Closing the Achievement Gap
Maryland is highly regarded for its educational system, yet thousands remain unsuccessful in achieving their educational goals. With thousands of children and young adults falling below acceptable standards of achievement, Maryland’s top educational rankings mean little in this context. There are promising efforts to close the gap happening in Montgomery County through the efforts of the Montgomery County Board of Education, dedicated MCPS teachers, and Montgomery College faculty as well as staff and administrators from both organizations. MCTV chronicles these efforts through multiple productions.
Through our inclusion in the Achieving the Dream network, Montgomery College will be a national model of educational excellence for all students by minimizing institutional barriers and maximizing opportunities to access, success, and completion. In a rapidly changing, competitive society, we will promote learning, equity, diversity, and cultural responsiveness to support student success and retention.
Achieving Collegiate Excellence and Success (ACES) is a collaborative effort among Montgomery County Public Schools, Montgomery College and the Universities at Shady Grove, designed to provide students with a seamless and supportive pathway to a bachelor’s degree.
At Montgomery College, your academic success and achievement of your goals is important to us. The Achieving the Promise Academy is a collegewide program that provides academic support for students through embedded classroom support and one-on-one individualized academic coaching.
