Kumon Brings Young Innovators Together Under One Roof at 3rd Annual Student Conference

Students Beat Immeasurable Odds after Being Selected for Event Designed to Foster Critical Thinking and Creativity

June 13, 2019 // Franchising.com // RIDGEFIELD PARK, N.J. - Millions of students across the world have taken part in the Kumon Program since its founding over 60 years ago. This year, 56 accomplished students across North America defied incredible odds and were selected to attend this year’s Kumon Student Conference. The third annual event will take place in Chicago, Illinois on July 10th, and aims to bring together some of the brightest of our next generation of future leaders.

The day-long conference includes a series of unique activities designed to showcase many areas of the students’ intelligence. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn from each other through a variety of enjoyable learning activities designed to foster team building, group discussion, critical thinking, and creativity. In this unique learning environment, students will also hear from inspirational former Kumon Students who have completed the Kumon Program, some of whom are now successful professionals.

“Kumon’s founder, Toru Kumon, was firm in his belief that the most effective learning occurs with special attention to determine to each student’s ‘just-right’ level of ability and speed,” said Sung Park, vice president of materials development and instruction at Kumon North America, Inc. “We see proof of this every day as Kumon students advance into high level math and reading, regardless of their grade. This conference serves as a testament to Toru Kumon’s method, as we witness each of the selected students aspiring to reach their full potential.”

Over 75 percent of the students selected to attend the 2019 Kumon Student Conference have already studied advanced algebra and high-school level reading before the end of sixth grade, otherwise known as achieving “J by 6” in the Kumon Math Program and Kumon Reading Program. This speaks to Kumon’s goal of helping children study well beyond grade level.

The invited students’ dedication to unlocking their full potential shows, and not only inside of the classroom. Outside of their studies, their lists of extracurricular achievements are a sight to behold.
