Academic Advantage Program

Academic Advantage Program

Academic Advantage is an academic support program designed for a select group of incoming freshmen. The week long seminar helps first-year students develop the necessary skills and academic confidence to handle advanced learning in college. Throughout the week, Saint Xavier Professors will cover the necessary developmental math, study skills, and writing components to better help prepare students for their first-year. Then, at the end of the week, students will have the opportunity to re-test and possibly gain a higher score in their math placement.

Most importantly, students will be provided with small-group learning communities that offer them one-on-one academic attention, and a social, support network of peers as they enter SXU. 

One-Week Summer Program

During the one-week on-campus program, admitted students will gain essential tools to succeed at SXU. Students will participate in the following:

Academic Advantage workshops will be held during the following weeks. Students should select one to attend. All workshops will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Register online.  

The cost for the program is $300, which covers supplies and lunch. The $300 will be placed on your fall 2016 tuition bill.

Academic Advantage will provide a solid foundation of the skills and confidence that first-year students need to succeed at Saint Xavier University.
