The Power of Mindset

Resilient learners aren’t necessarily smarter. But they believe in themselves. They work hard, handle setbacks, and manage their time and habits better. The Academy’s Program for Academic and Career Advancement (PACA) helps even underprepared individuals—including those who have been out of school for years—develop the confidence, grit, and core competencies to succeed in postsecondary education and, of course, in their jobs as well.

The Academy develops remarkably resilient learners through coaching that supports behavioral change, creating a sense of belonging in academic settings, and strengthening social and emotional skills that build resiliency.

We can help your institution’s students or employees become strong, resilient learners.
