Transition Workshop 

Upper Elementary & Junior High

Academic coaching in Calgary


for students in grades 5 - 7

From binders and backpacks to tests and teams, the leap from elementary to junior high school can be daunting for both students and parents. 

This workshop is specially designed for students who are adjusting to Junior High and would like to learn some unique systems and strategies to empower them as they continue to navigate the hallways as a small fish in a big pond.

This is an outstanding workshop to enable overall success not just in school, but in life.
