The Evolution of Pacia Life’s Coaching Model
Pacia Life’s Coaching Model serves young adults clients who need a personalized approach to their education. Many young adults are at some stage of their college journey. While their individual circumstances are unique, they generally fall into a few groups.
Students who have attended college but are taking a break.
These young people have encountered struggles, whether academically, emotionally, or socially, resulting in them leaving school voluntarily – or being asked to leave due to failing grades. When working with these students, it is important to be acutely aware that they are in a precarious place in their relationship with academics and their view of themselves and their competency.
Students can only experience so many perceived failures or setbacks before giving up on college entirely, so it’s very intentional how to guide their next steps. This often involves slowly getting them back into college-level work and making sure support systems are in place to ensure their ability to navigate the challenges.
Students exploring the option of college for the first time.
These students need guidance going through the entire college application process, from researching schools and areas of study to visiting college campuses, navigating applications and essays, and all the way through to submission. Pacia Life & Evolve Tutoring and College Admissions Coaching, an award-winning Boston based company, work closely together to shepherd them through the entire process.
Students who are not sure if traditional college is for them.
Even though a large percentage of high school graduates complete a full-time college that leads to a bachelor’s degree, that is not the only choice. Those students who are unsure of what’s next need guidance and support to help them find local or online classes in areas they have interest in to help ascertain whether they are academically in the place even to pursue college-level work. Pacia Life assists researching alternatives with them, whether that be a specialized associate’s degree or a certificate in a field that is not only practical but is also stackable and portable as they progress into their professional life.
Pacia Life has the team and resources in place to support all clients in their own personal journey to education.. Alan Houghtaling, Academic Director, and the team have helped students finish high school, re-enter college, get into their dream college, attain professional certifications, and get vocational training in a skilled trade. The sky is truly the limit.
