized test scores are increasingly ignored. In the United States, the top schools are gradually harder to attend and the future of employment for Asian students is worrying. It is precisely for this dilemma that SHMD Academy has designed an efficient and innovative education system. Here, students will gain a learning opportunity that is centered on practicality and benefits. At SHMD Academy, we will make it easier to attend top colleges and universities in the US.

Ignite learning

The traditional teaching systems utilized in the US are not only inefficient and boring but have no harm to the long-term development of students. At SHMD Academy, we advocate happy and effective learning. After many years of research, we have developed a highly interactive and popular education method. At SHMD Academy, students will be more interested in learning, and parents will have an easier time. Ignite the motivation of learning, and students will develop a good habit of lifelong learning.

 

 

Boost Self-Confidence


At SHMD Academy, the steps of learning and applying knowledge are seamlessly connected. At the same time, the curriculum developed by SHMD Academy experts enables young people to successfully transition from the role of student to teacher. Here, each student will complete the whole process of deep learning: “passive absorption – interrogative understanding – creative application – active teaching”. Students, as a result, become more confident and sociable.

 

Improve the Overall Ability of the Five Core Skills

SHMD Academy's students can fully enhance their five major abilities while improving their academic performance: deep learning, execution, communication, teamwork, and leadership. In SHMD Academy's classrooms, students are the master, project manager, and motivation. We have completely gotten rid of the traditional classroom where "teachers are endlessly talking, and students are sleepy." After studying at SHMD Academy for some time, students often take action to increase the amount of learning and increase the difficulty of projects that they undertake. And everything is attributed to the five major skills training. Here, parents are completely relieved of the control over a child's learning, which is instead given to the child.

Customized Teaching

SHMD believes that every child is different, and as long as everyone teaches, every child will succeed. Therefore, children here have access to teaching services that are only available in private schools. The teachers will regularly check on the progress of students and keep in touch with the parents to ensure that the students' potentials are discovered as early as possible. Parents will be familiar with the development of students throughout the process.

SHMD Academy's Curriculum

Chinese

After four or five years of study at a traditional Chinese school, students generally lose interest. The overall improvement is very limited and parents lose confidence. At SHMD Academy, children will be interested in Chinese for more than just a few years. The efficiency of learning Chinese here is more than five times that of traditional Chinese schools. Most children are able to pass Chinese exams in two or three years! With such achievements, this is because we have a complete set of innovative teaching systems including teaching materials, teachers, teaching methods, private custom teaching management systems and so on. At SHMD Academy, it is not just teachers who train children, but a team of educational experts. They have love, ability, and are extraordinary!

English

SHMD Academy has the best and most innovative team of English teachers in North America.  Here, the students will learn English with a passion. Our leading English teacher is a key teacher at a private school in Atlanta. He is young and full of teaching experience and innovative consciousness. He is very good at igniting children's enthusiasm for learning English and is very popular among students. Another one of our teachers has been teaching in East Asia and has extensive experience in ESL teaching. She has a deep understanding of the special challenges faced by Chinese children in school and can quickly get their children's interest. SHMD Academy uses a unique and interesting method of education to combine daily English teaching with expression, debate, and leadership. Students can quickly improve communication, speaking, debate, and leadership while quickly improving their everyday English skills.

Mathematics

Mathematics is one of SHMD Academy's most distinctive classes. SHMD Academy's mathematics is the exclusive user of the Areteem mathematics system in North America. Areteem is one of the most famous mathematics training institutions in the United States. In the past few years, many members of the American Mathematics Olympiad team were students of Areteem. SHMD Academy's mathematics program adopts a targeted and customized learning program to truly teach students by their aptitude. Communication with parents to keep them informed about the situation of the students is done whenever possible. Make full use of the resources and platforms of Areteem and SHMD at home and abroad, and also have children participate in various mathematics competitions and various follow-up high-end projects (programming, robotics, software development projects, etc.) while learning mathematics, and exercise in practice. This is not only helpful in applying for a good university but also helpful for the development of a child's character and the growth of their mind.

Fencing

It is not just the intellect that SHMD Academy wants to cultivate, but also developing social skills. Cultivating talents need to be developed with other skills as well. What's more, in the United States, sports training and specialties are crucial! SHMD Academy's founders have more than a decade of leadership training experience in China and the United States. In the training of various people for many years, they found that there is no more influence possible than with physical education to develop children's leadership influence, especially in the cultivation of tenacious will, indomitable spirit, and the fighting style of repeatedly trying! In the United States in recent years, the popularity of the term "GRIT" fully demonstrates the importance of quality training in this area. In all sports, the sport that is most suitable for Asians, especially Chinese children, is fencing.
