In 9th grade your child’s GPA clock has officially started, meaning all academic performance will be part of their review for college admissions. This is not a time to stress, but a time to care. We help by focusing on the core of what matters and building out from there, holistically to help them become adaptable and proactive in their learning. By intervening now, we can avoid content or learning gaps that may otherwise present themselves throughout high school.
We show families how to establish a healthy Essential Eight™, i.e. a healthy routine and fundamental study skills to set a strong academic foundation. We help families utilize whatever state or district-level assessments that are employed, such as NWEA, to recommend enrichment activities to support your child’s growth throughout the year. Our program is well suited for all students but of particular benefit to students who have been or may soon be going through a neuropsychological evaluation.
9th grade is also a time to begin narrative building, mindfully choosing extracurriculars and other activities to build skills around interests and talents which will serve them well later when applying to college.
