Academic Life Coaching

 
 “Life coaching for kids is not just about streamlining study habits or staying organized.  It's about young people taking control.”

“Life coaching for kids is not just about streamlining study habits or staying organized.  It's about young people taking control.”

The Academic Life Coaching Program consists of 32 concepts delivered in 10 individual sessions that have been tested and refined over the past twelve years to achieve real results.  The Academic Life Coaching Program is designed to address:

  • Stress about grades

  • Disorganization and lack of motivation

  • Frustration in relationships (whether between parent/teen, teacher/student, or among peers)

  • Anxiety about the college application process


Why Academic Life Coaching Works

One-on-one mentoring

Students thrive when working one-on-one with a trained Academic Life Coach, because the coach is able to tailor the concepts of the program to the student and the immediate circumstances the student is facing. As a result, students see immediate improvements as well as learn valuable concepts to apply later in their lives. Students not only learn the concepts but have to act on them as they incorporate what they’ve learned into their daily habits and lives.

Learning in context

As students are learning new skills, they also have the opportunity to work through old and unproductive habits. So often students are stressed out over grades and their performance, yet don’t know their unique learning, thinking, or memory style. Students often relate grades to their self-worth, but grades are merely a reflection of the system a student is using to study. Change the system, change the grades, decrease stress.

 

Getting family on the same page

 The Academic Life Coaching Program is designed to work with the whole family dynamic. Students are encouraged to take ownership of the program and need to choose to do this kind of work for themselves. We strive to keep everyone on the same page via email and reports on the concepts covered in the program, with information on how best to support your child.
