the power of the college success course

Fast Start

Stay in school


become an adult

The power and importance of a successful launch into college cannot be overstated.  The student is beginning to write the story of who they are as a college student.  Are they a happy, successful student? Or are they going to have a story of struggle and disappointment? 

The student must learn early on how to take responsibility for ensuring a positive start to their college life.  As a parent, we cannot want it for them.  They need to put in the work.

Students who start their college career successfully do not drop out.  Students who begin well get the most out of college, they thrive.  That is the goal.  Not just to endure college, always wondering if this the semester they drop-out.  

The goal is for your child to thrive in college.  A college life where they form solid relationships with peers and professors.  These relationships support of a feeling of belonging today that brings academic success. The student begins to achieve success beyond what they thought possible.  This leads them to invest themselves more in their education which leads to higher level classes and more academic opportunity. 

Their is an epidemic of children not successfully transitioning into adults.  They are delaying too much of life's important decisions.  This impacts them for the rest of their life.  The reason for much of this is a lack of attention and training in this area.  Read more below on the importance of these students Claiming Their Adulthood while in college.

Impostor Syndrome

Persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud

Impostor Syndrome(IS) is fairly common on college campuses.  A student will begin to develop a feeling that they do not belong in college.  They will feel they are not as good as the other students, they are struggling more with class work, and/or they do not fit into the campus social life.  This will cause the student to become isolated and withdrawn.  

Once they head down this path the student will continually find examples to reinforce their feelings. 

High-Achievers are particularly susceptible to Impostor Syndrome.
