Life-Coaching is another important component of The Academy Way model. Life-Coaching creates a socially-emotional safety net at all of our schools. We are focused on creating school environments where students feel socially, emotionally and physically safe. Because we make this a priority, we begin every school day with Life-Coaching.
For 20-30 minutes each morning, various topics (see below) are discussed. During this time, we divide our entire student body into small groups to talk about LIFE. Nothing interrupts this time. The Academy NJ serves extraordinary children with Dyslexia, ADHD and Non-Traditional Learners in Holmdel, NJ.
Age and grade-level dependent, we focus on discussions in these 5 areas:
It is our goal for each student to create a meaningful relationship with an adult during Life-Coaching. With this, our Life-Coaches are able to help guide and support students through obstacles that arise in school and in life. Special bonds are also created between students during Life-Coaching.
As students get older, we create gender specific and smaller-sized groups. When possible, an adult of the same gender as the students is assigned to each Life-Coaching group. We believe as students get older, there is more specific life information that needs to be shared and discussed with each other in these groups.
Information a student shares during Life-Coaching that may jeopardize their emotional or physical safety is immediately shared with parents.
