Landmark College, a global leader in educating students with learning differences (LD), is partnering with Johnson & Wales University (JWU) to host a new program that will help high school students prepare for success in higher education. Set to begin July 20 at JWU’s Denver Campus, the Preparing Students for College Success program will provide college-capable high school juniors and seniors with learning strategies and hands-on experiences that help them transition to life as an independent college student.
Over the course of two weeks, the program will provide a sampling of the Universal Design for Learning teaching model, which Landmark College uses to help students improve executive function skills, including focus, organization, planning, initiation of tasks, and self-monitoring.
In addition, students will take classes that help them better understand their learning strengths and challenges, strengthen their writing process, develop better habits for academic success, and take a course in either culinary arts or sports management. Afternoon recreational activities and weekend excursions will offer a balance to the program and allow students to learn to navigate independently in a variety of non-academic settings.
Parents also have an opportunity to participate in a weekend workshop that will give them a better understanding of their student’s needs regarding college readiness.
