Sydney, Australia. Excelling with Xcel

Eremeran Hills Study Centre has developed a study techniques program for high school girls. Called Xcel, it is aimed at helping the girls acquire self-motivation in their studies and good habits of intellectual work. One distinctive feature is teaching the «why» as well as the «how» of study.

Starting with the teaching of Blessed Josemaria Escriva that «for a modern apostle, an hour of study is an hour of prayer,» the Xcel program tries to instill in the high school girls the conviction that their daily study and duties are a direct path towards sanctity. The Xcel instructors motivate them to dedicate time and effort to acquiring effective study techniques. Students learn to organize their time well, as well as to set realistic goals for themselves, prepare for exams, and work effectively both on their own and as part of a team.

The good results of the Xcel program have led parents to spread the word to many more families. The sessions are held three times each week during the school year.
