Get Ready to Make a Difference!

Your school and district can improve high school and college graduation rates by implementing the SREB Readiness Courses, proven to increase student readiness for college and careers. These courses are designed for underprepared students who need a different approach in a challenging and engaging environment. School districts are encouraged to send teams of teachers to the institute, which includes registration to the 30th Annual High Schools That Work Staff Development Conference, July 13-15, in Louisville, Kentucky.

The Ready for College courses, Literacy Ready and Math Ready, are offered during the senior year to prepare students for the rigors of college and postsecondary studies. The Ready for High School courses in Literacy and Math are offered during the eighth or ninth grade to prepare students for success in high school.
