Welcome to Cognitive Acceleration Theory, an enrichment program series developed by award-winning instructor and Oregon Teacher of the Year finalist, Jay Ashkinos. As an educator of talented and gifted students for the past two decades, Mr. Ashkinos has tailored a system of cognitive development that has fostered the growth of highly motivated fifth to eleventh grade students throughout the United States.
Through the lens of great literature and historical study, combined with Mr. Ashkinos’s proven system of cognitive development, students grasp complex analytical concepts, organize powerful, analytical writing, form a deeper understanding of history and society, and build confident leadership skills. A great number of Mr. Ashkinos’s students go on to attend some of the top colleges and work at the finest companies in the world, as these skills carry forward not only to middle and high school academic demands, but also to college and beyond!
CAT programs are recorded and produced for students so they may move at their own pace, and new programs are being added regularly so that Cognitive Acceleration Theory can be put to use as a strong supplement to your child’s academic journey!
Let CAT serve as a step in your bright child’s even brighter future! We build great minds!
