SUPAJA provides online live class platform that allow students to meet certified teachers anytime, anywhere in the world. During online classes, students and teachers will be on live video where they can see, hear and ask questions to each other. SUPAJA has inherited the philosophy of “Sunmyeong School,” founded by Headmaster Lee Heungwoon and his wife Lee Ok-ja, the parents of SUPAJA CEO, Lee Myung-ho. For 21 years from 1960 to 1981, the school had provided learning opportunities to about 2,000 students who could not attend school due to poverty. SUPAJA has practiced this philosophy by providing learning opportunities to students who are struggling with various constraints such as region and economy. Today, in 151 cities in 33 countries around the world, students are taking classes through SUPAJA. We are constantly challenging and innovating to become the world’s largest “fenceless school”.
