To create a global community of coaches and professionals with thriving coaching careers that empower individuals to flourish.
Academic Life Coaching was founded in 2005 by John Andrew Williams, a middle school and high school Latin teacher. Passionate about alternative methods in education, he began exploring ways to use powerful life coaching concepts to help students improve emotional intelligence and design their future.
Since the program launch, Academic Life Coaching has trained over 300 coaches and educators, in over 27 countries. Academic Life Coaching has also worked with several universities, high schools, and nonprofit organizations. As the network grows, so do the results of our efforts.
