Our Philosophy

Integral Education

The core of integral education is focusing on the whole person: our physical, intellectual, spiritual and emotional growth. There are so many parts to who we are than just the mind. Impello’s educational experience is about exploring the ways to learn by integrating different pedagogies and practices.

We bring in the fullness and breadth of whole-person learning to complement the diverse learning ecosystems and needs on a company and individual level. Traditional education and learning lacks an integrated approach: it is very siloed. As a result, learners tend to be too narrowly focused, lack interdisciplinary and broader awareness or approaches that are needed in our changing world.

At Impello, we educate the whole person – the mind, the heart and the hands.
