Raising Student Achievement at Your School
One size does not fit all, especially for school leaders and faculty working hard to raise student achievement and build college-readiness skills in a landscape of constantly changing assessments. That’s why Academic Approach customizes flexible, effective solutions for schools. We work collaboratively with school leadership to develop a school-based solution that builds college readiness, increases teacher capacity, and offers clear and directive insight into student learning and the most significant gaps in student achievement.
Our solutions not only increase your students’ performance on college-entrance exams – we target the ACT or the SAT, on the timeline you require – but also prepare students to master and transfer key Common Core-aligned, college-readiness skills for greater success in their high school and college-level classrooms. It is this mission of raising both scores and skills that we refer to as Teaching Beyond the TestTM.
Academic Approach brings to its school-based solutions over a decade of expertise in college-entrance exam instruction. Our success with thousands of individual students has grounded us in the value of a unique and customized approach to partnering with you to raise student achievement at your school.
Before designing a solution, we gather essential information and context from school leadership, so we understand your unique culture and needs. We align our objectives to your school’s objectives.
We gather essential data flexibly and efficiently. Our real-time CRS-, CCRS-, SAT-, and CCSS-aligned reporting allows us to use your school’s existing data or to deliver our own assessments to yield data that identifies student needs quickly and thoroughly.
Our testing and analysis help faculty begin to identify gaps in students’ skills and learn how to plan the most effective instructional response.
Our professional development supports rigorous, standards-aligned lesson planning. Our CRS-, CCRS-, SAT-, and CCSS-aligned resources help faculty differentiate instruction through targeted lesson planning and station work leveled to student ability. Our classroom course instruction brings our expert instructors directly to your school to help raise your students’ scores through high-quality, high-impact teaching that engages students in essential skill building.
