IJGA has over 20 years experience educating international students.
POWER of PEERS
Peer group interactions and school culture have consistently been named
among the most influential factors on student learning. Further, a mounting
body of evidence clearly indicates that students who receive programming
focused on leadership, community and character academically outperform
their peers, get better grades, and graduate at higher rates.
In 2017, IJGA introduced peer-mentoring and leadership with IJGA Captains
and a college athlete character program called HABITUDES. Through these
programs that harness the power of peers, The IJGA Lifestyle Program helps
leverage the leadership potential of students to accomplish two goals:
Peer group interactions and school culture
have consistently been named among the
most influential factors on student learning.
• Students become more closely connected with school and more
deeply engaged in their own learning, which research makes clear
leads to greater academic achievement.
• Students develop leadership, social/emotional, non-cognitive skills
that research shows are critical to college and career success.
