Student Support Categories

The Student Support Categories

The NPSS focuses on five categories of evidence-based student supports that together can meet the needs of students today. Research shows that these supports can result in gains in reading and math, high school and college graduation rates, reductions in chronic absenteeism, and improved student well-being and mental health.

 

Post-Secondary Transition Coaches

Support post-secondary exposure, college search and fit/match, college application creation, financial aid applications, and navigation of post-secondary transitions.

Academic Tutors

A form of teaching, one-on-one or in a small group, towards a specific goal. High-impact tutoring leads to months of additional learning gains for students by supplementing (but not replacing) students’ classroom experiences. High-impact tutoring responds to individual needs and complements students’ existing curriculum.
