SuccessDNA aims to equip senior high and post secondary students with the skills that are crucial not only to academic success but to high achievement.
Research into Academic Success and High Achievement
Across the trajectory of the SuccessDNA founder’s career as an educator, she found herself increasingly intrigued by the science and psychology of high achievement and success. She found herself pondering on questions including the following:
- How do we define academic success?
- What role, if any, does inherent talent or intelligence play in high achievement?
- Why is it that some students succeed whilst others fail or fail to realise their potential?
- Are there any determinants of high achievement and success?
- Do high achievers share any commonalities and/or characteristics?
- If so, can these be distilled into a model of learning? Are they learnable?
A 12 year original research study ensued to discover those critical factors most influential in creating success in senior secondary and post secondary learning. Research findings show that what students accomplish has more to do with specific beliefs, behaviours and attitudes than with innate ability or intelligence. These predictors of success are skills which can be taught in incremental steps. All students can master these skills if they are provided with the necessary tools and disposition for greater success.
SuccessDNA is committed to ensuring all students have the opportunity to excel through high quality, personalised education. We have a number of solutions which work toward achieving this goal. Our solutions include:
