What Our College Student Coaches Do
Our College Student Coaches program is now entering its 14th year! We work with students from most of the colleges in Massachusetts and some outside of the state.
Our mission is to help students make the transition from High school to college as stress-free as possible. We also help existing college students who want to up their game, or who may be struggling with academic, social, or other challenges.
We do this by empowering and teaching each student the life, study and work skills and behaviors necessary to make a smooth transition from high school to college or to get to the next level in their college experience.
Key skills that a life coach for college students can focus on:
As a result of this 12-week program students can learn how to better:
- Schedule and manage time better
- Plan your semester
- Study better
- Take notes
- Balance school work and socializing
- Relax and calm yourself
- Do better and feel better in social situations
- Project more confidence
- Increase self-esteem
- Manage roommates
The Coaching Relationship
The coaching relationship is a voluntary relationship whereby the student must agree to do work between sessions and be accountable to our college student coaches.
All coaching session work is conducted via Zoom and is done weekly in 45 minute sessions. Work between sessions involves the student setting some goals and timelines for work needing to be done based on the syllabus deadlines.
The student is also able to contact the coach via text or email to report on successes or challenges between sessions.
We co-collaborate the weekly agenda, working together to create short term, solution-focused action plans so the student can prepare for quizzes, exams, papers, and presentations.
We help the student build a set of customized tools that create a foundation for success in college and for the rest of their life.
We use a personalized, holistic approach that allows for a smooth transition to college. We help the student to access support and navigate academic opportunities in an effort to reach their personal and educational goals. Our Student Success Coaches provide a crucial linkage between students and the College’s curricular and co-curricular education and connect students to resources in the community that will enhance their success.
Who We Help
Our college student coaches help kids and adults with developmental challenges such as ADHD or ADD, or those with no challenges at all. Our College Student Coaching for Success program is a great resource for modifying existing behaviors as well as just dealing with day to day pressures that can sidetrack students or make them feel overwhelmed. A College Student Success Coach will help the student to craft immediate and/or long term strategies and provide the accountability that they need.
The $1,794, 12-semester college student life coach fee, is an investment in the student’s future. They will learn skills and healthy behaviors that will benefit them far beyond the college experience.
Our students have reported that these skills and behaviors have helped them prepare to successfully navigate work, family and career life. The fee is paid in 3 monthly installments of $598.00
Our program does get filled up toward the end of the summer, if not before. So we encourage signing up early to reserve a slot. We usually do have a waitlist so that might be an option as well.
