In two thousand & twenty two, the U.S. Department of Education on Post-Secondary planning, concluded that 47% of high school students entering colleges and universities are unprepared and “ill-equipped” to handle the academic complexities associated with the institution of choice (percentages are even higher for students with a diagnosed learning disability). Although there have been an influx of early intervention methods at colleges and universities to curve attrition rates; academic advising services as a whole continue to fall short with respect to efficacy standards.
EAA aims to combat these percentage numbers by supporting a model that increases visibility and opportunities for skill acquisition amongst students and educational stakeholders.
We believe in collaboration rather than standing alone. Much like our program title, Educational Associates & Affiliates are rooted in our connections to institutions where our students attend.
Founded in 2009, as a pilot program; EAA started with its first cohort group at a private college. Within the first year, 97% of EAA students earned a cumulative 3.8 GPA and proved to be an unstoppable force in promoting and demonstrating collegiate success. Since then, EAA continues to produce stellar results and has evolved to several colleges and universities domestically as well as abroad.
We coexist and partner with "Institutions of Higher Learning" to achieve stellar results for our students while collaborating with faculty and staff. Many of our Academic Coaches have been employed at schools where our EAA students are attending.
We believe it's important to review the student's progress continuously and provide regular feedback to our parents. Keeping parents in the loop, will ensure students are challenged and encouraged to achieve their best. A report is generated and sent to the student, parent and EAA Academic Coordinator after each session. Sample Template Report
