Tackle Bigger Workloads With Confidence

There’s so much to juggle in high school: advanced classes, homework, college applications, jobs, extracurricular activities and social lives. (And yes, we realize your son or daughter may prioritize this list in reverse order!) Luckily, you’ve got the big picture in mind.

As your teen’s life kicks into high gear, help your son or daughter tackle the demands of high school with Advanced Study Skills. Learning effective study skills is a powerful way to create a strong high school student. Just as important, this course will successfully prepare your son or daughter for the challenges of college and careers.

You select the right skill areas for your teen, meaning our program can be tailored to your family’s exact needs. Your teen will develop a variety of “higher order” thinking skills and strategies — such as problem solving, life management and independence. We also reinforce positive behaviors and attitudes, building your teen’s confidence and perseverance.
