Let's Get BCTC-Ready!

Thank you for your interest in our BCTC Success Academies!

Success Academy is a program designed to support developmental mathematics, English, and reading students to improve their college readiness placement and gain skills to increase academic success.

BCTC Success Academies are held each Summer and Winter session and are FREE for students!

Students who are unsure of their college readiness placement may still apply to Success Academy, but a review of registrations will include a college readiness check to determine your eligibility to participate. Students who are enrolled in MAT 011, MAT 075, ENC 091, or IRW 085 for the Fall 2023 are highly encouraged to apply.

*Note that any former Success Academy student can register again, but they will not be eligible for additional scholarship funds or prizes.
