THE KEY TO ACADEMIC PROFICIENCY
The SSC staff helps individual students with time management, materials organization, specific learning skills for coursework, tests and quiz-taking strategies, goal setting, and leadership skills so that they can thrive both in and out of the classroom. SSC staff also trains Study Skills teachers to offer full-period courses that provide subject-specific support in all content areas to fill gaps in academic proficiency and prepare students for the challenges they face in the classroom and life.
