Academic skill-building courses for all learning styles
For students entering 9th, 10th, 11th, or 12th grade
Learning is a cumulative process. Throughout our lives, we build on existing knowledge and skills to master progressively more complex operations and tasks. For this reason, the Summer Session Connect program is based on the belief that the process of learning is as important as the content learned. Learning how to learn may be one of the most important skills you can acquire as you prepare for greater challenges in high school, college, and life. Cushing Academy gives you the tools you need to participate more fully, enthusiastically, and successfully in your college preparatory curriculum.
The Connect program encompasses three key components: strategies to improve English language skills, review and practice of mathematics skills, and study techniques. At the start of the program, we assess your academic skills and place you in appropriate English, mathematics, and study technique courses.
Students enrolled in the Connect program participate in all three courses each morning: English language skills, Mathematics skills, and Study Techniques.
Once you are placed in appropriate classes, your teachers help you understand and appreciate your particular learning style and set reasonable and attainable personal goals. This approach helps you to capitalize on your strengths, recognize your weaknesses, and formulate an action plan for achieving academic success.
