The Strategies for Academic Success class is designed for cadets who want to improve or sharpen their study skills. It is open to all cadets (regardless of GPA or academic standing) but it is especially helpful for cadets who are at-risk of falling below the Academy's high academic standards.  Many cadets have greatly improved their GPAs over the years by taking this course and have rated it very highly. 
Specifically, this course will provide ideas and strategies that will maximize study time in order to achieve academic success.  Some skills, like note-taking and test-taking skills, can be used throughout all four years at the Academy, while other skills, such as time management, goal setting, and avoiding procrastination are life-long skills that can be used at work and at home, as well as at the Academy.
Individualized help is also available on a walk in basis. Counselors help cadets build individual study plans to include realistic time management plans.
