Feedback and Growth
By pairing executive function strategies with regular feedback from teachers, coaches, dorm parents, and trusted adults, your Learning Specialist is able to monitor your growth and offer targeted support. In addition, they’ll help you build critical competencies including time management, test-taking strategies, study skills, organization, and more.
Students enrolled in Academic Coaching do not need a diagnosed learning difference. Instead, spaces are reserved for those who are looking to reach new levels of academic and personal achievement. Students with educational testing, however, should submit documentation in order to secure accommodations in classes, in the community, and on standardized testing.
“The energy and time that adults put into the kids here are substantial and genuine and you can really feel that. What we do is we provide Academic Coaching. Similar to an athletic coach, we are trying to train kids to be effective learners.”
—Trevor Slater, PEAK Program Chair, Learning Specialist, Social Studies Teacher
