WESTPORT, Conn. -- Westport Continuing Education will  host two workshops of the Successful Study Skills 4 Students (S4) program for high school students: Study Skills 100, and Study Skills 200 at Staples High School.  

The workshops foster academic achievement by teaching students key study strategies that help them learn and achieve better academic success.

The sessions will be held at Staples High School immediately after school.

Here are the schedules:

Basic Study Skills 100: Tuesdays, Jan. 20, 27, Feb. 3, 10, 24, from 2:30 pm – 4 p.m.

Advanced Study Skills 200: Tuesdays, March 10, 17, 24, 31, April 7, from 2:30 pm – 4 pm

“We have received requests for the S4 program for high school students, and are pleased to offer it at Staples,” said Brian Fagan, interim continuing education director of Westport Continuing Education. “Study skills are a critical and necessary foundation for academic success.”

The S4 program is founded on educational research and evidence-based studies. Its highly interactive approach is designed to clearly demonstrate how to apply students’ own curriculum and course material to the taught methodologies and systems. The S4 programs are designed to bolster academic confidence, motivation and preparation as academic workload and expectations increase.

Skills taught include the following: planning, organizing, executive functioning strategies, as well as quiz, test, and long-term project preparation strategies. The workshops are taught by experienced teachers, and each workshop is limited to 15 students.

Each 5-session 7.5-hour workshop is $395. The workshops include all in-class materials, original S4 Teach Sheets for each skill taught, and post-session parent emails after each class. 

To register for either or both student workshop(s) visit the S4 website. More information may be obtained by calling S4 at 203-418-2003 or by emailing
