Academic Events, Programs & Competitions

At the heart of ZEFR is the passion for the love of academics and the desire to pass on that torch by encouraging, motivating, inspiring students, especially those with limited resources or special needs.   Academic programs is a typical forum to bring students, families, and the community together.

Promoting academic competitions is one way to more involve students, their friends and families in striving for self improvement.

Competition is a classic driver for individual and group performance, as well as for being a safe testing field for one’s skills without the lasting implications of failure that often schools test may have. Competitions provide opportunities for building friendships and rivalries which bolster additional motivation.
