Contact us for more information

Phase 1 - GFSF Awareness and Stakeholder Buy-in

Phase 2 - Freshman Course Planning & Implementation

Phase 3 - Planning & Implementation for a School-wide Initiative

Using an adaptation of the 10-Step Plan from the George Washington University's Freshman Transition Initiative, (which inspired the GFSF model) this step-by-step process was developed to help you create, implement, and sustain your Get Focused...Stay Focused!® program. It was designed to provide best practice strategies and resources so your implementation of the Get Focused...Stay Focused!® (GFSF) program or Freshman Transition Initiative can be quick and cost efficient. This roadmap will help you develop a program that will increase graduation rates (both high school and college), assure ALL students are college and career ready, and provide students with the skills and attitudes to enter the workforce and develop a self-sufficient life.

You don’t have to reinvent the wheel. You can have a robust, PROVEN career and college ready program up and running successfully within six months (or less). Career Choices Series
