Why the program is important to student success

Completing Algebra by the 10th grade is a leading indicator that a student will graduate from high school. Achievement Connections is aimed at meeting the needs of students who are under-performing in math, particularly in Algebra. Students are recommended to the program by their math teachers. The goal of the program is to increase the number of students passing Algebra by 10th grade. Achievement Connections also provides tutoring to 10th graders in geometry to continue supporting students through key high school math courses.
