The Academic Strategies Program (ASP) is an integral component of learning support, and its holistic approach reaches far beyond the classroom. Led by our experienced academic coaches, this program provides a variety of options for students requiring additional academic and executive functioning support, from organization and time management to effective reading strategies and self-advocacy skills. Sessions are based on individual student needs with additional instruction and practice of academic habits. ASP helps students to find their academic stride, self-confidence to advocate for themselves in and outside of the classroom, and comfort in using educational tools independently. If a student is not enrolled in ASP, she is welcome to drop in or schedule an appointment with an academic coach at any time throughout the academic day. ASP is student-focused, guided and instructed by academic coaches, and available to all Oldfields girls.
As part of the Academic Strategies Program, Oldfields School offers an elective course for 8th and 9th graders. This yearlong academic course provides students with a foundation of academic skills and habits that will set them up for success as they move through high school. This course will cover a variety of topics, such as identifying and understanding one’s learning profile, managing and organizing one’s academic responsibilities, and overall executive functioning skills.
