Gurun Academy is the official representative of Stanford University Pre-College summer program for children of 14 to 17 in Mongolia. Under the program, 12 Mongolian selected students had taken classes at Stanford University for 14 days, traveled through San Francisco, and became friends with 300 children from 20 states.
Children between ages of 14-17 feel themselves as a growing adult and yet still childish. They start to experience strong shifts or changes in their mind and have to make multiple important questions such as who to become, what career to choose and what is my life goal to pursue. The purpose of this program is to help children to find their answers. Moreover, it gives an opportunity to experience and understand diverse culture. The program is evaluated as very handful to broaden children’s perspective and develop analyzing and critical thinking skills.
