Free Kilgore College summer program will help students improve academically

Posted: Updated:

KILGORE/GREGG COUNTY (KYTX) - Kilgore College is looking for students to enroll in its annual Summer Bridge Program beginning July 15. 

 The program, called the Preparatory Academy for College Excellence (PACE) is a free way for students to refresh skills in i reading and writing or math in hopes of eliminating developmental coursework.

 The course will be taught by KC instructors and will meet Mondays through Thursdays from July 15 through July 31.

 Students may study writing or math from 9 to 11:30 a.m. and/or reading from 12:30 to 3 p.m.

 The program is specifically aimed at new students who have tested into developmental courses at the 0306 or 0308 level in reading, writing or math and wish to do better on the Accuplacer test.

 At the end of the program, students will re-take the Accuplacer test for free on Aug. 1.

Space is limited.

 To enroll, or for more information, contact math instructor Mariann Baker at (903) 983-8645 or e-mail: mbaker@kilgore.edu; or call English instructor Becky Johnson at (903) 983-8223 or e-mail: rjohnson@kilgore.edu.
