One-to-One Coaching Sessions
First-year college students are assigned an individual coach for the academic year and participate in weekly, bi-weekly, or monthly one-on-one coaching sessions based on the unique needs of the student. The objective is to provide students a safe place to air and share concerns or challenges they are experiencing and to work with their coaches to identify solutions as they come up. These one-to-one coaching sessions help keep students on track while teaching them how to self-manage, self-direct, self-correct, and self-advocate.
One-to-One Coaching is mandatory for first and second-year college students. Once a student becomes a Junior, and their CUM GPA is 3.3 or higher, they can opt-out entirely of coaching and utilize their coach as needed. However, should their CUM GPA drop below 3.0, they are required to return to one-on-one coaching sessions.
Seniors – regardless of their CUM GPA, are no longer required to have an ACE Coach, but they are still required to share their final grades with their ACE Coach for tracking and reporting purposes. To be better prepared for life after college, seniors attend the Post-Graduation Seminar with Senior ACE Coach, Rhonda Woods with an option to receive Post-Graduation consulting. Should a senior feel the need for additional support, they can still contact their coach on an as-needed basis.
