Our Name

Newton Study Center is named after Sir Isaac Newton, because his life story signifies that in each one of us there are often unrealized potentials. Discovering and realizing these untapped potentials is what we at Newton Study Center strive for.

Our Logo

It is said that Sir Isaac Newton discovered his most important contribution - universal gravitation - while watching an apple fall from a tree in his garden. The apple in Newton's logo thus stands for how easily knowledge and wisdom can come to an attentive mind in the right environment. We at Newton Study Center work to provide our students with the kind of environment necessary to discover and realize their untapped potential.



Beginnings

Newton Study Center was established in 2001. Its main purpose, though not exclusively, was to conduct reviews. The birth year saw the successful launch of the Newton College Entrance Review (CER). The first batch of which consisted of 46 students. In August of the following year, the Newton High School Review (HER) was introduced. Aside from CER and HER, Newton has expanded its services by offering Tutorials – which has evolved into 2 categories: Academic and Advanced, and K-san Math. In 2005, its review programs extended to Civil Service Review.

Newton expansion started in 2003 upon the establishment of its second branch. As Newton continues to grow, materials development is a priority. In 2004, Newton 's publishing arm, the Bluewater Publishing, was founded. In the same year, Newton published through Bluewater its first review book.

The Center's success in enhancing the educational abilities of students has led to the establishment of five branches to date and to the development of more review books.
