High School Prep4Success Curriculum

Prep4Success Academy curriculum resources reinforce your academic program by helping students in grades 6 through 9 understand the changes and challenges they will face as they enter high school. 
Additionally, Prep4Success can help students build important skills they will need in high school, college, and beyond.

Helping You Identify “Big Questions”

Many students tell us that school feels either overwhelming or boring. Often, these students lack the appropriate time management, organizational, or study skills, as well as a clear vision for their future to help them succeed.


In other cases, the students do not understand the significance of a GPA, a transcript, credits, or class rank. They may not know how to set realistic goals. We can help!

Prep4Success Academy has designed practical lessons and coordinating activities to address the most common concerns that middle school and younger high school students have.  Check out what our happy customers are saying.

A Program that Fits Your School!

Our flexible curriculum enables you to select lessons from a wide range of topics that relate to your students' needs. Each unit addresses questions that students typically ask when they enter high school.


You may choose the scope and sequence to determine how and when to introduce these life-changing topics!


Some schools take full advantage of our cumulative lessons by creating a “High School Prep4Success” class or a “Successful Study Skills” class. That way, students have time to cover the topics in a thoughtful and intentional manner.

In many cases, schools take a standard class time once a week or once a month to cover topics from the Prep4Success curriculum. Our lessons fit easily into existing classes, such as: 

  • Bible class

  • Elective class

  • Homeroom

  • Study Hall

  • You can also present these important lessons during a Freshman Orientation workshop.

Editable Lessons and Activities

Most Prep4Success lessons, PowerPoint presentations, activities, and assessments are editable, and you can print materials as needed. As a result, you can create custom lessons that target your students' interests as they develop essential life skills!


Each lesson includes a script to help you explore the topics, while encouraging collaboration and meaningful discussion. Click on the following units for details.
