After being expelled from St Stephen's Primary School for misbehavior and poor academic results at the age of eight, he attended a government school, Ping Yi Secondary School, where he was able to pass only five out of eight academic subjects.

As a child, Adam Khoo was a lazy fellow with poor social skills. He was totally uninterested in learning, did not enjoy reading anything but comics, and was addicted to arcade games and TV programs.

At the age of 13 came the turning point in his life, when his parents enrolled him for a five-day residential program at Ladyhill Hotel called Super-Teen Camp. At the camp, his talent was spotted by Dr. Ernest Wong, founder, principal consultant and master teacher of Ernesco, the Centre for Motivational Language Learning.

With the help of Dr. Wong's innovative learning technology known as neuro-linguistic programming (NLP) as well as whole-brain learning, within three months of the program, he made his way among the top 18 students in his secondary school.

Within a year, he went on to rank among the top 10 in Ping Yi Secondary and later became the first student from his school to qualify for Victoria Junior College.
