Gov. Christie Highlights Remedial College-Prep Program at Atlantic Cape

January 15, 2016

I am pleased to share that our statewide College Readiness Now efforts were recently recognized by Governor Chris Christie in his State of the State address on Tuesday, January 12.

The College Readiness Program, known as Math Boot Camp to Atlantic Cape students, was a pilot program launched during the summer of 2014 as an option to recent high school graduates scoring within a certain zone on the ACCUPLACER, the college’s assessment exam. Students were put on a fast track to college-level math classes by working through concepts with the assistance of Atlantic Cape math faculty where they were found to need improvement. The program’s results have been extremely positive and we are grateful for the recognition Atlantic Cape received by Governor Christie.
