What Makes Our Summer Program Unique
Research over the past five years increasingly highlights the importance of developing Essential Skills (the TSSI term for work practices and study habits). A recent study by the U.S. Department of Education found that these skills “are essential to an individual’s capacity to strive for and succeed at long-term and higher-order goals, and to persist in the face of the array of challenges and obstacles encountered throughout schooling and life."* Each Essential Skill carries a set of metrics on which our teachers help students measure, adapt, plan and move forward in positive directions on their learning pathway.
