Program for Success
What is Program for Success (PFS)?
The PFS Mission is to develop and nurture each student’s desire to achieve his or her academic goals. We work individually with students and recognize their personal strengths and needs. Our PFS counselors facilitate academic plans to help students become more successful in their academic careers at Neumann in the hopes they will transfer the skills and traits developed in PFS to their future personal and professional lives.
As PFS participants, students work one-on-one weekly with an academic coach to gain control over academics and improve their GPA’s. Just as athletes improve their performance on the court, field or pool by working with their coach, the same concept applies to students with regards to their academic performance. Our academic coaches meet individually with students to provide an assessment of their current study skills and develop strategies to achieve academic success.
