words "Kum Sung" have become a household
name in Ocean County. We run a family business that has been educating youngsters,
adults and families successfully for over a third of a century. We feel
that a genuine commitment to education is what has contributed to our success
The "Kum Sung" philosophy is the Korean philosophy of sincerity and respect. If these qualities are built into a child's life, they will become part of their personality. Sung Star Academy will educate all children to be successful and strive for their personal best. The curriculum will embellish individual developmental levels and guide children socially, emotionally and academically.
"Together with our families we build parenting into our daily schedule. It is done without the intent of replacing parents and is accomplished through effective communication. This is one of the many ways we meet your child's individual needs."
"With an abundance of love and attention, we believe that each child should have the opportunity for his or her 'personal star' to rise." At Sung Star Academy we strive to accomplish this.
"Your Kids are our Kids too!"
Sung Star’s curriculum has been designed by blending the very best of educational theories. Much time has been spent researching the most current and reputable curricula making it unique for Sung Star Academy. We have created our curriculum based on educational masters that focus on multi sensory teachings, child centered philosophies, and creative experiences.
With a Korean philosophy in mind, the driving force is to focus on age appropriate child development and the teaching of patience, building self-esteem, truth, honor, and respect for self and others. In doing so we are praising children and assisting them to make good choices. We have found that this approach creates positive behavior. The use of continuous re-direction is what guides youngsters to make correct and positive choices.
We recognize that all children possess a natural curiosity. This allows a child to develop as a complete, well rounded individual. One of the many program priorities is the development of a positive self-concept. In our stimulating and secure atmosphere, our children are guided through daily activities that encourage critical thinking, reasoning, and evaluating the world around them. This global educational approach provides opportunities, experiences, exploration, and exposure for all age children to have the opportunity to be successful.
Through active parent participation, our program extends beyond our classrooms and into the home. It reaches the child’s first and only consistent teacher: the parents! Our philosophy includes our families in the education process as well as in the classrooms.
