Achieving the Promise Academy

Achieve Your Academic Goals

No matter where you are on your academic journey, the Achieving the Promise Academy (ATPA) supports your success here at MC. In and out of the classroom, ATPA's Academic Coaches can help you build on your strengths and target areas for improvement so you can excel academically and achieve your full potential.

Participating in academic coaching has been shown to help students achieve their academic goals, build their confidence, pass their classes, improve their grades, save money, and stay on track to graduate or transfer on time⁠—and it's free and open to any student registered for courses at MC.

What People are Saying
No athlete or musician is embarrassed or reluctant to have a coach; on the contrary, they consider it mandatory. The same should be true of academics. No student should be hesitant to accept from an expert ATPA Academic Coach the encouragement and coaching to propel them toward academic success. It can give you the winning edge.
