Character Education

Something more important than excellence


Throughout one's career, individuals experience a series of life events where they may either go with the flow or swim against the current, resulting in a mix of successes and failures.

The educational philosophy of Kang Chiao emphasizes organizing various types of group activities through schools and classrooms to provide children with a sense of belonging, fulfillment, and enjoyment in group settings.
