"Mark, you are won't get anywhere without studying", His mother use to tell him when he use to waist all his time playing rather that studying. Mark wasn't such a good student because he wouldn't spend any time studying, until one day his parents decided to send him to Cushing Academy, a boarding school in the USA, which they knew it was going to improve his study habits and help him being more responsible. But what really amazed his parents was this period of time used to study called "Study Hall." Because of its amazing results, preparation for college, and providing responsibility, Study Hall remains as one of the vital qualities Cushing Academy possess and give students an opportunity to lead in higher education. Study Hall was Mark's first negative impression of Cushing Academy. He thought this was done in order to keep the students in silence and restrain them from having freedom. After he experienced Study Hall at Cushing for over two months, he could really see the changes and results it produced on him.

He realized that he didn't have to worry about having enough time for his studies. Also, he could see his grades improve every week. One day Mark received a phone call from his mother. Before picking up the phone, the only thought he had in his mind was that he was going to get grounded for his grades or performance at school. He answered the phone and there was his proud mother congratulating him for his wonderful grades he had. But how did he do it, she asked.

His answer was only a simple phrase. "Study Hall mom, I thought this was a torture but it ended up helping me to organize my studies." As Mark was very satisfied with his results, many other students also express to their parents how helpful was Study Hall in Cushing Academy. The same what Study Hall keeps students in their desks from 8: 00 pm to 10: 00 pm, it's a great method of improving a student's responsibility. When someone is into a routine of doing something every day at the same time, he gets use to it and sometimes keeps that routine forever. One of the reasons study hall is done in Cushing is to provide discipline and responsibility to a student in order to study by your own in College in a near future. It will also make a student keep at least two hours a day to review and study for college.

Keeping time for your studies is a great sign of responsibility. In many aspects, Study Hall contributes to a great future by providing responsibility and discipline in a student's studies. As a great preparation for college, Study Hall is known by helping students to improve their study skills in a great amount. One of the biggest worries of Mark was that he wouldn't be prepared to do homework by himself in college, but he was mistaken. Study Hall made him conscious of grades. He thought of the good colleges he could get in if he had good grades, and the respect and admiration he could get of teachers and friends.

But the problem was how to manage his time to do all of his homework? But there was Study Hall. A great period of two hours that helps you to study with silence and concentrate in order to do a great job in school. By doing this, study hall is an incredible way to prepare a student for his future studies in college. Summarizing, study hall can work for lots of purposes. It can make students and parents happy when the student goes to college and knows how to manage his time to put studies first. Also, it can provide a great amount of responsibility and discipline in a student.

And last but not least, Study Hall can make you see great results regarding to a student's grades and habits. As Mark graduated from Cushing Academy and went home, his mother received him with a big hug and a simple question "How did you do it?".
