Learning and development support from coaches and academic reviewers
Students learn from a variety of sources:
All work at College for America comes in the form of projects—real world, online scenarios for students to learn within, integrate competencies, and submit deliverables, such as written assignments, presentations, spreadsheets, video and audio recordings, and more.
Every project is reviewed and evaluated by a CfA academic reviewer, who returns detailed written feedback to the student within 48 hours to help them understand which competencies they have mastered and where they need to keep working.
From day one, every student at College for America is assigned a CfA Learning Coach who helps them tackle their degree program.
Learning Coaches are not academic tutors. Their job is to work with students to help them learn successful work and study skills; connect the dots between their work, life, and academics; provide support when they hit a roadblock; and help them celebrate their successes and stay motivated.
Learning Coaches are trained professionals with experience in motivating and helping others succeed in their learning and development.
