Summer Study Skills Program

St. Pius X High School is providing summer sessions in the most proven study skills curriculum available, the Take Us Higher Learning program. This program was developed to provide students the skills and strategies necessary to succeed in school. The goal is to develop and hone executive functioning skills in adolescents to reduce school related stress on the path to academic achievement. Success in school is not solely dependent upon intellectual ability; students must also learn strategies to effectively approach learning. Through instruction, thought, and discussion Camp SMMRRT teaches the fundamentals of learning to help students work smarter, not harder. This program is unique because it allows students access to the online version of the course to serve as a resource for practical application of the skills and strategies learned during the camp.
