A new academic year is upon us yet again! While parents and students double check their school supply list in preparation for a new school year many of them may overlook the importance of laying out a plan for academic success.
Having an academic success plan has becoming more crucial as the academic landscape continues to become more competitive year after year. Having a laid out plan could be the differentiating part of a student’s academic success for the upcoming school year and beyond.
Starting an academic success plan should start year in the school year and ideally should be one of the first tasks a student completes at the beginning of any school semester. It will help guide a student through the process of reflecting on what worked in the past but also to think about what changes they can make based on prior learnings they have had. Long term planning will allow a student to have the framework in place to help them meet their academic goals.
At Kids on the Line we will have every student go through an academic success plan where they will reflect on things that worked in the past but also things that didn’t go so well. They will also highlight subjects that they are passion about along with subjects that they may need to work on so they can focus on getting a well-rounded educational experience. Going through this process will allow us to cater how we help tutor our students in their academics to help them be successful.
