Abstract

The characteristics of established academic success programs that help close the achievement gap are outlined. Effective academic success programs develop students' and others' commitment to academic success, develop students' content knowledge so they can complete assignments and participate in academic activities, develop students' competencies in those areas essential to academic success in general and the teacher's class in particular, and develop students' capacity to meet the demands of various academic tasks.
