Promoting excellence for students and teachers in the area of their interest.

Excellence is based on a curve on discipline.

The Ancient Greeks had a concept of arete which meant an outstanding fitness for purpose. This occurs in the works of Aristotle and Homer.

Another related concept was eudaimonia which was the happiness which resulted from a life well-lived, being prosperous and fulfilled.

Studies have shown that the most important way to achieve excellent performance in fields such as sport, music, professions and scholarship is to practice. Achievement of excellence in such fields commonly requires approximately 10 years of dedication, comprising about 10,000 hours of effort
