 Students Speak

High school students at Boston's Health Careers Academy participated in a semester of Efficacy for Students, using our Secondary Edition Student Workbooks. At the end of the semester we asked them, "Has Efficacy helped you understand that it is your effort that makes the difference?"  Here is what they said:

"It is the reason I'm saying 'I can do it.'"

"Yes, because it makes me work harder."

"The effort I put into school has made me more confident."

"Yes because I think that I can improve my grades as long as I try."

"Yes.  When I want to give up I think about the Efficacy advisory."

"Yes... you can do it if you put effort in, and I hadn't realized that before."

"Yes because it shows me how I work hard in school."

"Since advisory I work harder--yes."
