Teens need support and concrete life skills to be On Point. Life On Point is a weekly "life education" course designed to give the support, accountability and skills students need to thrive. Life On Point is tailored to meet the needs of small groups and addresses academics, leadership, life skills, planning for the future, healthy lifestyle choices and avoidance of risk behaviors. Currently, Life On Point is offered in 18 area middle and high schools. This Curricula also possesses empirical evidence supporting increases in "soft skills" which impact college, career, and citizenship readiness, many of which align with The Common Core State Standards for Education's "Habits of Mind."
