Let's Get BCTC-Ready!

Thank you for your interest in our BCTC Success Academies being provided this winter!

Success Academy is a program designed to support developmental mathematics, English, and reading students to improve their college readiness placement. Students who are unsure of their college readiness placement may still register 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 Spring 2022 are encouraged to register. Note that any former Success Academy student can register again, but they will not be eligible for additional scholarship funds or prizes.


Receive $500 of scholarship-based funds toward tuition for successfully completing an academy.
