PEAK Performance: A-B Tech Success Coaching

The PEAK Success Coaching program at A-B Tech is a college initiative aimed at empowering students for academic success and beyond. Professional success coaches embedded within academic divisions provide personalized support, guidance, and resources to students. Coaches work with students from pre-enrollment to graduation, assisting with goal setting, engagement, connecting to resources, and career guidance, facilitating the acquisition of institutional and life-skills knowledge required to establish resiliency and empowerment to achieve long and short-term goals.

The PEAK Success Coaching Program focuses on enhancing students' academic performance, confidence, and skills through a collaborative relationship between students and coaches. Through the program, students will experience increased satisfaction with the college and their educational experience, success rates, retention, and credential completion, along with decreased equity gaps in academic performance and graduation rates. This initiative aligns with the strategic goals of RISE Above and foundational focus areas such as learner focus, barrier removal, and equity.
