​                  Achievement Strategies

Focus on Achievement

We start with research from leading psychologists and from our own studies. Data from our Pilot Study sample ​indicate that nearly nine of ten high school students get discouraged and become self-critical when they don't live up to their own expectations. How students manage their response to feeling discouraged can impact their academic success as well as their future prospects.
