Program for Developing College-Ready Students

The nonprofit National Math + Science Initiative’s College Readiness Program aims to increase the number of students taking and earning qualifying scores on math, science, and English AP tests. Besides intensive teacher training and mentoring, the initiative offers Saturday study sessions for students. It also provides resources to both teachers and students, such as test-prep books, calculators, and mock tests. Training events include 14 months’ of special access to hundreds of lessons and resources that teachers can use all year, across math, science, and English disciplines. Teachers can preview what the open resources and lessons have to offer by downloading free teacher lessons for use in their math, science, or English classroom. The program also pays a portion of students’ cost to take the AP tests and awards teachers $100 for each passing score, plus a $1,000 bonus if a certain percentage of students in specific classes score 3 or higher. Each student who scores at that level is also awarded $100. In addition to earning college credit, students may qualify for advanced placement in college courses if they take AP classes. The program is focused in parts of the country where science and engineering industries drive the economy.
