Students CAN become SUCCESSFUL – OUTSTANDING in their academic, spiritual and personal quests!

Education is often seen as a road map of subjects, courses, or tasks that once they are checked off, we deem that the student is ready to advance to the next level academically. However, it is the students’ APPROACH to learning that truly governs their competence!

Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire!          William Butler Yeats

It is vital that we train students how to become SELF-DIRECTED learners toward whatever endeavor they undertake.

Study Skills Intensive is designed to help students approach their education seriously and to achieve laudable personal goals! We teach them time-tested skills fundamental to attaining success and create the momentum for them towards rapid and elevated academic advancement. Students will be inspired to apply their talents, instructed as to how get the most out of every learning opportunity, and shown how to retain information to integrate it into future endeavors.

Dear Mrs. Lynn,
I just finished the REAL SAT test!!!!!! I remember how I felt about this test before I took your SAT Prep class. I was far from excited and extremely nervous to take something like the SAT or ACT test. However, thanks to your BRILLIANT teaching, thanks to your WONDERFULLY kind, understanding heart, thanks to your encouragement and inspiring attitude and passion for learning, thanks to you Mrs. Lynn, I woke up EXCITED and prepared to take the SAT test this morning! I knew exactly what I had to do and exactly how to do it. I don't know how I did on the test, but I confidently think that I did better than I have on any of my practice tests. I've learned so much in your classes. I feel as though I have grown so much that I thank you Mrs. Lynn! Thank you for preparing me for the SAT test and thank you for making it seem like a fun and easy test to take. I felt bad for all of the students there that didn't know the methods and techniques you have taught me. I'm certain I was the only one in the room repeating to myself 'My Pet Parrot Makes Attempts To Laugh.' XD I owe it all to you and the help that The Lord provided. Time to study for the ACT next Saturday!!! God bless


May 23, 2018 Dear Mrs Lynn, To be frank, CATP was the class that worried me the most. And, after the first week of math, I was frightened out of my wits. All of the homework, all of the CHALLENGING homework... I did not know if I could handle it. Yet, your enthusiasm and drive encouraged me and inspired me to tackle every challenge with vigor. Every week, you would teach us lessons with such "like jaw-dropping" intelligence. Without a doubt, you have helped me grow tremendously with the SAT and have helped me become more confident when test day arrives because I know that your teaching has prepared me. Thank you so much for what you have given me: knowledge. I know that my SAT scores are higher because of you, and that the possibilities of my future expanded as well. You are a gift from God. Love Sarah "I always thank my God as I remember you in my prayers, because I hear about your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all of the saints. Your love has given me great joy and encouragement, because you, brother, have refreshed the hearts of the saints." Philemon 4-7
