WHY COLLEGE EXCEL?
Increasingly, many young adults today are simply unprepared for the rigorous demands of going to college. Others have tried college and experienced a setback that has broken their academic and/or personal confidence. Often, these emerging adults are faced with a transition from a structured and supportive learning and living environment to then needing to function independently. For students with a unique learning style or learning differences, motivational issues, or other limiting obstacles, these newfound personal and academic responsibilities can be overwhelming.
OUR TIME-TESTED SOLUTION
At College Excel, we provide students with the tools, skill sets, and confidence needed to craft sustainable independence and academic success. Surrounded by our team of Student Success Coaches students receive daily support as they learn to tackle challenges and master the resilience needed to stay positive. Academically, students gain insight into their unique learning process and use this knowledge to acquire the skills and habits required to manage their course loads. Personally, students learn the essential skills for managing stress and emotions, setting and attaining personal goals, problem-solving, and living a healthy lifestyle - all of which are vital to a strong academic performance.
From teaching important academic skills to helping students manage course loads to tracking their progress, we keep students focused on taking their academic goals from inspiration to implementation.
We show students how their own passions can motivate and shape them into the adult they want to be. Our dedicated staff, engaged student body, and unparalleled Central Oregon setting provide the perfect combination in which to do so.
Our experienced team of Student Success Coaches collaborate with students to help them reach their full potential, both inside and outside of the classroom.
Our campus is an accessible and comfortable environment designed for coaching sessions, group meetings, quiet independent study time, and community gatherings.
Making sustainable life changes begins with a student's living space. Our independent student housing program provides students with the foundation for creating an intentional home.
