Academic development includes acquiring the attitudes, knowledge and skills that contribute to effective learning in school and across the life span. Strategies to achieve success such as organization, time management, study habits, critical thinking skills, and goal setting are essential. Through various activities, students will be prepared to choose from a wide range of substantial post-secondary options with an emphasis on college. Understanding the relationship of academics to the world of work is also a focus.
