Secrets to Academics Revealed (STAR)
How the right team can help your child be successful!
The Secrets to Academics Revealed (STAR) was created to be a powerful resource for your child to uncover lifelong skills that will not only help them get A’s, but adopt the behaviour and mindset for lifelong success. We believe that through mindset, strategy, and support, any student can become an A - standard student.
The STAR Program has been designed by tutors, teachers and other professionals, and is a result of years of research and experience of what strategies actually work. The program is designed to work with your child to ensure that they understand exactly what they need to do to be successful. It is both theoretical and practical, and allows students to learn the skills of an A - student while completing their own class work throughout the term.
The STAR contains a set of nine strategy modules that targets a specific facet of what creates an A Student, and more importantly an A-standard human being.
Mindset of an A Student
