Student Fees

Based upon student needs, the student, the student's parents, and the student's T-UP advisor design a program that addresses the skills needed to succeed in college. For example, one student may find it challenging to develop relationships in which case social skills coaching combined with a social skills group might be just the right plan of action. Or, perhaps another student is challenged by having to plan a research project so that it is done on time and reflective of the assignment parameters. In this case executive skills coaching with executive skills group experience  could be the perfect combination. Our goal is to have the right services in the correct amount available for our students.


T-UP fees are designed to enable all students to benefit from the Program. The fees are dependent upon how much support is needed and wanted. Here are the four options from which a student may choose.



Who Does Best in T-UP?

  • Students who have a history of successfully working independently for periods of at least a half hour at a time

  • Students who are motivated to go to college to learn, as well as socially open to the college experience

  • Students who have expressed an interest in a college-basedcareer


Some Things to Keep in Mind

Within each of the T-UP Program Options students may engage in specific learning opportunities that align with their needs and wants. So while one student may work on social skills with his coach another student may be working on career planning with her coach. 


Group activities will be supportive, through pratice, of the skills acquired during coaching.
