Catalyst Quest

Catalyst Mind Center is a place where we believe and encourage in thinking outside the box.

Quest Talented Youth programs are for bright and curious children, where they can get together with their peers and learn beyond their daily learning, explore more in depth the topics of their interest, and accelerate their learning in fun and exciting methods. Our center nurtures a development-oriented attitude by providing interactive, projects-based, and stimulating learning experiences.

about the program

Our talented and advanced youth programs, where we believe that just like the sky has no limits – learning should not have limits. Our group classes are based on child-led interest programs. Grouped by learning achievements and goals, they are small classes with a maximum of 5 to 6 individuals in each – just enough to enable constructive and active learning chances for all learners while allowing each learner to participate and take an active role in their learning.

Admission

Admission to Children’s Quest programs is based on a brief interview with both the child and parents.

Through our interview process, we assess your child’s ability to work collaboratively with others in their group, their enthusiasm for learning, and their passion and aptitude for teamwork.

Shahin’s Bookclub

Shahin’s book club is a social, interactive learner-led classroom. This group class is named after the young Author Shahin Sadath, who published the book Adventures of EZZA the Rover in Space, due to his passion and support for reading and educating others. The purpose of Shahin’s book club is to enhance our children’s passion for reading, comprehension, and critical thinking. By participating in this weekly book club, members can discuss various chosen topics that they are passionate about and share them with like-minded peers with similar interests, and in turn, gain a deeper understanding of the book they are reading and the topics of their discussions.

This kind of collaborative approach to reading also helps children to build up their communication and interpersonal skills, which can be valuable both in and outside of the classroom. Additionally, our book club is a great way to encourage learners to read more frequently and diversely, which can have many positive effects on their overall academic performance and self-confidence.

This group is prevalent, and spaces are limited. Registration is based on space availability.
