For many students, social, emotional, and psychological changes make the leap from grade school to high school difficult. Transitions serves as a critical bridge program for students preparing to enter high school.
Transitions begins in the weeks leading up to the start of the school year and includes two, mid-year follow-up sessions.
The Transitions model helps students prepare to navigate a new environment, realize the importance of first impressions and presentation of self, learn to become an Iconoclastic thinker, have a deeper understanding of who they are, recognize learning styles to become an effective learner and application of new found negotiating skills for a win-win outcome.
The one tool that I have used is time management. I use it to manage time. I use it for homework, chores and schoolwork.
ELA impacted my students’ self-esteem and confidence, leadership skills, goal setting abilities, networking skills, time management, project management strategies and professionalism. Business and industry is demanding that its workforce have these skills, but when and where do students learn them? ELA not only taught my students these success skills but truly developed them in these aspiring young professionals. My students are leaving the Effective Leadership Academy with a competitive advantage that applies throughout their future education and professional opportunities.
ELA is a thoughtful and energetic group. We have been so thrilled with the ELA programming that we have not only continued to bring them to campus, but we have expanded their role in working with our students on leadership development. ELA has created several unique and exceptional curricula for the many initiatives on which we have partnered. We look forward to continuing our relationship with ELA, so that our students will have the opportunity to learn from the best.
