The Successful Study Skills 4 Students mission is to unlock the power of learning to improve, enhance, and support students’ academic careers.
Successful Study Skills 4 Students, (S4), provides students with the tools, strategies, and study skills needed to build successful academic careers. By teaching logical, easy-to-implement study skills, S4 helps students establish and build habits for a foundation for learning and academic success.
Almost 3,000 students have participated in S4’s evidence-based workshops in Connecticut and New York.
