LK Academy Team

How It All Started

LK Academy started when we saw the need to reach out to older students and to guide them to their fullest potential, with motivation and confidence as the biggest driving factor in their learning.

It started as LoveKids Speech and Drama in 2004, with the core programme being Speech and Drama for children. LoveKids has helped many children as young as Pre-Nursery gain self-confidence, and still continues to do so.

Why Evolve

As our students grew with us, there was a need and desire for students to learn exam-oriented English in an inspirational setting, with motivation and confidence driving the programme.

Our students grew with us from Speech and Drama, to Speech and Drama with Creative Writing.

Shortly after, we enriched our classes with the MOE syllabus, and our Confidence for English and Confidence for PSLE programmes were born. Through those programmes over the years, LoveKids has guided the Primary level students towards SA2 and has groomed students throughout their primary school journey for PSLE. Many of our P6s have attained As and A Stars for English PSLE.

What Inspired Us to Expand to Math and Science

The desire for Math and Science programmes driven by the same core components as the English Programme (motivation and confidence) has also been a desire of many of our students. Our Math and Science specialists have been guiding students toward SA2 and PSLE in our specially curated Student Care Programme. We thus decided to branch out to weekly classes to help more students with this same desire!

Why LK Academy

LK Academy was then formed to meet the needs of our Primary level and Secondary level students, and to enrich them with the academic requirements of school.

Math and Science in Primary School requires skills which have to be attained through mastery of the English language. After which, Secondary level Math, Science and English are prerequisites required at a deeper level.
