self-Directed Success QUEST program

A captivating online training program designed to guide your teen to master the 12 Self-Directed Success skills that release potential, empower autonomy, and cultivate confidence -- so they can achieve success in any future endeavor!

Imagine Your Teen Confident, Productive, Motivated

Your teen would be unstoppable!  It won't really matter what he knows about chemistry or history or algebra if he's not confident, productive, or motivated.  These are the outcomes they really need from their high school education.  And, the outcomes traditional education is often failing to produce. 

Enter the Self-Directed Success Quest program.  Designed to build competency across 12 key skill areas: Planning, Organization, Time Management, Task Initiation, Working Memory, Metacognition, Self-Control, Attention, Flexibility & Perseverance, Effort & Challenge, Respect & Communication, Study Skills & Critical Thinking.

Why Choose SElf-directed success

Lunar Eclipse


The Method

Our innovative Quest program engages teens in a fantasy video-game-like story with clever, but real-life challenges the student passes to earn XP and move on to the next level.


The Stage

Teens are at that life stage where they generally resist taking advice from parents, especially regarding self-management.  Let them instead learn from a gamified course with personal feedback from a specially-trained Self-Directed Success Coach.

Lunar Eclipse


The Reason

In today's world, Self-Directed Skills like time management, planning, and task initiation are foundational to success in any endeavor in life.  Information is ubiquitous, but knowing how, when, and why to use that information is the aim; self-efficacy, the goal.


The Impetus

Empowering your teen with mastery of the 12 Self-Directed Success Skills sets them up for a fulfilling, meaningful life.  And, the sooner they incorporate them into their life, the sooner they'll gain the confidence that leads to motivation, purpose, and direction.

how it works

The Course

Once the Quest Level 1: TIme Trek course opens, students watch the story lesson videos and complete actions that demonstrate one or more of the Self-Directed Success skills.  Some of the actions will require the student to show evidence which will be reviewed by their "ChronoMentor" a.k.a. Success Coach. Once approved, the student marks the action complete and earns XP.  Each level requires a certain amount of XP to master it and move on to the next level.  None of the actions take a significant amount of time.  If at any point, a student gets stuck or would like help brainstorming, they can message the Success Coach for assistance.

Group Coaching Calls

Each week for 5 weeks, students will gather on a Zoom call led by their Self-Directed Success Coach who will lead fun group challenges, provide guidance, answer any questions, and motivate!
