The transition from middle school to high school can be tough on kids, a transition that threatens to be even more difficult after Covid. Take the stress out of freshman year and feel in control with our Step Up to High School class. This class is designed to help ease the transition for rising 9th graders by building their organizational skills and academic knowledge. In this class, students will learn study skills, time-management techniques, and communication skills to navigate those critical first few months of freshman year.
Topics covered will include:
-Creating a project plan to prioritize both near and long-term assignments
-Maintaining a daily calendar
-Making effective study guides
-Planning out and writing cogent, compelling essays
-Advocating for oneself with teachers, counselors, and administrators
By the end of this course, your child will have the tools he or she needs to start high school on the right foot and succeed academically in those crucial first few months.
Classes will run both virtually and in-person at our office in Livingston.
