Life Success Skills for Parents and Children in Middle & High School

As a parent, your child’s education is of utmost importance — and succeeding in school puts them on the fast track to top private schools, esteemed colleges, and personal fulfillment.  However, no child reaches academic excellence unless they can organize, plan, and manage their time effectively. While these Life Success Skills are rarely taught in school, they’re irreplaceable when it comes to achievement — both in the classroom and beyond. 

We Teach Students to Own Their Education 

Do you ever ask yourself:

  • How do I help my child pay more attention in school?
  • How do I help my child get the most from learning?
  • Why does my child struggle to complete homework on time while at home?
  • How can I motivate my child to do better in school among the educational challenges?
  • Why is my child having difficulty understanding certain subjects?
  • Why does my child wait until the last minute to study for an exam or start a project?
  • Why does my child have problems taking tests despite having studied for many hours?
  • How can my child learn about and execute self discipline? 

If you have wondered any of the above, you are not alone!

The most important thing you need to understand is that nothing is wrong with your child; these are normal struggles all children have during this time. They are struggling because they have not been adequately taught the most critical skills to excel in education: Life Success Skills.

These skills are the foundation for achievement both inside and outside the classroom. From planning, organization, and time management to self-control, task initiation, and perseverance, Life Success Skills teach students to:

  • Pay attention (in live or online classes)
  • Remember and follow multi-step instructions
  • Avoid distractions
  • Control their responses
  • Adjust when rules or situations change
  • Persist at problem-solving
  • Manage long-term assignments
  • And more

When these skills aren’t taught, students may memorize the material in school but forget assignments, fail to complete long-term projects, have trouble focusing, and have difficulty with change. Learning executive functioning Life Success Skills help every student improve their performance in school and in life.

Most schools simply don’t have the time to help students with these skills, yet they are irreplaceable in achieving academic excellence. Life Success Skills must be taught — they are not innate. Ivy League schools and other esteemed institutions are looking for students who are the right fit, which is why these skills become increasingly important over time as students start being assigned more homework, have more exams in their academic careers, and need to learn additional analytical skills they have not yet encountered.

Life Success Skills help students become self-motivated and take ownership of their education — and life. No child ever achieves their highest level of success without them; they’ll not only show up in academics but outside activities and extracurricular activities as well.

We understand you’re concerned about whether or not your children are paying attention in their online classes, which is why building this foundation matters now more than ever. By teaching them Life Success Skills, ASC can enrich your child’s educational experience, help them achieve high grades, and prepare them for the future!

Join us for a virtual open house Thursday, March 3rd at 6:30 PM and learn valuable skills that middle and high school students can use to own their education. Students can learn the fundamentals they need to not just master the class materials but to excel in their education and beyond. We teach children to be self-reliant and take responsibility for their academic success.

"I was enrolled in another program in which there were only children who were very advanced. The instructors did not know how to teach students who were performing at their regular grade level, and it was a waste of time. The teachers at ASC are always very prepared, they explain things clearly, and the homework aligns with the lessons."
