STCC to Offer Free MCAS Preparatory Classes in July
SPRINGFIELD — Springfield Technical Community College (STCC), in partnership with FutureWorks, will once again offer free Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) preparatory classes to students from the classes of 2013-2016 who did not pass the MCAS test in English, math, or biology.
The Pathways to Success program is made possible by an $80,000 grant from the Mass. Department of Elementary and Secondary Education.
“The program is for those who need academic remediation to pass the MCAS, obtain a high-school diploma, and transition to post-secondary education,” said Sue Soffen, MCAS Coordinator at STCC.
The next Pathways to Success session will begin Tuesday, July 14 and run through Aug. 20. Classes will be held at STCC in the Adult Education Center (Building 27) from 4:30 to 7 p.m. All classes and curriculum materials are free.
Those interested in enrolling in the program should visit the STCC Adult Education Center in Building 27 Monday through Friday between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. For additional information, call (413) 755-4300.
