Academic Coaching

The Academic Coaching program is designed to help you succeed academically.  Anyone who wants to learn how to balance life and school, create goals for themselves, and to increase their motivation to succeed is encouraged to be a part of this special program.  It is especially helpful if you have experienced academic difficulty or gotten off track.  Counselors serve as the academic coach to help identify and improve current strengths, help students overcome challenges encountered along the way.
