Brilliant Minds Academy (BMA) is a humble homeschool with a big heart within the reach of the community for children with learning challenges, gifted kids, and differently abled children.

The homeschool is catered for children who have completed their relevant early years intervention program and therapies but are not ready to integrate into a public environment for academic learning when they are at the norm school age.   

At BMA, we are committed to supporting students with learning challenges. Students learn at their own pace, based on ability instead of age. Our classes are small for better teacher-student attention, and teachers are selected based on passion, kindness, and personal experiences secondary to academic qualifications.

Depending on student needs, especially those in primary years, where necessary, subjects are customized to meet their understanding level through’ visual and interactive learning. As we are an inclusion set-up, we embrace neurodiversity, and students here are taught that not everyone is “perfect” or the same, to be thankful for who we are and what we have, to show compassion, and to accept those who are less or different from us.

BMA is about going beyond academics; we inculcate discipline, good values, character building, and nurturing a conducive learning environment of care and love as part of holistic development. Feeling a sense of belonging and acceptance will eventually help the child build confidence and self-esteem, which are the cornerstones of their life journey.

Customized support

Where there are challenges, hopes arise, and BMA will be the connector in providing support for fostering holistic development and addressing students’ needs. Our staging class focuses on building essential skills in areas such as communication, social interaction, cognitive abilities, and motor skills to prepare them for school readiness.

Subjects and activities

On the academic side, we are focusing on the five core subjects which are good for entry into tertiary education.   For non-academic, activities such as art & creativity, physical education, drum circle, Sports Day, and Achievers’ Day help promote social interaction, problem-solving, and fostering positive relationships by engaging with peers. This helps to develop crucial social skills, such as communication, cooperation, and empathy, enabling them to form meaningful connections and lasting friendships that journey into adulthood.

Skill enhancement

Building essential living skills to equip the child by not preparing the road but by preparing the child for the road. Essential skills like maintaining a household, maintaining personal needs, staying safe, making friends and how to maintain a friendship, and money management.

Parents and family engagement

We emphasize the importance of collaboration with parents as a bridge back home for continuous support for the child’s needs after school hours. Parents-Teachers Meeting (PTM), providing feedback and guidance, resources, and customized support to better understand the child’s need for parents to actively participate in their progress. Not forgetting the important roles parents play in their children’s lives.

Our motto is that no child should be deprived of learning. Every child is gifted differently and deserves a champion. Someone who never gives up on them, who understands the power of connections, and who believes they can become the best version of themselves.                

BMA passion, coupled with our teachers’ dedication, shall make a difference in your child’s learning by tapping into their world of gifting and talents, for we believe that in every child lies a potential! For more information visit our Facebook page or drop us a Whatsapp at +6017-632 5982.
