College Readiness

Our mission is to provide development opportunities for teachers, administrators and students to deepen their knowledge of academic content and increase their awareness of the importance of college readiness skills.

Our programming is designed with the goal of ensuring students are academically prepared for the rigors of college.

Through intensive teacher professional development programming focused on both content and pedagogy, we provide teachers with opportunities to hone their skills in order to better prepare their students for the rigors of their post-secondary education. We believe the cornerstone of college readiness for students is rigorous coursework led by highly trained teachers.

We work in partnership with district administrators to help them understand their role in establishing a college going culture on their campuses and in supporting the work of teachers to increase the depth and complexity of their college preparatory courses.

We also provide development opportunities for students to increase their awareness of the importance of college and to master the skills necessary for their post-secondary success.
