Academic Coaching – A Wasatch Academy Signature Program
Academic Coaching features a 1:1 student-to-specialist ratio, receiving direct instruction on identified executive function skills, brain-based skills that individuals must have to effectively solve problems and execute tasks. These skills include but are not limited to the following: prioritization, sustained attention, organization, task initiation, response inhibition, flexibility, and metacognition.
Academic Coaching is offered as a two-, three-, or five-day per week program, depending on the student’s need or request. Academic Coaching is ideal for students who have chronically underachieved as learners, with or without diagnosed learning differences. Our Academic Coaching program is not content-specific tutoring, it is explicit 1:1 instruction in skills necessary for lifelong success. These newly acquired and developing skills are applied in the current academic tasks asked of the student, making Wasatch effectively equipped among boarding schools with learning support.
