Freshmen Intensive

During their freshman year, EFS students who are identified through the admissions process are enrolled in our Freshman Intensive (FIT) class. In this course, students will acquire the skills needed to become successful students, self-advocates, and leaders and will work with dedicated instructors who have the experience and passion to help them accomplish their goals. Throughout the year a strong emphasis is placed on the following:

  • Helping students understand and articulate their learning difference(s)
  • Developing college preparatory study habits
  • Empowering students to take intellectual risks
  • Discovering individual learning styles and thinking styles
  • Introducing students to assistive technology

The FIT facilitator will bridge the gap between students, teachers, and parents and are responsible for:

  • Monitoring students weekly progress
  • Collaborating with teachers to ensure students are taking full responsibility for their education
  • Communicating with parents frequently
