Supporting unique learners is our passion.
Our students are bright and academically capable, but often anxious about their upcoming or current college experience. They often indicate concern about their readiness, or are currently struggling to meet the demands of college life. They are eager to be successful. Most of our students do not fit neatly into one or several checkboxes.
Some have documented learning differences and some may have simply excelled through secondary education with a lot of structure in place. Their range of identifiers may be long-standing or they may be new. It’s usually complicated and we welcome all types of learners on their journey. It’s often best to contact us to discuss how your student can benefit from our services.
