Transitional Studies - Basic Skills

Fall classes begin on Monday, September 19, 2016

We offer low-tuition classes for students whose basic reading, writing, and math skills are below ninth-grade level. These classes build basic skills that eventually lead to high school equivalency. All students must take a placement test to determine what level they need to begin their studies. Learn basic reading, writing and math. Class levels are Math 1 through 6 and Communication levels 2 through 6.


If you would like to take classes, you MUST attend a CASAS Assessment Session.
