FutureSTRONG Academy – A global initiative to grow happy, industrious and resilient children in a world where distractions are just a swipe away.
What Is FutureSTRONG Academy?
Our children will one day face the real world without our support. High GPAs alone are not a guarantee for a successful career or a happy life. As caring adults, we must give them tools for time and focus management and critical thinking.
At FutureSTRONG Academy, we see ourselves as advocates for bringing social, emotional and character development to families, schools and communities. We teach children DECISION making, GOAL setting and problem SOLVING – capabilities that will turn them into resilient, successful and happy adults.
That’s our mission – To raise children to respect themselves, their time and their capabilities in a world where distractions are just a click or swipe away.

Why Do Children Need These Skills?
Our children need more than academics to become great professionals. Employability skills like collaboration, team work and negotiation will help them shine in college, career and real life. Having a great attitude, a confident communication style and a value system can enable them to live up to their complete potential.

Impact of Character Education Programs
“One’s attitude, degree of motivation, and people skills constitute eighty-five percent of the reasons people get ahead and stay ahead. When a student comes to class with a positive outlook and an attitude that he can accomplish anything, then anything can be accomplished.”
