Summer Learning - Part 4

Solid study skills are critical for students looking to succeed in challenging academic environments.

Students transitioning from elementary to middle school and from middle to high school often struggle with raised expectations and more demanding coursework, especially if they do not have tools and techniques in place to support these increased demands.

Note taking, time management, project management, test taking strategies, reading comprehension skills, the ability to write well, and organization are all critical skills needed to insure success in a challenging academic environment. An investment in a study skills class can reap big rewards down the road when students are better organized, feel less stressed, and earn better grades.
