The importance of your children building good habits has never been greater. They are faced with

  • increasing competition to gain acceptance to the schools of their choice.
  • a growing challenge to balance school work, after school activities, and a personal life.
  • and a lack of time to focus on a potential future direction and purpose.

Don't wait until college...

Our LEARNING HABITS & STUDY SKILLS program prepares students to meet the challenges of high school academic and social life, as well as coaches them toward a successful transition from high school to college. It can help them

  • study more effectively for specific subjects.
  • increase self-confidence and self-esteem.
  • gain greater control of their lives.
  • make smarter decisions.
  • handle stressful situations (like test-taking) with effectiveness.
  • recognize and prioritize their goals.
  • find balance among school, work, and friends.

Academic Resources has partnered with FranklinCovey Co., a global leader in effectiveness training, to offer a customized program aimed at increasing a student's effectiveness and results, both in school and in life.
