"More than anything, I really loved how TKS provided me with the best community in the world - I can relate to everyone, and its so great to have like-minded people to keep you accountable and push you further." -Aaryan Harshith

“TKS is awesome. There is no better program than this in the world. I owe all my conventional success to this program. I am meeting so much awesome people, and the program is already greatly exceeding my expectations SO MUCH. I couldn't be happier with the experience.” - Nushaine Ferdinand

"TKS has been a life-changing experience that I am so extremely grateful for. It is crazy how much I have grown already from the program. I have never met so many amazing, driven, like-minded people than I have here at TKS"  - Jessie Fournier

“This program is absolutely transformative. Because of TKS, I've found myself doing things that I never thought I would have done before. For example, TKS has inspired me to wake up at 5 AM. That is a monumental lifestyle change that has changed my life so much for the better. I leave every session feeling more motivated and more inspired.”  - Freeman Jiang

“My experience has been amazing so far, I feel like after every session I feel motivated to make progress on my goals. I feel more knowledgeable about science and technology now.”  - Farah El Siss

“TKS has been a memorable experience. I have learnt so much, especially in terms of growing as a person. I have learnt so much about what mindsets I should employ and develop in order to increase success in my life.  - Akshaj Darbar

We understand the risks of COVID-19. As an organization, we have taken the precautions that governments and authorities are advising to reduce the spread of the virus. 

We are planning to have in-person city programs operating in September 2021. We will also offer the ability to attend any session virtually for students registered in a city program. This option is for those who might be uncomfortable attending in-person programs for a period of time.

In the event of regional lockdowns, we will host sessions online. We've worked hard this year to optimize our online delivery of sessions using our innovative platforms as well as new learning techniques to minimize screen time and maximize team building.

If more than 70% of the in-person sessions are held virtually, we will reduce the in-person tuition price to match our virtual tuition price. The refund of the difference between the in-person and virtual tuition will be provided in June 2022.

We’re committed to being the gold-standard of education (there’s a reason why the World Economic Forum recognized us as a “School of the Future”). From the beginning, we’ve made large investments in our digital platforms and online infrastructure. This means that we’re 100% prepared for any situation to happen, and if physical distancing continues, we believe that we’ll still be able to deliver an incredible experience. Here are some of the things we have in place:

  • We’ve developed our own online portal (think of it like LinkedIn meets Google Classroom). Students from all TKS cities can connect with each other here, while also learning about emerging technologies.
  • We use a communication tool called Slack, which allows students to interact throughout the week.
  • We are using Zoom, a video conferencing platform that enables us to create monitored breakout rooms, as well as interactive features like whiteboards and polls.
  • We’re hosting special guest speakers from companies like Tesla and NASA, digitally.

We are fully confident that we will deliver a life-changing experience that will impact the trajectory of our student’s lives.
