Resiliency is the key to

academic success

ScholarCentric by Intellispark is an evidence-based program that's been shown to improve academic outcomes in grades 3-12 by helping students develop critical life skills

The path to student success

starts with the six interrelated

resiliency skills.

ScholarCentric by Intellispark is based on more than a decade of research by Professor V. Scott Solberg of Boston University’s Wheelock College of Education & Human Development. This research has shown:

  • Among matched groups of students, resiliency is the key factor in determining why one group succeeds academically while the other does not.
  • Six interrelated resiliency skills can be measured and taught.
  • When students’ resiliency increases, their academic performance improves, along with their attendance and behavior.

For more than seven years, the program has been used by districts across the United States, enabling researchers to measure its efficacy in teaching the six social and emotional skills critical to academic achievement. These studies clearly demonstrate that students who are exposed to ScholarCentric achieve greater academic success, including improved attendance, higher grades, more earned credits, and higher levels of resiliency.
