Did you know?
On our annual Academic Achievers tour, the cream of South Africa’s learners visit top universities and attend life enriching lectures on various subject matters presented by thought leaders in their respective fields. In October 2018, over 350 qualifying bright minds from across South Africa embarked on a unique adventure to the United States of America.
The group visited and attended lectures at Harvard, Yale, University of Columbia, Princeton University etc. and attended lectures on cancer research, astrophysics, internet marketing and others. The unique exposure the learners gain cannot be replicated at any time in their lives, and they return with exuberance and a new view of the world outside and the opportunities that exist.
Can you try and imagine what impact this tour makes on the young brilliant minds, walking the corridors of the place where some the world’s greatest figures found their foundation? Names like Obama, Roosevelt, Gates and many others come to mind.
When else, ever, would such a select group get a platform to share this experience with their intellectual equals in a well organised and supervised group? The group interaction and the forming of new bonds between piers are just some of the unique advantages of the Academic Achievers tour.
