Dear Parents and Students,
Welcome to Letterato, the world full of discoveries, where our students acquire new skills and knowledge through an unforgettable adventure.
We live in the age of technology where information is largely available and knowledge – much more accessible. At the same time, human intelligence has become more important than ever. The ability to think critically, determine the quality and reliability of information and rationalize key decisions whether it refers to personal life or issues of public importance, are traits that will be more and more valued as the technological breakthrough accelerates. The quality of education closely linked with innovation and creativity plays a key role for the well-being of countries across the globe, reflected in the competitiveness and quality of life at large. To address these issues we have established Letterato – Thinkers’ Academy with the key aim to assist students enlarge their knowledge, acquire critical, objectivity-based thinking and widen their horizon in the areas of creative approach to problem solving, reading and arts beyond the regular school hours.
Definitely, we observe incredible democratization of knowledge and accessibility of information, which is one of the greatest achievements of human civilization, but we also live in the era of superficial knowledge and ready-to-use answers to all questions we may have. This leads to intellectual laziness, which is an opposite of critical thinking. That is why low-quality or fake information is so vastly circulated and accepted in today’s world. People often do not question the authenticity whatever is presented to them. The idea of Letterato was born observing the need to help our young generation to reimagine the world they live in and start questioning in a positive, even philosophical sense. We are striving to equip them with logical reasoning and critical thinking skills, the ability to analyze a topic from different angles, apply creativity to any problem and elaborate on any subject objectively. The teaching curricula are designed in a way that respond to the requirements of modern reality that makes the learning process really dynamic and exciting for youngsters.
We introduce the students different cultures and help them to identify cross-cultural commonalities, as well as diversity and uniqueness of each civilization and culture with the aim to form a strong community around the Academy, through engaging its students, partners and peers in helping to cope, at least on a smaller scale, with one of biggest challenges of the country: young generation’s education and necessary skills to analyze, reason, communicate and collaboratively solve problems.
