Pittsfield: BCC summer program targets high school graduates | Community news


Berkshire Community College announces a new summer program designed to help high school graduates prepare for college.

“Boost Your College Career,” created with grants from the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, will accept 30 students into the program free of charge. The six-week program will take place during the BCC summer session from July 12 to August 19.

Free transportation will be provided. High school students in Berkshire County are encouraged to contact their guidance counselors to see if they are eligible and learn how to apply for the program.

Accepted students will be assigned to an uncredited College Reading Strategies course or co-required English Composition I and College Writing Practices courses. Students who fall into the latter group and successfully complete the courses will receive college credit.

Students enrolled in the program will also be offered academic success coaching as well as a reading course and math tutoring sessions based on their assessment and individual needs.

For more information about the program, students should contact their guidance counselor; Laurie Gordy, Dean of Humanities, Behavioral and Social Sciences, at [email protected]; or BCC admissions counselors at [email protected]
