Achieving Goals: What It Means as a Kumon Parent and Student

Setting goals is the first step toward successful goal achievement. In order to visualize  your goals, make a plan to reach them, and eventually achieve them, you must first learn how to set goals. When starting the Kumon Program, parents and students have specific goals in mind. They may range from reaching grade level to completing the Kumon Math or Reading Program. We have compiled several stories from Kumon Parents and Students on how the Kumon Program helped them achieve their goals. Use these stories to encourage your family to reflect on your goals this past year.
