Community Action, Inc. of Central Texas sponsors a twelve week college prep academy at the ACC Goodnight Center twice a year, one in the fall and one in the spring.
The purpose of the academy is to provide high school graduates and GED diploma holders with the academic instruction and college advising that they will need to succeed in college. Although anyone with a high school diploma or GED can enroll in community college, many do not know that the first thing they will have to do is take a college placement test in reading, writing, and math.
Sixty percent of students who enroll in community college in the U.S. are placed into at least one non-credit developmental (remedial) education course and almost half of these students do not complete their developmental courses within one year. In addition, developmental classes cost the same amount of money as credit college classes.
The Community Action college prep academy is designed to prepare students for college success so that they can spend their hard earned and/or financial aid money on courses that count for a degree.
