FAQ

  • What is SUCCESS LADDER ACADEMY’s Academic Success Coaching Program?
    Success Ladder Academy utilizes a comprehensive, innovative approach to learning that addresses a student's Math, Literacy and subject area needs. Assessment-based instruction of Common Core State Standards content, Independent Study Skills, Goal setting/motivation and Leadership training are integrated into the student's individualized program. Each student has a success coach who will assess content, develop and deliver an instructional program to meet the student's needs, and track/communicate progress to parents and school. The overall goal is to develop competent and confident learners using this comprehensive program.
  • IS A SUCCESS COACH THE SAME AS A TUTOR?
    No! Tutors only focus on the academic progress of a student. Success Coaches work with students to improve their organizational skills and overall motivation to learn. This is all necessary to ensure that students can engage in the classroom.
  • HOW OFTEN DOES MY CHILD MEET WITH THEIR ACADEMIC SUCCESS COACH?
    Your flat monthly investment allows your child to meet with their Academic Success Coach up to 10 times per month. Most of their interactions will be in small group setting via the assigned cohort. Your child will come twice weekly within the cohort schedule. Up to 2 additional 1:1 sessions will be scheduled as needed as well.
  • DOES SUCCESS LADDER ACADEMY ASSIGN HOMEWORK?
    We don’t assign “homework” but we do provide students with online learning tools to reinforce instruction.
  • HOW WILL I KNOW IF MY CHILD IS SUCCESSFUL WITH HIS OR HER SUCCESS COACHING PROGRAM?
    The Success Coach will track and monitor progress weekly. Communicating with parents will be a top priority. Based on assessment, student feedback and motivation the child's program can be adjusted to meet current and future needs. Challenging work will be offered and encouraged, as well as student accountability. The child will be taught the necessary organizational tools to succeed and responsibility for his or her own learning. Our assessments will track academic progress, enhanced by the acquisition of independent study skills, goal setting/motivation and leadership skills. Our individualized program goes beyond academic skills to address the whole student.
  • HOW DOES THE GAME SHOW SET COME INTO PLAY?
    We are the ONLY Academic Success Coaching program with a built-in gamification component. We have a LIVE GAME SHOW SET in our location! Our game shows are customized with academic content related to the learning objectives of our student leaders. Our Founder, Jackie P Taylor believes strongly in setting “short term incentives for long term goals” for our youth. The regular game show activities provide an incentive for our student leaders to take ownership of their studies in all subjects. The content of the academic studies each semester is also the content for the game show questions. The better they master the material, the better their chances of winning on the game show. Win-Win!
