Academic programs and schedules are completely individualized for FLI students. Our student-centered approach is optimal for creating a program that will allow one to more fully understand areas of strength and challenge, as well as contemplating possibilities, developing interests, and discovering passions. Courses are available on campus through the Franklin Learning Institute and the University of Connecticut Early College Experience program or online through Post University and other distance learning providers.
With a focus on “preparedness,” students identify future goals and complete individual assessments to help design a course of study that will allow them to achieve their goals. One student might feel destined to become a mathematician and consequently enroll in upper level math courses. Another classmate may want to audit college level classes without the fear of having grades on a permanent transcript. Yet another student, interested in experiential learning, could combine a high interest elective course with the practical experience of interning at an animal rescue facility. All of these scenarios and many more are possible at the Franklin Learning Institute.
Advisors help students seek the supports and structure necessary for growth and independence. Advisors meet with students to establish goals, review progress, and suggest services such as tutoring or self-improvement seminars. They play a key role in students’ course selection, done in alignment with students’ abilities, preparedness, and aspirations beyond the FLI program.
The fully staffed Learning Center supports a number of primary services. These include one-to-one tutorial services, seminars on study and organizational skills, and content-specific academic assistance. The Learning Center also offers a writing lab and oversight of testing accommodations. In addition to the primary services it delivers, the Learning Center offers dedicated space throughout the day for quiet study.
