The Center for Academic Success
The CAS is dedicated to empowering students to achieve academic success. We believe in creating powerful learning environments that foster a growth mindset, metacognitive awareness, and self-efficacy. We strive to build an atmosphere of learning characterized by respect, support, and meaningful student engagement. We are committed to providing academic support to each and every student who walks in our door.
The Center for Academic Success provides one-to-one tutoring, small-group tutoring, and workshops in a variety of subjects offered by the college. English, math, and ESL tutoring is provided during all hours of operation. Workshops and tutoring in all other subjects have schedules that are available on this website or in the CAS. All services are free and available on a walk-in basis. No appointments are necessary, but feel free to call ahead for wait times, schedules, and changes.
