Our Academic Life Coaching Program consists of 32 concepts that have been tested and refined over the past seven years to address:
- Stress about grades and scores
- Finding motivation
- Getting organized
- Frustration in relationships (whether between parent/teen, teacher/student, or among peers)
- Anxiety about College application and admission
Achieve ambitious academic and athletic goals through sustainable steps that become transferable life skillsets.
Scoring well can be a lot of pressure to formative minds and individuals who are still developing their coping mechanisms.
