About us

Welcome to SchoolNova at Stony Brook! SchoolNova is a specialized enrichment program that offers a diverse range of challenging and engaging courses to students onsite (campus of the Stony Brook University) and remotely (via ZOOM).

Our enrichment classes are led by highly educated researchers and teachers from both university and school levels who are passionate about their subjects. They present the material in a style that feels more like sharing knowledge rather than a conventional classroom setting. We encourage lively discussions, embrace questions, and promote exploration to stimulate curiosity and critical thinking.

We firmly believe that studying in small groups, rather than large, age-based classes, offers numerous benefits. It provides the necessary academic challenge and allows for a better alignment between students' learning abilities and the curriculum. Additionally, it creates opportunities for our students to interact with intellectual peers, fostering a sense of community and providing emotional support for high achievement.

For motivated students seeking a faster and deeper learning experience, we offer the opportunity to explore advanced and complex content in math and science subjects. We aim to challenge students and empower them with early access to advanced topics.

Recognizing the increasing importance of global connectivity, we believe that language proficiency is a vital skill. In our program, we offer the opportunity to start learning foreign languages, such as French, Spanish, Italian, and Russian, as early as six years of age. By providing language instruction, we aim to equip our students with the tools to communicate and engage effectively in an interconnected world.

Furthermore, we strongly emphasize the significance of early childhood education. We understand that the early years are crucial in a child's development, often referred to as the "absorbent mind" phase by educators. To support this critical period, we offer classes for children ages 3-5 in both English and Russian languages, providing a nurturing and stimulating environment for young learners.

At SchoolNova, we are dedicated to cultivating a love for learning, nurturing intellectual growth, and preparing students for future success. We invite you to join us on this educational journey, where passion, exploration, and individualized attention combine to create an exceptional learning experience.
