STCC to offer free MCAS preparatory class in July

SPRINGFIELD —Springfield Technical Community College (STCC) will once again offer free Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System (MCAS) preparatory classes to students from the classes of 2003–2015 who did not pass the MCAS test in math, English language arts, or biology.
The “Transition to College” program is made possible by a $13,000 grant from the Massachusetts 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 STCC Director of Returning Adult Services Sue Soffen.
The next “Transition to College” session will begin Monday, July 8 at 4:30 p.m. and run through August 14. Classes will be held at STCC in the Adult Education Center (Building 27). Independent study and tutorial support will also be available 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. during this session. Curriculum materials are free to “Transition to College” attendees enrolled in the program.
Program space is limited. 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, please call (413) 755-4300.
