Confident Life Coaching Grad

"Life Coaching helped me get clear
about what I really wanted.
I know that whatever I set my mind to,
I can actually do it. Live it. Not just say it."

Life Coaching & Life Coach Training

Two Programs, One Mission

Academic Life Coaching is on a mission to equip young people with the skills most necessary to thrive and meet future challenges. We offer a one-to-one life coaching program for high school and college students as well as an ICF approved life coach training and certification course for educators, professionals, and parents.


Based on empirical research as well as first-hand experience, the Academic Life Coaching Program is a ten session coaching program that helps students increase their Emotional Intelligence as well as build their leadership, communication, and academic skills. The program also addresses the best ways to manage stress, get good grades, maintain motivation, and approach college applications.


Academic Life Coaching is the first coaching training company to be approved by the ICF to offer Life Coach Training and Certification specifically for educators and those wanting to work as a Life Coach for teens. The training covers core life coaching fundamentals, concepts specific to teenagers, and how to establish a successful Academic Life Coaching practice.

Academic Life Coaching is not simply a life coaching company.

We are part of the movement to redesign education.
