Join Our Cambridge Up
Cambridge UP is an interdisciplinary online curriculum designed to meet the specific needs of international high school students by preparing them for the cultural adjustment of studying abroad, improving their academic outcomes, and strengthening social-emotional growth.
Lessons are delivered using a student-centered, interactive approach and continuously show students the real-world applications of the skills they learn.
Social-Emotional Learning helps students to move in the direction of personal growth and maturity. These skills are necessary for international foreign exchange students to process their environment, clarify their sense of positive purpose, and provide opportunities to engage in social action in their classrooms and broader community. Cambridge UP works to strengthen stress management and coping skills so that international students can meet the challenges of living abroad head-on, improving their exchange program experience.
Study Skills Development
Study Skills are fundamental to academic competence and achievement. Students often overlook how they study as a skill that can be learned and refined. Strategies and skills for studying are critical tools to aid students in acquiring, synthesizing, and applying their knowledge. Topics such as avoiding plagiarism and research writing, often not emphasized their home countries, are critical to an international student’s success abroad. Cambridge UP helps international students utilize these skills in engaging lessons and culturally relevant approaches.
