Life Coaching for Teens and Students
Helping students thrive and develop positive life skills
What is Academic Life Coaching?
The Academic Life Coaching Program is designed to help students thrive and develop positive life skills. The program is comprised of methods and concepts delivered by a trained and certified Academic Life Coach. Academic Life Coaching goes beyond youth mentoring or counseling by helping students understand how best to learn at school, be proactive, and exercise personal leadership. The skills that teens learn in the present have an exponential impact on their future. Learning these skills helps students avoid common pitfalls and can drastically influence the upward trajectory of personal fulfillment and success.
