​One On One Reviews

Description 

This portion of the clinic is designed for high school students in need of more accountability and motivation in order to meet their academic goals. 

Goals

 - To provide deadlines and achievement standards which will challenge the  students and tap into their God-given reserves of energy, adventure and significant work and service to others.

 - To train the students to become productive in order to provide for their own needs and others. This may include a requirement for students to pay their own way in tuition and fees, at least for certain specific projects.

 - To provide peer mentoring in specific goals and related projects; especially maintaining goals that are common to God's goals for man in family and community as His servants and ambassadors.

 - Increase accountability using the WCFS QSU Log student achievement recording system.

Format

Individual students will meet with staff to trouble shoot and resolve academic problems.

QSU™ logs will be checked for goal completions and signatures of dad.

Goals

To provide an outlet for physical activity, skill building, and teamwork.
