Developing scholarly routines is important for scholars as they strive to meet the high expectations established by our academy. We give them skills they need to develop habits and mindsets that prepare them for a successful college experience. Our approach to the development of the habits that we call A.C.E.S. consists of the following:
Active Community Membership
