At UCanachieve, learning is much more than merely acquiring knowledge. The learning process is a means of building character. We work to keep your teenager engaged in the learning process; teaching him or her to seek out knowledge and connect to the process of studying in a way that is personally meaningful as a result of the implementation of our individual learning plans.
We offer guidance and encouragement in using learning as a stepping stone to developing the important executive functions of persistence, planning, and self-control.
Individual learning plans
Upon entry into our program, each student participates in a comprehensive evaluation to determine his individual strengths, weaknesses and learning styles.
Individual learning plans (ILP) are developed with each student. Through collaborative discussion and problem-solving, your teenager will be paired with an educational mentor to develop strategies that accentuate and build upon his or her strengths.
Together, your teen and his or her mentor will clarify short and long term goals and develop an action plan.
They will establish lines in order to monitor progress and work together to create a successful learning program.
At UCanachieve, we value and encourage student participation and innovation in the learning process. Learn more here.
Students work individually or in small groups with educational mentors in order to develop the study skills necessary for independent learning. The coursework provides each student with the capability of obtaining an accredited high school diploma that prepares him or her for the transition to college.
