Our mentorship program pairs underclassmen with a mentor who provides the tools and skills needed for success in higher education. Through weekly, one-on-one meetings, students explore and develop their interests, so they’ll have a better idea of what they want to study before they submit their college applications. We also build study and organizational skills and improve executive functioning abilities to prepare students for the rigors of college.
Our mentors help students grow as individuals and leaders. We provide a structure for mentees to explore and develop their interests, so they’ll have an idea of what field to pursue. Your child will be encouraged to reach out to current college students and professionals in a field of their choosing, so they can gain first-hand information and decide if their expectations match with the reality.
Conquering Academics and Extracurriculars
Our mentors serve as academic advisors, recommending which classes to take, which standardized tests best matches their abilities, and which extracurriculars will be most enjoyable while helping to round out their college application. All the while, students create a consistent story of leadership, creativity, or whichever theme best suits them.
In addition, our executive functioning program identifies any issues in your child’s academic performance and provides data-supported solutions. Your student may be strong in initiating tasks, for example, but weak with planning and organization, and so he would likely benefit from organizational frameworks. We take an overwhelmingly positive approach in showing the student that simple behavior changes can lead to large life improvements. Our students will learn to monitor their actions and implement strategies for lasting success.
Developing a Robust Resume
Through detailed planning sessions, our students design and carry out projects that are sure to impress colleges while also allowing students to explore an area of interest. Past projects have included creating an online business and marketing the products through social media, while others have gathered athletes and other community members to improve the town’s running trails. Students will also design a dream resume, and then work backwards to identify what they’ll need to achieve this goal.
