Executive Skills Program

Promoting academic success

The Executive Skills Program is a one-year, college preparatory course for students who need additional support with planning and organizing, initiation, working memory, problem-solving, and self-monitoring. Our small classes allow teachers to develop individualized strategies based on each student’s specific needs. We measure progress based on a student’s ability to work independently and to self-advocate under a wide range of circumstances — executive functioning traits that are necessary for success in a college and work environment.

When I'm helping boys become better learners, I start with improving their confidence. When they believe in themselves, they are capable of achieving anything. Often, knowing someone believes in them makes all the difference.
