At the College Prep Academy students attend classes five days a week in order to fully prepare them to return to school. Classes focus on improving math, reading, and writing skills and with the support of Career Navigators, you will also learn valuable skills to help you study, take notes, overcome test anxiety, and manage your time.
The College Prep Academy is for adults who need to bring up their math, reading, and writing skills to a college level and pass the TSI.
The Texas Success Initiative (TSI) is a college readiness test. Although the TSI can feel like a barrier to college, the real purpose of the test is to make sure students who need extra academic help, get it before they jump into college courses.
Capital IDEA will cover your College Prep tuition, books, and help with childcare. If a financial emergency arises, come to us. We can find resources to help with those, too.
After College Prep, you’ll continue on as a Capital IDEA student with your college tuition, books, and fees all paid for.
