Skills & Habits for Academic Success

Our culture of inquiry and small class sizes help students develop the skills and habits to become creative  problem-solvers. We have studied the current research on teaching, learning and academic achievement in college as well as interviewed college admission officers, surveyed students and solicited feedback from some of the most highly respected educators in the country. During that process, we developed a summary of the skills and habits that correlate with success. These skills and habits — naturally developed through student-driven inquiry — are what students need to thrive as learners in high school, college and beyond. Taking this one step farther, we give students frequent, specific and actionable feedback on their development in The Essential Skills and Habits. When you combine a culture of student-driven inquiry with targeted feedback on our Essential Skills and Habits, students develop into dynamic learners.
