Academic Coaching Program

Academic coaches work with students on self-advocacy, goal clarification, motivation, mindfulness, time management, study skills and reading comprehension and help create personal plans for academic success.

Key to their work is a student-centered approach that builds self-advocacy and accountability and encourages students to fully engage with all of the resources and learning opportunities Champlain has to offer.

Every Opportunity for Success

Students are busier and manage more competing priorities than ever before and their aspirations for themselves continue to grow. Through one-on-one sessions and small group workshops, Academic Coaching offers each student an opportunity to work with a professional who is trained in providing academic and motivational support, customized to each student's own strengths and goals.

We take pride in knowing that Champlain students are developing skills that not only provide short-term success at Champlain, but will be a valuable advantage as they progress professionally after graduation.
