Preparing students to thrive in a university setting

University Success Reading is designed for English language learners preparing for mainstream academic environments. A flexible three-part approach includes intensive and systematic skill development tied to learning outcomes along with authentic essays written by top professors from Stanford University. The Reading strand provides real-life learning experiences that prepare students to become fluent, automatic, and competent readers who can achieve academic autonomy.


  • Each part is a self-contained module allowing teachers to focus on the highest-value skills and content.
  • Topics are aligned around science, technology, engineering, arts, and mathematics (STEAM) content.
    • Parts 1 and 2 include challenging readings that allow students to engage with the content as they build essential reading and critical thinking skills.
    • Part 3 provides a truly authentic experience with an extended essay that enables students to apply and expand the skills acquired in Parts 1 and 2.
  • Additional online readings, skill and vocabulary practices, collaboration activities, and assessments.
  • Strategies for academic success and soft skills delivered via online videos.
