Read about the measures underway at Landmark to ensure the health and safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Strong Study Skills = Academic Success
It's been proven that effective study skills, routines, and habits lead to a more successful academic experience. With Skills+, in just two weeks middle and high school students can take their skills to the next level. Executive function challenges are common among students. Our short and effective seminars will help students refine their study and executive function skills, explore and adopt new strategies, develop strong study habits, and boost academic achievement in a small, low-pressure setting.
Our Skills+ program is designed specifically for students enrolled in public or private middle and high schools who need to develop strategies and skills to apply across all subjects for an academic advantage next year and beyond.
The program is designed for students who have NOT been diagnosed with a language-based learning disability, but seek help with executive function skills and strategies to improve and strengthen their academic experience.
