Our Mission and Goals


Our mission is to help SKC students achieve academic success and progress toward the attainment of their personal goals while also helping them master some of the critical skills needed to be successful in school, work, and life.  By employing a comprehensive, research-based approach, we help students improve their core academic skills--most typically to prepare for the HiSET, to gain or retain employment, and/or to enter, persist in, and complete college degree and certificate programs.


Major Program Goal

To help all students, particularly those with the most significant barriers, persist toward and achieve their college, employment, and life goals.
