Cultivating Purpose Driven People
ChiXiao, The Founder of Curionesty School
Curionesty School is derived from Kiid School, one of our earlier projects focusing on playing games through summer and winter camps and weekend “cram” classes. From 2014 onwards we have accumulated hundreds of small curriculum units to “cram” what’s missing from the exam-oriented education: Film Shooting, Stop-Motion Animation, One-Person One-Story Theater, Homemade Catapults, Building a Real Bridge, etc. We've managed to hold more than a dozen camps, and we’re still planning to do more. Based on the contacts and relationships with teenagers developed during the Kiid School period, we started Curionesty, a full-time school, in September 2016. We are embracing the fifth semester of Curionesty this fall. Many of the Curionesty students who enrolled came from our winter and summer camps.
The main reason why we choose to focus on youth education is that we as co-founders share similar life experiences. We all encountered a lot of confusion during our adolescence, and found no salvation from the schools. We did not have supportive companions around, or good channels of communication with our parents. We were labeled as rebels as we wasted too much valuable time, and felt isolated. Thus we hoped to change this situation for adolescent children today, so that they have access to a nurturing and encoraging environment.
With a complete and original curriculum, and a stable team of core teachers, we influence our students in the best systematical way. Students may enter Curionesty once they turn 12. At the ages of 12-15, we focus on liberal education. On the general basis of liberal education, we then help students to discover themselves and explore their life mission. At the age of 16-18, students are given more time to explore in a more personalized way, allowing them to think and identify their destiny. After six years of study, an 18-year-old adult graduate from Curionesty will enter into another stage of his or her life, to either pursue higher education or plunge into a career path, with further supports from us. During these six years of study, our education enables students to master basic knowledge, to have an independent personality and clear judgment, to be able to make their own decisions and be responsible, and to ultimately find their own destiny, their true passion, and the courage to go after it.
We hold open classes on Saturdays. In the mornings we provide public elective classes for both the Curionesty students and the public, including Thanatology, Canon Reading, Finding Chengdu, Fine Food Testing, and Common Sense of Games. In the afternoons we organize public activities including reading clubs, football games, bicycle rallying, frisbee contests and more. These activities not only attract students from outside Curionesty School, but also influence them positively.
