The Akademia Curriculum                                         

Q: What is The Akademia?
A: The Akademia is a creative learning institution for all ages and the only one of its kind in the world to embrace the quantum mind paradigm and develop a curriculum around the Five Laws of the Quantum Mind.

Q: What is the Quantum Mind paradigm?

A: In the course of history, there have been major paradigms or eras that have marked great change to the human societies throughout the world- from the agricultural paradigm to the technology paradigm. The old technology paradigm is rooted in a linear model and its premise is that the physical world is dominant over the realm of the mind. We are currently entering the Quantum Mind paradigm, which asserts that the processing power of the mind actually allows control over the physical world. Researchers have now demonstrated that the cells of the brain and body engage in quantum level processing and quantum effects, thus affecting matter at its most fundamental level.

Q: What are the Five Laws of the Quantum Mind?
A: The Five Laws of the Quantum Mind govern the interaction between the quantum mind and reality as we experience it. To understand and apply all five laws it to exert an unprecedented control over your reality, and all five laws amplify each other interdependently. The First Law of the Quantum Mind is the Law of Attraction, which states that each thought has a frequency that attracts the object of that thought into reality. The stronger the emotion associated with that thought, the faster and more powerfully it will manifest. The Five Laws of the Quantum Mind cannot be taught by simply providing a list and explanation, they must be experienced through an integrated curriculum to be effectively learned and applied. The Akademia is the only learning institution in the world with knowledge of the Five Laws of the Quantum Mind and the curriculum needed to transfer that knowledge to you.

Q: What is the meaning of 'your unique Personal Vision'?
A: Your unique Personal Vision is your vision statement for your ideal life that includes all key physical, intellectual and imaginative components. While there are structured components of each of these key areas in The Akademia curriculum that enable you to apply all Five Laws of the Quantum Mind, the higher goals in each area are completely up to you. The objective of the four year curriculum is the development of your unique personal vision culminating in a diploma and launch of your personal vision into the real world.

Q: What is a Creative Project?
A: Your Creative Project is a creative work in your primary interest area that you either submitted during the admission process or developed during the first year. During the four year program, you will create one new project per year, which will be the subject of your global marketing campaign.

Q: What is the cost of attending The Akademia?
A: The average college tuition for four years of college, room & board is private colleges is $138,853. Currently, the average student loan debt is $37,000.
