Student's Application 






The primary mission of the Summer Math Academy 2014 is to equip students with the information and tools necessary for success in the mathematical sequences of classes they take at El Camino College to graduate or transfer.  A secondary goal is to provide students with another opportunity to save semesters taking non-degree applicable or non-transfer level pre-requisite math classes by scoring higher on the Mathematics Placement Test (MPT).  By making the MPT scores significantly higher for placement into higher level courses than the general student population, the Academy will facilitate student success for its students testing into higher level classes.
