Chinese international students face many academic and social issues when they arrive at American colleges
Through the SetSail Class and one-on-one guidance, we teach critical thinking, communication, and culture skills
International students attend a 16-hour class that helps them better adapt to studying and living in the US. In small groups, students learn to write better research papers, communicate more effectively with peers and professors, and get the most out of their international college experience. They learn the skills that will help them increase both GPA and confidence.
In addition to the SetSail Class, students may purchase 16 hours of one-on-one guidance to further develop the skills they learn in class. These hours will be customized based on the students’ needs and may include activities such as help with college papers, presentation practice, and cultural immersion outings.
