Study Skills

St. Thomas Aquinas High School is committed to ensuring that all students are given every opportunity to be successful academically. In an effort to help our students, a study skills workshop was created, and is presented to all freshmen students.

The class is presented over a two-day period and includes topics such as setting goals, becoming aware of personal learning styles, time management, tips for beating procrastination, improving concentration, listening, reading and note-taking skills, as well as how to prepare for tests. Students participated in hands-on activities and collaborated with each other in solving various "what if?" scenarios.

The attached packet was given to each student during the workshop.  We encourage you to read through the packet and take every opportunity to reinforce these skills, tips and techniques with your students.
