Pace University’s School of Education Offers New College Success Program for High School Juniors and Seniors

NEW YORK, June 4 – Pace University’s School of Education today announced the launch of Headways, a new summer program to help students understand the ways they learn to achieve academic success.

Headways is an intensive two-week summer program for high school juniors and seniors to explore learning strategies and technology tools to help students succeed in college. Students will learn to:

•           Plan and organize (executive function)

•           Manage time effectively

•           Develop strategies for problem solving

•           Improve attention, memory and academic language

•           Enhance writing, research and presentation skills

Headways prepares students (including those with learning challenges) for the demands of college and work settings after high school. Through the program, students explore and understand their individual learning profiles and identify a personalized set of technology tools and digital strategies for academic success. After the program, students will receive detailed recommendations for digital strategies that will help them succeed in school and at work.

Developed by Pace University professors, learning specialists and college counseling professionals, Headways is grounded in current neuroscience principles. Engaging, interactive experiences include an outdoor problem-solving adventure and a full-day hands-on workshop in a neuroscience laboratory at Rockefeller University. A parent information session focused on what parents need to know to support the transition to college is also included in the program.

The program runs from August 5 – 16, and costs $1,500, with either payment in full or a $100 deposit due by July 1.

For more information, or to register a student for this dynamic learning opportunity, please visit or contact Karen Ferro, School of Education Senior Staff Associate, at (914) 773-3872 or e-mail
