College Prep Center

Our mission is to help students improve their skills in order to be successful in their college careers. Instructors in the College Prep Center work with individual students who are referred by their counselors. We offer assistance with math, writing/English grammar, and study skills. We offer test preparations for GED, HSED, and ACCUPLACER. We also help English Language Learners improve their writing and conversation skills. The College Prep Center is located in the heart of the Learning Commons and instructors can access additional resources as necessary.
