Maranatha's new Academic Coaching Program is designed to provide personalized support to students in developing their executive functioning skills and building confidence in the classroom. In this program, students work closely with a dedicated coach in a small class setting to set goals, create action plans, and implement effective learning strategies. This foundation helps students prioritize tasks, manage time efficiently, and stay organized.
Investing in our students' executive functioning skills benefits their academic success and equips them with essential life skills. Students will develop a growth mindset, resilience, and lifelong learning habits vital for success in today's fast-paced world. Research shows that academic coaching enhances high school students' academic performance. A study in the Journal of Educational Psychology highlighted significant improvements in students' time management, study habits, and overall achievement through academic coaching.

COST: This program is provided for an additional fee of $2,000 per year, or $1,000 for Semester One only. 

CLASS SIZE is limited to 10 students, and enrollment is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
