Academic Life Coaching

The Academic Life Coach Training program is a core life coach training course with additional tools specifically designed for students.

The training is for individuals and teams who want to add a complete coaching skillset to empower students and young adults with insights and experience to lead fulfilled, effective lives. 

Engage and Retain

Universities report an average retention boost of 5 to 10% when advisors and coaches complete one of the Coach Training EDU’s programs.

The boost comes from the increased engagement students have when working with a trained and certified Academic Life Coach.

The Engage to Retain Program makes a real difference in the lives of advisors and thus students, creating a positive university culture where people speak a common language and have a similar mindset proven to help students thrive.

The largest and most recent case study is Coach Training EDU’s 2016 project with The University of Oklahoma. The university trained 28 staff members, across six different departments. Training and certification along with several other retention policy changes resulted in a 30.9% reduction in dropouts from Freshman Spring to Sophomore Fall. The retention rate also jumped from 86.1% to 90.4%. That is 186 more students who stayed in school.

Other universities have reported as much as a 13% jump in retention among students on academic probation or behind in graduation hours.

Contact Coach Training EDU for group high school and university pricing options for the 1.0 Academic Life Coach Training Program as well as the optional additions below. Usually the baseline fee is charged per participants or based on boost in retention between spring and fall academic years.

“As a trained school counselor, I wasn’t sure whether or not I really ‘needed’ ALC training to get started coaching students. But I am so glad I took the plunge and registered for the course!

The assistance and support I received, not just during my training but also for months afterwards as I started to set up my coaching business, was invaluable to me and ensured I was totally prepared from day one.

My trainer, and the customer support team at ALC, were all so responsive and helpful, and I still feel like a part of their family.”

How Our Education Model is Different

The Classroom is Flipped.

Lectures are prerecorded so class time is spent engaging with instructors and participants.

No Grades. Only Feedback.

Assessments and checks for understanding are designed to guide, not judge. Exploration and creativity thrive in such a safe space.

Deep Work. Deep Learning.

The clarity you gain from the feedback and one-on-one practice will transform you. You will grow as much personally as you do professionally.
